Layer name wildcard

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find objects in layers whose name contains (for example) "250"

Why does this work for classes:

SelectObj(C='*250*');

but wildcard search doesn't work for layers:

SelectObj(L='*250*');

:confused:

Probably because classes and layers are in another internal list. Layers have their own internal list, classes and all other objects are in the 'main' object list.

What you could do is first find all layers, filter out those that doesn't fit your search criteria, then create your search criteria based on that and then do the selection. I know this will be more work...
