Hi,

 

I know acCurDb.Clayer will give the ObjectId of active layer but friends how to get the current layer name.

 

This may be really silly but i had spent lot of time to find and can't get a good solution. Please help....

 

Regards,

Shijith

 

 

If you want to give just current layer name try this code as well

 [CommandMethod("curlayer")]
public void DisplayCurrLayerName()
{
MessageBox.Show(Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.GetSystemVariable("clayer").ToString());
}

Hi,

 

open the object for the ObjectID, that resulting type is a LayerTableRecord, and now you have access tp a property "Name" and that is the layername.
