Description

Returns a handle to the parent container object of the referenced object. If the object does not have a container, a handle to the objects' layer will be returned.
FUNCTION GetParent(
h  :HANDLE) : HANDLE;
def vs.GetParent(h):
    return HANDLE

Parameters

h HANDLE Handle to object.

Return Value

Returns a HANDLE to the parent object or layer.

Remarks

This is from the SDK documentation for ParentObject():

Returns the "parent" of h, that is, h's immediate owner. For most objects, this is the layer they are in; for an object in a container, it is its enclosing container; for a layer, it is the drawing header. The drawing header and any symbol definitions which are not in any folder have no parent; calling ParentObject on them will return nil.
