algorithmic modeling for Rhino


I've been looking around for a while, and so far I can't find any existing component that will tell me the GUID of specific Block objects in Rhino. Since Human has the best block-referencing tools I've seen so far, I was wondering if there was some way to take the "Rhino.DocObjects.InstanceObject" information from the Objects by Selection component, feed it into a magical script box that I don't yet have the knowledge to write myself, and have that output the GUIDs for those specific blocks. If so, I'd love to see an example. ;P

Or actually, now that I'm pondering on it more, it would be fabulous to be able to obtain any geometry's GUID through the Human Objects by Selection > Object Attributes workflow, not just blocks, (though I am specifically interested in blocks.)

The attached script should let you get the GUID from any geometry passing through any of the Human reference workflows. In *most* cases you can just cast a referenced geometry type to GUID by passing it through a GUID parameter - but in the case of natively unsupported types like Blocks a little C# script is necessary. 


Aha, I'm glad that my suspicions were correct. Thank you very much for once again providing fast and flawless help!
