# Command Block Area Selection

With a command block, you can specify an x,y,and z coordinate, as well as a radius around it for the command to apply to, like saying /testfor @p[3,65,27,r=10]

But I'm wondering, can you leave out one of the coordinates, to make a cylindrical area of application, rather than a spherical? Like, if you leave out the Y coordinate, will it still affect people with the same X and Z, no matter how high up or down?

Yes that is what I mean, so tht the area of effect will work for any value of Y, which would look like a vertical line, but since a radius is specified, it would be like a cylinder with no maximum and minimum height.

Does this actually work, though?

You mean `testfor @p[x=3,y=65,z=27,r=10]` right??
then you would instead write:`testfor @p[x=3,z=27,r=10] `

That's exactly what he means

Someone, just go check the wiki...

No, you can't. Even IF it works, it will think you only specified the X and Y coordinates. That would just break the game.

I believe that you can leave some coordinates blank and it will TP you in a straight line.

I think that is true, but as for making it as a cylinder, I doubt you can do that, sorry
