Calling data from another layer
is there a way to call datas from another layer?
ex. to draw in the active layer, I'd like to get the
xvalue of a point from
thinking roboFab, there should be a
RLayermethod or something of that sort, but I can't find one.
That would be something for UFO3 I believe.
Is that right Frederik? Any idea if/when UFO3 will be supported in RF?
you can access other layers easily with:
glyph = CurrentGlyph() backgroundLayerGlyph = glyph.getLayer("background")
This returns the glyph object of a specific layer. If the layer doesn't exist a new layer with the provided name will be created.
UFO3 will not be embedded in the next release, but likely be in the next-next release (however I don't want to make any promises)
Thanks, that's what I was looking for!
