Find type of named group
on Oct 8, 2018 at 3:04:03 pm


I'm making a script which can loop through the vector group of a shape layer, to find out what is inside it.

I can find out if a property is a named group with this if statement:

if (group.propertyType==PropertyType.NAMED_GROUP)

But I would like to know if it is a rectangle or ellipse or something else. Basically I want to check the type to its match name. Those on this list:

Any way to do that?
