    I'm not able to get the layer and datatype correct out of my layout.
    The values do not match the current situation, some are correct other wrong.

    from pya import *

    lv = pya.Application.instance().main_window().current_view()
    layout = lv.active_cellview().layout()

    sel_layers = lv.selected_layers()
    if len(sel_layers) == 0:
    print("No Layer selected")

    for l in sel_layers:
    a = l.current()
    li = a.layer_index()
    myLayer = layout.layer(li,0)
    info = layout.get_info(myLayer)
    print(, info.layer, info.datatype)

    Hi Andy,

    This should be sufficient:

    for l in sel_layers:
      info = layout.get_info(l.current().layer_index())
      print(, info.layer, info.datatype)

    BTW: This Forum supports Markdown. So you can format source code using four spaces as indent. For Python this is mandatory - otherwise I can only guess the code structure.
