TRUE to this property, the layer is turned on. If you input a value of FALSE, the layer is turned off.To turn layers on and off, use the LayerOn property. If you input a value of
This example creates a new layer, adds a circle to the layer, then turns off the layer so that the circle is no longer visible.
' Create a circle
Dim circleObj As AcadCircle
Dim center(0 To 2) As Double
Dim radius As Double
center(0) = 2: center(1) = 2: center(2) = 0
radius = 1
Set circleObj = ThisDrawing.ModelSpace. _
' Create a new layer called "ABC"
Dim layerObj As AcadLayer
Set layerObj = ThisDrawing.Layers.Add("ABC")
' Assign the circle to the "ABC" layer
circleObj.Layer = "ABC"
' Turn off layer "ABC"
layerObj.LayerOn = False
