Export all components of given type from manifold map file

You may sometime need to export all the components of given type so they can be used in another GIS environment. Here goes a script that does exactly this. The example exports all the drawings and tables to either shp or xls:

using Manifold.Interop.Scripts;
using M = Manifold.Interop;

class Script {
	static void Main() {
		//Some setup stuff first
        string exportFld = "H:\\ExportedComponents\\";

        M.Application mApp = Context.Application;
        M.Document mDoc = (M.Document)mApp.ActiveDocument;
        M.ComponentSet mCompSet = mDoc.ComponentSet;

        //Exporters
        M.ExportShp shpExporter = (M.ExportShp)mApp.NewExport("SHP");
        shpExporter.ConvertPolicy = M.ConvertPolicy.ConvertAll;

        M.ExportXls xlsExporter = (M.ExportXls)mApp.NewExport("XLS");
        xlsExporter.ConvertPolicy = M.ConvertPolicy.ConvertAll;

       //iterate through all components
        for (int i = 0; i < mCompSet.Count; i++ )
        {
            mApp.StatusText = "Reading component " + i.ToString() + " of " + mCompSet.Count;

            switch (mCompSet[i].Type)
            {
                case M.ComponentType.ComponentDrawing:

                    shpExporter.Export(mCompSet[i], exportFld + mCompSet[i].Name + shpExporter.DefaultExtension, M.ConvertPrompt.PromptNone);

                    break;

                case M.ComponentType.ComponentTable:

                    xlsExporter.Export(mCompSet[i], exportFld + mCompSet[i].Name + xlsExporter.DefaultExtension, M.ConvertPrompt.PromptNone);
                    break;
            }
        }

        mApp.StatusText = "";
        mApp.MessageBox("Done!", "Info");
	}
}
