PCB API Types reference

Created: May 13, 2013 | Updated: November 15, 2016

Note: The Altium Designer SDK is currently in the Beta phase and therefore evolving along with its documentation. This reference document, derived from the Altium Designer RTL documentation, is a work in progress and includes some aspects that are different to the new SDK.

The enumerated types are used for many of the PCB object interfaces methods which are covered in this section.
For example the IPCB_Board interface has a LayerIsUsed [L : TLayer] : Boolean property. You can use this Enumerated Types section below to check what the range is for the TLayer type.
