Collecting names from "SHOW" dropdown menu

Dear ones!
Do any of you know how to collect the names of nodes that are displayed in the "SHOW" window dropped down in the viewport menu by  mel or pymel?

Under the Select>AllByType you can see the type listing, and with EchoAllCommands you can get the mel analogue which can be injected into py.

SelectAllNURBSSurfaces;
select -r `listTransforms "-type nurbsSurface"`;
ls -selection -type "transform";
// Result: nurbsSphere1 nurbsSphere3 nurbsSphere2 nurbsSphere4 //

Thank you for your answer!
Maybe my English is not perfect, but I don't want to list objects of a given type from the scene, but just to list the types of objects that appear in the SHOW menu.

I can ask the nurbsCurves checkbox state by
modelEditor -q -nurbsCurves modelPanel4;
// Result: 1 //


but how to ask - which of the types in the list have status 1 to have Result e.g:
nurbsCurves, nCloths, motionTrails, greasePencils ...
...and so on

You might be looking for

modelEditor -q -nurbsSurfaces modelPanel4;
modelEditor -e -nurbsSurfaces false modelPanel4;
modelEditor -q -nurbsSurfaces modelPanel4;

Look up into command reference for modelEditor, there's also Py version.

Nope, because it returns me the state of "nurbsSurfaces" checkbox , not the name of its flag.

Believe me, if it were so easy, I wouldn't ask 🙂 I am currently analyzing the core Maya scripts to find .mel which builds the viewport menus 🙂
Thanks anyway 🙂

 Turn on echo all commands to find the panel you need. Command reference is your friend there.

oh ... and it looks promising 🙂

import maya.cmds as cmds
list = cmds.popupMenu("MainPane|viewPanes|modelPanel1|menu14",q=1,ia=1) # name of window
for obj in list:
    if 'show' in obj:
        if 'All' in obj or 'None' in obj:pass
        else:print obj[4].lower()+obj[5:-4]

 It works FINE !!!! 
GREAT!!!
