Is there a way to check whether Sheet is visible or not?

Post by TomWS »

I'm starting to investigate modifying a gadget so that it only acts on Sheets that have their visibility turned on in the sheets tab.

I can see that CadObject has a isVisible method, but I don't think a Sheet is a CadObject. Is there a way to test the visibility of a Sheet?

Page 56 of "Vectric Lua Interface Documentation v11.pdf" is the page for "CadSheetManager" and there is nothing there for checking visibility,

Yeah, I found that, but, as hope reigns eternal, I was hoping the documentation was lacking, rather than the capability. :(
I'm trying to understand how the Sheets Tab controls visibility, but it's not an attribute that can be checked...
