PokeIt is a MicroStation VBA application. It's used to select, isolate or hide elements based on their attributes, such as level, color, line style, etc. The filter criterion is populated from a selected, or "poked," element rather than from a list in a dialog box.
PokeIt is also used to create elements similar to a selected element.
There are also a couple of additional “bonus” commands, Invert Selection and Fence Subset.
The interface of PokeIt is the context menu, accessed with a right press and hold on an element..

I like your user interface design. Those pop-up menus work around VBA's deficiency where menus are concerned.

Thanks Jon. I used to have a standalone interface but the context menu approach was so good I ditched it.
I like the tool and its simply approach. I actually raised an IDEA to get this into the main product. Thanks for sharing
I'm pushing for that internally too Ian. Thanks for your support!
the right-click menu is available, but once used any command, I'm getting error > VBA interface error: unable to run macro - 0x80040552
any idea what's wrong?
