In my panel I have 3 buttons you can press. Each one will change the File format type to a different setting. I would like to add text above the buttons that displays "Current Selection:" and then what ever setting that is currently selected (for the File Format).

Change the Cube to what ever setting that is currently selected/active

By looking at the template I know this is possible, because you can add the name of the currently selected object.

row.label(text="Current Selection: " + obj.name)

I know the obj is related to the object in the scene but I need to know how to change it so I can display the File format type instead.

I just don't know the proper context to make it work for me.

After playing around with it, I think it would be easier just to add this:

scene = context.scene
view = scene.view_settings
row.prop(view, "view_transform")

Not only do we get the options we want but we can see which is active.

new layout

Alternatively, as brockmann has said, you can use:

layout.prop(view, "view_transform", expand=True)

which would give you this -

    $\begingroup$ You can pass expand=True to get all options at once: row.prop(view, "view_transform", expand=True). $\endgroup$
