Hello there, somebody would know how can I enable a specific component selection mode? Just like right-click + edge (upward).

thanks a lot.

```mel

doMenuComponentSelectionExt("pCube1", "meshComponents", 0);

doMenuComponentSelectionExt("pCube1", "edge", 0);

doMenuComponentSelectionExt("pCube1", "facet", 0);

doMenuComponentSelectionExt("pCube1", "vertex", 0);

```

Sorry for the delay! Some emails from groups are going to spam..
I tried it but I received: // Error: line 1: Cannot find procedure "doMenuComponentSelectionExt". //
Any suggestion? thanks a lot!
