Default Rubber Selection

Sometimes I need to select an object(s) within a very complex drawing like a city map. I just want to select a block of buildings on the map along some avenues and streets. But this task requires non rectangular selection but like rubber line one. So I wrote just a little script with one Form and I used ActiveDocument.GetUserClick method for determine all necessary points to describe the shape of (invisible) selection area. But I can't figure out how to approach to this task at all.

First I need to build bounding box of my shape of selection to exclude all outer objects to get rid of unnecessary iterations. How it to do?

Could you give a help?

I think you should create a virtual shape of your desired selection, then check it's overlapping with other shapes and add them to selection. I think the following post could be useful for you - a shape on top of another
