Count Layer issue

I'm curious if anyone else is having trouble calling the "CountLayers" function.

local LayerNumber = moho.layer:CountLayers()

returns "CountLayers" is nill, despite the fact that there are several child layers to the selected group. This might be a bug, but I need some confirmation here.

The CountLayers function fails to work for group or bone layers, but appears to work for switch layers. I'm thinking this is a glitch now.

it's not "moho.layer" -- you need to recast the selected layer as a group


Code: Select all

	local ctLayer
	local layer = moho:LayerAsGroup(moho.layer)

	if layer == nil then
--		error
		ctLayer =  layer:CountLayers()
is the glitch that switch "works" as not a group type!?

If you had previously done moho:LayerAsSwitch(moho.layer) it will be a proper group for counting layers. Otherwise the only bug would be switch layers always cast as group layers, which shouldn't harm anything.
