LAYLOCKFADECTL (System Variable)


Controls the amount of fading for objects on locked layers.

Type: Integer
Saved in: Registry
Initial value: 50

Fades the objects on locked layers to contrast them with objects on unlocked layers and reduces the visual complexity of a drawing. Objects on locked layers are still visible for reference and for object snapping.

The range for controlling the fading for objects on locked layers is from -90 to 90.


Locked layers are not faded


When the value is positive, controls the percent of fading up to 90 percent


When the value is negative, locked layers are not faded, but the value is saved for switching to that value by changing the sign

Note The fading value is limited to 90 percent to avoid confusion with layers that are turned off or frozen.
