How to get Object-Handle referenced by a stamp Object

Recommended Posts


We are using multi stamp objects that reference "drawing" objects to label them. By scripting we want to find from every multi stamp object the object it references. Best would be the corresponding object-handle. With GetRField('Stamp CW', ... ) we can get all defined fields in the database 'Stamp CW'. The field 'LinkWithObject' hold only a text value "linked with object". Unfortunately the field 'LinkWithObject' does not contain no more information about the linked object nor there is no more database fields accessible. Is there an other option to get the object handle of the linked object?

Many thanks in advance,

Finding out how native Vectorworks objects work can be a pain.

If the stamp is really linked to an object, it must have saved the link somewhere.

If lucky, this is in a (hidden) record attached to this object.

I have a menu command available that lists all attached records of an object, including hidden/IFC records if turned on in the settings.
