Hi, it's clear now,

When I pick/select the line created above, sometimes it give the correct selectionID using the OpenglView::select() in GLC_player, sometimes the selectionID is not correct. Could you please give some details how to use GLC_3DViewCollection for the geometries I want to select? Thanks.

It seems that there is no problem in your code. I think that the problem com from anti-aliasing...

In GLC_lib, the selection of object is done by rendering the scene off-screen with specific color for each 3DViewInstance.
It's work fine with solid object. But, if anti-aliasing is on, the color of wire object is blended with the background color (Black) and border of a white wire become grey :? So the grey color is decoded and a wrong id is return.
As I know, when using Qt4 in OpenGL application, there is two way to activate anti-aliasing :
    With the graphic driver
    Within the application
If you use the first one you have to deactivate it. But the render will be aliased :(
If you use the second one, you just have to deactivate it in your code when you render in selection mode.
Something like that in the paintGl method:
      if (!GLC_State::isInSelectionMode()) glEnable(GL_MULTISAMPLE);
      else glDisable(GL_MULTISAMPLE);
