Description

DON'T USE THIS ANYMORE. Switch over to GetTypeN.

Returns the type index of the referenced object.

A complete listing of supported object types may be found in the Appendix.

FUNCTION GetType(
h  :HANDLE) : INTEGER;
def vs.GetType(h):
    return INTEGER

Parameters

h HANDLE Handle to object.

Return Value

Returns the node type of the referenced object.
