ArcPy empty shape?

I have a small script to search through a featureclass and copy and entire row to another featureclass. Its working well, in that I get all of the attributes for the row, but there is no geometry for the layer and no shapes appear. It is a POLYLINE layer and all of my shape_lengths = 0

    import arcpy
from arcpy import env

arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True

env.workspace = r"C:\temp\gamma\Gamma_Survey_With_Lines.gdb"

Detector_Line = env.workspace + "/Detector_Line"

lyr2Explode = arcpy.CreateFeatureclass_management(env.workspace, "CopyofDetectorLine", "POLYLINE",Detector_Line,"DISABLED","DISABLED",Detector_Line)

cur = arcpy.InsertCursor(lyr2Explode)

field = "GlobalID"
cursor = arcpy.SearchCursor(Detector_Line)
for row in cursor:
#print(row.getValue(field))
globalid = row.getValue(field)
arcpy.SelectLayerByAttribute_management("GammaDetectionLocation1", "NEW_SELECTION", "SourceTrack = '" + globalid + "'")
if(count == 0):
print count
feat = cur.newRow()
feat.shape = row.Shape
feat.setValue("UserID","doodie")
cur.insertRow(feat)


It looks like the fields are identical between the two layers. I'd try listing all fields and adding the "SHAPE@" token to make sure you snag the geometry.

Maybe something like this:

#Fields list
#Get all fields
flds = [f.name for f in ListFields (Detector_Line)]
flds += ["SHAPE@"]

with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(Detector_Line, flds) as sCur:
with arcpy.da.InsertCursor(lyr2Explode, flds) as iCur:
for row in sCur:
print(row[17])
globalid = row[17]
arcpy.SelectLayerByAttribute_management("GammaDetectionLocation1", "NEW_SELECTION", "SourceTrack = '" + globalid + "'")
if(count == 0):
print count
iCur.insertRow(row)


if there's trouble with the OID field you can modify it as such:

oidFld = arcpy.Describe (Detector_Line).OIDFieldName
flds = [f.name for f in ListFields (Detector_Line) if f.name != oidFld]
...

• The shape field was there, not sure what the issue is. I have reworked the code, updated above, to apply the row.Shape, but now I must set each attribute individually. Not a bad thing, but a bit more tedious. You would think "*" would bring over everything, but the geometry is empty still. – ericoneal Sep 23 '15 at 13:44
• Did you give my method a shot? The SHAPE@ token is different from the shape field name. See data access search cursor help. – Emil Brundage Sep 23 '15 at 15:14
• Sorry, yes I did, it made no difference. – ericoneal Sep 23 '15 at 15:45
