if type does not subclass from Component or GameObject (eg. Mesh or ScriptableObject) only SelectionMode.ExcludePrefab and SelectionMode.Editable are supported.

                SelectionMode.Editable | SelectionMode.TopLevel);

for (var obj in activeGOs) var activeGO = obj as GameObject; activeGO.SetActive(!activeGO.activeSelf); } }
