This function allow us to change the render layer index of a dgs element.

This function will only act on the parent layer.

For example:

  • There is a DGS element in the "center" layer, and this function will change its layer index in the "center" layer.
  • There is a DGS element which has parent, and this function will change its layer index in its parent's Children Table which stores all the children elements of the parent.


bool dgsSetCurrentLayerIndex( element dgsElement, integer index )

DGS OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!
