How to select the select simalr option like autocad ?
If you want the same as AutoCAD and Revit then this is not available in MicroStation.
Please use the vote option to get this added..
The idea of Ian is a good one.In addition to that:You may want to look into the dropdown of the Element-Selection Tool. There you have several options to select elements either by attributes, element type and much more. You can find these options when you press the litte black triangle in the Element-Selection Toolbox,

Its a bit clunky, but you can use the very old school "Select By Attributes" dialog to do this.
Select the element first then use the Select By Attribute dialog ->Tools->Set Select by from element, then hit the execute button.
You should be able to drive this with some key-ins which you can always add to a function key:
MDL LOAD SELECTBY DIALOG;SELECTBY ELEMENT;SELECTBY EXECUTE
Robert, that will execute without allowing you to select it. YOu could select the element and then run the key in or you will need to add a %d before the execute. MDL silentload SELECTBY;SELECTBY ELEMENT;%d;SELECTBY EXECUTE
Note in u184.108.40.206 the %d doesn't seem to working, I tried both SELECTBY ELEMENT;%d;SELECTBY EXECUTE and SELECTBY ELEMENT%d;SELECTBY EXECUTE and it just seems to execute on the last selected element. I guess making a selection first is your best bet.
