Layer Control
First event up in the Tip Olympics is layer control. Everyone has a better way of doing layers. That?s what makes them great?they?re so adaptable. Of course, that means you need to be able to track them. That brings us to Get Object Color Relationship (Tip #1968) from Walt Bedinger. This utility lets you check the color and layer relationship for entity objects. After loading the function, type Getcolor at the Command prompt and select an object in the drawing. A prompt appears with the object?s color and layer assignments. This is a friendly function that lets you know if a color assignment is by block, layer, or the object. It also clearly demonstrates how the color code and layer name system are used in entity data lists.
