this is sample of code that I use in v8i for selecting shared cell elements on specified level. I'm trying to migrate code to CE but it seems that all shared cells from all levels are found. Workaround is to test level of every shared cell in file.Is this some change in VBA or is this a bug? Also, I'm using Map PowerView so I'm not sure if same happens in Microstation.
Dim ee As ElementEnumerator
Dim esk As New ElementScanCriteria
Set esk = New ElementScanCriteria
Set ee = ActiveModelReference.Scan(esk)
Dim num As Long
num = 0
If ee.Current.IsSharedCellElement Then
num = num + 1

Please, respect the best practices and specify a version of the used product exactly. There were many version of MicroStation (as well as OpenCities Map) released, so it's important to know what version is used.
Also, when you decide to do not ask in Geospatial Programming forum (which is recommended for OCM products), but here in MicroStation one, specify both OCM version and on which PowerPlatform version it's based.

It looks like bug, because the level is set, but it's ignored in combination with shared cell instances. I recommend to create Service Request for this issue.

Yes ... technically it's "to test the level of share cell instance header".
It's exactly what is done internally (when the scanning works correctly), so I do not see any problem in such solution.

There are some (many?) useless lines, duplicating default functionality and producing worse code:

It's probably a bug and I created SR alreday. I just wanted to know if anybody encounterd this.
Thank you for pointing out .We have enumerator resets which will be soon deleted :)
Other pointed out lines are there for testing purposes.
We have identified a problem in the OpenCities Map software as-relates to Shared Cells , and are working on a fix for it.

thanks for the info.
On the other hand, the level-based scan criteria does not work with Shared cells in plain MicroStation too, so I guess it's something in PowerPlatform API ;-)
Hi Jan Šlegr,
FYI. Artur Goldsweer is working with the Civil team on this and will provide an update for any related Defects for base MicroStation/PowerPlatform.
[RH-20210720 UPDATE: BUG 673741 has been filed to address this issue]
Thank you and HTH,Bob
