Good afternoon all Sedona peeps!

This code in the if block never fires even though my comp is surly in the kit:
The else block code always fires.



virtual override int linkEvent(int eType, Link link)
{

  Component cLinked = Sys.app.lookup(link.fromComp)

if (Sys.type(Sys.findKit("myKit").id, link.fromComp) != null)
{
  if (eType == ADDED)
  {
  // when a link is added ... code here never gets run even though the comp is in the kit.
  return 0
}
  else // REMOVED
  {
      // also when a link is deleted ... code here never gets run even though the comp is in the kit.
      return 0
  }
  }
  else
  // code here always runs which prints a debug message to stdout.
  return 0
}

link.fromComp id represents a component Id.
Sys.type(...) method needs to be fed the typeId of that component.
You could try link.fromComp.type.id

But that won't achieve what you want either. For example link.fromComp.type.id might be returning an id of 1. Your kit has a component with an id of 1. But so do other kits in the schema. So your call to Sys.type(...) method may return a value even if the link is not from a component in your kit.

You could perhaps try
if ( Sys.findKit("myKit").id == link.fromComp.type.kit.id

I got a kit compile error of:

unknown field: short.type

I assumed I had to cast:

((Component)link.fromComp).type.kit.id

... but I got:

Expr type short cannot be cast as sys::Component

So I tried a new approach:

Kit.type(link.fromComp).kit.id

which yielded:

Cannot call instance method sys::Kit.type in static context.

I am at my whit's end.

Once I had lost all my whits ... I figured it out:

if (Sys.findKit("myKit").id == cLinked.type.kit.id)
