Appendix D - Vectorworks Object Types and Subtypes

The numeric types in the table below are useful for identifying what type of object is referenced by a handle. The function GetTypeN(h) will return one of these numeric types. The Criteria values in the table below are used in search criteria statements. They are used along with the criteria T= to search for objects of a specific type. For example, the following statement will count the number of rectangles in the active document:

Message(Count(T=RECT));
