UI's selection filter setting ignored by rs.SelectObjects


#1

In V5 SR12, the UI’s selection filter setting can affect whether objects can be selected by rs.SelectObjects.
In V6.0.17031.12411, 1/31/2017, this is not true.

For example, in both V5 & V6,

  1. Create a curve and a point in an empty model.
  2. In the Selection Filter window, enable Points and disable Curves.
  3. Run the following:
import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs

def main():
    
    rs.UnselectAllObjects()
    
    idAllObjs = rs.AllObjects()
    print "{} objects found by rs.AllObjects.".format(len(idAllObjs))
    
    print "{} objects reported by rs.SelectObjects.".format(rs.SelectObjects(idAllObjs))
    
    print "{} objects reported by rs.SelectedObjects.".format(len(rs.SelectedObjects()))

if __name__ == '__main__': main()

In V5,
Only the point is selected.
2 objects found by rs.AllObjects.
2 objects reported by rs.SelectObjects. Should be 1.
1 objects reported by rs.SelectedObjects.

In V6,
Both the point and curve are selected.
2 objects found by rs.AllObjects.
2 objects reported by rs.SelectObjects. Should be 1.
2 objects reported by rs.SelectedObjects. Should be 1.

I see the pros and cons of V5 vs. V6 behaviors. Without using rs.Command, is there a way for V6 scripts to honor the UI’s selection filter setting?

Thank you,
