Return the PrimType on selected nodes ?

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me how to return the primType on any selected node in Python? I saw the hou.primType() in the docs but not sure how to use it on selection.

What I want is for example to select some curves or geometry and the script to return what is the  prim type  of each selected node (NURBS, Bezier,Polygon ,Mesh,NURBSSurface, etc)

Thank you!

Anyway I think I figured it out .If there is another way I will be happy to see it.

def primType():
  sel = hou.selectedNodes()
  nodes = []
  types = []
  for node in sel:
    prim = node.geometry().prims()
    for i in prim:
  return dict(zip(nodes,types))
