Restrict Command based on Layer image level

I have several layers that show options for a single piece. Some of the options however may not be used unless one of the other options has already been used (meaning the layer has been activated and is on the image level that displays the option.jpg).

I want to restrict the command to change the layer of some of these until the first option is on the right layer level.

In the properties of the Restrict Command it asks for Restrict when properties match: I don’t know what format/or how to write the property that the Layer exposes.

Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like what you want is _Name = , e.g., Hits_Name = 4, or something like that.

You should look at the documentation for the layer trait.

This is what I have and I don’t know why it isn’t working:
Restricted Commands

The Layer has 3 levels, level 1 has no image to display.
I have the restricted command restricting 3 key strokes based on this statement: Layer_ChangePlayer=1

I have tried it with the Restricted Command below and above the Layer in the prototype definitions list.

Maybe what you want is ChangePlayer_Level = 1

Ok I re-read the sticky above and realized that the dynamic properties needed to be above the layer and the layer needed to be above the restricted command. it works now. Thanks for your help.
