query shader name

How to get shader name as return value. I want to switch texture on shaders . For that purpose I require the name of applied shader (ie. lambard1 ) as return so that I can use that name to switch texture.

Depends if it's selected, or you just want to iterate all shaders, or you want to iterate the shaders that are connected to some object.

I just want to select one object and change it's texture with a button click.

listConnections() on an object with give you the connections to the shading groups as well. Using the sets() command you can change these connections.

import maya.cmds as mc
shaders = [mc.listConnections(x + '.surfaceShader')[0] for x in mc.listConnections(mc.ls(sl=True, dag=True, s=True), type='shadingEngine')]
