All objects have an associated layer. The document always contains at least one layer (layer 0). As with linetypes, you can specify a layer for an object. If you don't specify a layer, the current active layer is used for a new object. If a layer is specified for an object, the current active layer is ignored. Use the ActiveLayer property to set or query the current active layer.

Each layer has associated properties that can be set and queried through the Layer object.
