Getting an Objects Name with Python

(TankCoder) #1

Hey all,

I have a slight problem. I have an object and I have a script connected to this object with an always sensor. Now, what I need is for this script to get the name of the Object of which it is connected to. Is this possible?

object.getName() returns the name. Beware, the first two characters refer to the objects type. A mesh would return “MEname” an actual object returns “OBname”. If you only need the name and not the type, you can use object.getName()[2:]
