Hi
I am trying to build a custom tool using models. I want this tool to fire up and prompt for a feature input. I basically want the user to then select a feature using the select tool.

Is it possible using models? If so, can anyone please tell me how to do this?

Thanks.

You just create a Model with your input features as a model parameter. When you run the tool with some features selected, it will process only the selected features. If no feature is selected then it will process all features. You don't need to prompt the user to select. All model tools works the above way.
