Remove objects from AOI manager

(Originally posted by Rik on 12/22/2006)

Is it possible to remove all AOIs called Object * from an AOI list.

Object 1
Object 2

The option IpAoiManager(AOIDELETE, "Object "&*) is not recognized.

I would like to clear AOI starting with object without knowing how many objects there are to start with (so no loop).

    Unfortunately, IpAoiManager is not written to handle wild card characters, so you will have to use a loop:

    Sub Clear_AOI_List()
    	Dim numAOIs As Integer
    	Dim sOut As String*255
    	Dim i As Integer
    	' Find out how many AOIs there are
    	ret = IpAoiGet(AOIMGR_GET_NUM, 0, numAOIs)
    	' Iterate through the AOIs in reverse order
    	For i = numAOIs - 1 To 0 Step -1
    		ret = IpAoiGetStr(AOIMGR_GET_NAME, i, sOut)
    		'If the AOI's name starts with Object, then delete it
    		'  Notice that the if statement is written to be case insensitive
    		If UCase(Left(sOut, 6)) = "OBJECT" Then
    			ret = IpAoiManager(AOIDELETE, sOut)
    		End If
    	Next i
    End Sub
