Read this post about user selection and wonder about progress on exposing the selected transaction(s) or enabling transaction(s) selection by extensions.

    It can be done, just not via the API. My extension total_selected_transactions is an example of this. You can get from my site:

    …and GitHub

    … PS…. The first ~2700 lines (ish) are common code (to all my Python extensions). The code after this is what you need. Either as—is or you will need to convert to Java language (but will be roughly the same).

    thanks for your reply - I'll check out your script.

    Got to say I find it quite extraordinary that there isn't an offical API for this - it seems such a fundamental and obvious thing that pretty much any developer is going to want at some point, it's a bizarre and baffling ommision.
