Description

Function GetLayer returns a handle to the layer of the referenced object.
FUNCTION GetLayer(
h  :HANDLE) : HANDLE;
def vs.GetLayer(h):
    return HANDLE

Parameters

h HANDLE Handle to object.

Remarks

Care should be taken when using this call in the code for an object. If an object is cut-n-pasted or inserted from the object browser, it has to regenerate before it is actually in a layer, in which case GetLayer(h) will return a nil handle. So always check that you have a valid handle before proceeding. (This may have been fixed -- ask Jeff Koppi about this.)

Example

VectorScript

LayerHandle:=GetLayer(ObjHd);

Python

LayerHandle = vs.GetLayer(ObjHd)
