evaluating display flag in OBJ level


Recommended Posts


I know how to check display flag in sop level by python, but how can I do in obj level

I want to write something like this so it checks box 1 display status and apply that status to box 2,

import hou
box1 = hou.node('/obj/box1')
box2 = hou.node('/obj/box2')
box1.setDisplayFlag("EVALUATE DISPLAY FLAG OF BOX2")

Thanks to replay, although I think I wasn't clear enough,

I know about boolean things (..at least:D )

but I want to know how to get the display flag status of a node  and store it's value in a variable then pass it to another node's display flag

Thats exactly my problem, I get this error

 The attempted operation failed.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "hou.session", line 4, in <module>
AttributeError: 'ObjNode' object has no attribute 'getDisplayFlag'
