AFAIK getvar is not case-sensitive.

I think I explained poorly.
If I use:
Code: [Select]
(getvar "CLAYER") "Abcd")
and the layer name is all in caps (ABCD) I have to make another line
Code: [Select]
(getvar "CLAYER") "ABCD")
in order to get both of them.
But if there is another situation, aBcd, I have to add another line.
That's why I tried to ignore or clean the casing for the result of getvar "CLAYER". Or to find another method.

Code: [Select]
(strcase (getvar 'clayer))

If you are using wcmatch, I use this helper function to avoid case problems

Code: [Select]
;;;==========================================================
;;; wcmatch with fix on case
;;;==========================================================
(defun wcmatch_NoCase (string pattern)
  (wcmatch (strcase string) (strcase pattern))
)
