Hi Guys,

So I've been stuck on this problem for a while and am having no luck getting past it so far.

Specifically, I am looking for a way to DELETE a feature after I've created it via DM script commands?

For example, I currently have a script to create a BOOLEAN feature to combine two bodies using the command "var NewBoolean= ag.gui.CreateBoolean()" and the corresponding example code shown below.

var NewBoolean= ag.gui.CreateBoolean()
NewBoolean.Name = "Combine Function"
NewBoolean.Operation = 0
ag.listview.ActivateItem("Tool Bodies")

body1 =
agb.AddSelect(agc.TypeBody, body1)

body2 =
agb.AddSelect(agc.TypeBody, body2)

ag.listview.ItemValue = "Apply"


However in my automated process I would like to be able to select and delete this (and other) defined functions so that I can create a new one.

I have done alot of reading through the forums which lead me to the helpful file agEventHandler.js where I have found the commands "agTreeDeleteSelectedFeature(0)"; and "agDelete(0)"; but so far these only seems to give me syntax and object errors.

Is anyone familiar with this kind of DM command?
