duplicate/delete layers

Recommended Posts

To duplicate a design layer: create the new layer, then go back to the old layer, SelectAll, and copy everything, then go to the new layer and paste in place.



vs.Layer('New Layer Name')

vs.Layer('Old Layer Name')


vs.DoMenuTextByName('Copy', 0)

vs.Layer('New Layer Name')

vs.DoMenuTextByName('Paste In Place', 0)


You may need to check my syntax. I didn't.

Yes you can delete layers.  Sorry this is VS instead of Python.


Procedure Test;

VAR	H1: Handle;




You probably want to get fancier and do error checking.  Make sure you are not trying to delete the last layer. Make sure that the layer you are trying to delete is not the First Layer. You may also want to consider if you are using the active layer if you really want to change the active layer to the first layer or if you want to do the work to set the next or previous layer to be active instead.
