View Full Version : select vertices by attribute values...

04 April 2003, 04:01 PM
There is a way to select a list of objects or components by an attribute value?
Example: i want to select a particular list of vertices in a poly object that has a the same x and y values, defined by a string.
Hope this is possible and thanks in advance for possibly replies.

The best way is to list all of the object's vertices and then loop over them, testing as you go:

string $object = "nurbsSphere1";

string $vertices[] = `ls ($object + (".cv "))`;

for ($currvert in $vertices) {
// test their attributes in here

Note that in your case you do NOT want your test to be simple equality, because two vertices may have insignificantly different numerical values yet be so close that you want to treat them as being at the same location. You should really test for their proximity to each other.
