Possible to grab transparent command return result in variable?

Hi,

 

I have made my fast selection routine that collects members of a network as a chain and returning as a selection set . I would like to get the returning ss running it as transparent, that is while already being inside an other routine on an active ssget prompt, type 'my_fast_selection_commad and get the ss coming from the transparent command. From what I have tried, it seems it is not possible?

 

Can a transparent command return anything apart from nil?

So if I am reading this correctly you ant something like:

(not in code tags since this isn't really code, just the idea)

 

(defun c:testlisp ( / )

 [Do some setp stuff]

 (setq MySS (ssget... get selection se)

    [But can type in (my_fast_selection_command) in setq MySS (my_fast_selection_command)]

 [do more stuff]

)

 

I have something that will do this with an entsel, rather than a selection set I think - it might be able to be modified using SS

I think using a while loop and an initget night be working something like

 

 

(setq endloop "No")

(initget my_fast_selection_command)

(whle (= "No" endloop)

  (if getsting "my_fast_selection_command (progn (setq MySS (my_fast_selection_command))(setq endloop "Yes")))

  (setq MySS (ssget...))

);end while

 

 

Somthing like that if I remember what I did correctly - gives you smething to thinkaboutfor now anyway.

Maybe this example of a erase shortcut note the transparent 'ZZZ must use single quote for transparent.

 

(defun c:zzz () (ssget "X" '((0 . "LINE"))))

 

Erase 'zzz Enter
