Default Poly selection

I've used XSI quite a bit and there was a shortcut, where you could select a poly face by "painting" accross the front of an object and selecting those front faces while leaving any poly faces in back unselected.

I seem to remeber Maya has something along those line for selecting polys. Does anyone know what that shortcut is?
Thanks,

T
