how to convert from AIS_InteractiveObject to AIS_Shape?

yeon cheol Kang's picture


In document, there is no solution and method. So i ask.

There is no way to convert?

Hi Yeon,

AIS_Shape is derived from AIS_InteractiveObject, so just Downcast AIS_InteractiveObject:

Handle(AIS_Shape) anAISObj = Handle(AIS_Shape)::DownCast(anAIS_InteractiveObj);

To add my 2 cents, along with doing what Venu said, you can do a check if the AIS_InteractiveObject is really an AIS_Shape by calling the IsKind method. Like:

Handle(AIS_Shape) anAISShape = Handle(AIS_Shape)::DownCast(anInteractiveObj);

This is important because the objects like Trihedron also can be selected by the user and may get into your code where you try to downcast it to an AIS_Shape when it really isn't.
