I am looking for a nengo_DL function that would take a tensor_layer as input and return the height and width. I have tried tensor.get_shape().as_list() but this is not working in nengo_dl.

# Nengo_DL function

TensorNodes need to return a `tf.Tensor`

, whereas `tensor.get_shape().as_list()`

returns a list. What you want is `tf.shape(tensor)`

, which will return a `tf.Tensor`

containing the shape.

To be clear, I’m assuming that what you’re trying to do is write a `TensorNode`

(or `tensor_layer`

) that returns the shape of its input. If you just want to know what the shape of a tensor is, then `tensor.get_shape()`

will work as well.

I tried using the tensor.get_shape(), however it is causing an error that says "function object has no attribute get_shape. What would be causing this? Know any fixes?

That means that your `tensor`

object is not a `tf.Tensor`

. You can check the type of a Python variable using `print(type(tensor))`

.
