Description

Returns the type index of the referenced planar or screen object.

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

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

Parameters

h HANDLE Handle to object.

Remarks

Rgm [2012.05.16]: Note that to distinguish a Sheet Layer from a Design Layer, you need to check object variable 154 (ovLayerType), eg. GetObjectVariableInt(layerHd,154). If 1, then it's a Design Layer. If 2, then it's a Sheet Layer. GetTypeN will return 31 (kLayerNode) for both types.

Ptr [2020.09.14]: In Python you can also use "h.type" where h=HANDLE to get the object type integer. Other attributes of handles are:

aux - Get first aux object, or add to an object to the aux list of this one.
locked - Access locked state of the object.
name - Access the name of the object.
next - Access next object in the drawing list.
parent - Access the parent object in the drawing list.
prev - Access previous object in the drawing list.
selected - Access the selection state of the object.
type - Access the type of the object. Get-only.
