I want to create a small Script that works with any object, but I need to create a new Vertex group of the selected vertices with Python

Mesh before running the script Mesh after running the script

import bpy

# Modeling
bpy.ops.mesh.select_mode(use_extend=False, use_expand=False, type='VERT')
{"use_normal_flip":False, "mirror":False}, TRANSFORM_OT_translate={"value": 
(0, 0, 0.5), "orient_type":'GLOBAL', "orient_matrix":((1, 0, 0), (0, 1, 0), 
(0, 0, 1)), "orient_matrix_type":'GLOBAL', "constraint_axis":(False, False, 
True), "mirror":False, "use_proportional_edit":False, 
"proportional_edit_falloff":'SMOOTH', "proportional_size":1, 
"use_proportional_connected":False, "use_proportional_projected":False, 
"snap":False, "snap_target":'CLOSEST', "snap_point":(0, 0, 0), 
"snap_align":False, "snap_normal":(0, 0, 0), "gpencil_strokes":False, 
"cursor_transform":False, "texture_space":False, "remove_on_cancel":False, 
"release_confirm":False, "use_accurate":False})

  • $\begingroup$ @AM Thank you, your help has helped me move forward, now what I don't know is: How could I change the name of the Vertex group? $\endgroup$ – Jhon Oct 21 at 18:53
