If.....then.......

how can i make it search the name in the selected objects instead of the entire scene?
the script searches the entire scene i want to search only the selected objects for G1.

thanks in advance.

on insert pressed do
(
objVar = $G1
(
if isvalidnode objVar then
(
Print "1"
)
else
(
Print "2"
)
)
)

objToFind = "ObjName" objVar

	objToFind = "ObjName"
	objVar = $G1
	(
		if isvalidnode objVar and objVar.children.count != 0 do
		(
			node = for o in objVar.children where o.name == objToFind collect o
			if node.count != 0 then
			(
				Print "1"
			)
			else
			(
				Print "2"
			)
		)
	)

Thanks but

Hi Thanks for the replay but its not working for me.
it keeps printing 2 if the object is selected or not. how can i have it print "1" if selected and if the name = G1 else print "2"

rollout test "Test"
(
listBox testList items:#("Item 1","Item 2")
button addToList "Add Item To End Of List" width:180
button insertToList "Insert Before Current Item" width:180
button removeFromList "Remove Current Item" width:180

on addToList pressed do
testList.items = append testList.items "test"
on insertToList pressed do
(
objToFind = "ObjName"
objVar = $G1
(
if isvalidnode objVar and objVar.children.count != 0 do
(
node = for o in objVar.children where o.name == objToFind collect o
if node.count != 0 then
(
Print "1"
)
else
(
Print "2"
)
)
)
)

on removeFromList pressed do
(
testList.items = deleteItem testList.items testList.selection
)
)
createDialog test 200 220

`

try those:

for i = 1 to selection.count do (
	if selection[i].name == "G1" do (
		print "1"
		exit
	)
	if i == selection.count do print "2"
)

or this one:
(it also collect objects with specified name)

someArray = for o in selection where o.name == "G1" collect o
if someArray.count > 0 then print "1" else print "2"
