Here’s a useful snippet I had the chance to use recently. I can’t remember why, but I know it did make my life easier, as Python tends to do.
|ftr = r"C://Some//Arb//Folder//work.gdb//ftr"|
|subs = arcpy.da.ListSubtypes(ftr)|
|for k, v in subs.iteritems():|
|print k, v['Name']|
ListSubtypes returns a dictionary of the properties of that subtype. In this instance, I’ve used the Name key to print out the associated name for a particular subtype.
