Save all Objects on a Layer then delete from doc

I want to save all objects to a seperate file which are on a certain layer.

Layer: Small_Stuff
-> select objects from layer
-> save selected objects in seperate file called "original_document_Small_Stuff.c4d"
-> delete all objects from original_document.c4d (active)

would be nice if no dialog opens and the new document rests besides the org document.

I researched a bit and found this but as always the sdk confuses me more than it helps

thanks in advance.

got it

code without defs

the important stuff is within else:

    doc = GetActiveDocument()   
    layer_not_hit = layer_init ("Not Seen", c4d.Vector(0.5,0,0), True)   
    all_objects = get_object_list(doc, layer_not_hit)       
    notseen_obj_list = all_objects['polygon_obj_list']       
    if not notseen_obj_list:   
        c4d.gui.MessageDialog("No Objects on Layer: " + layer_not_hit.GetName())   
        unseenfile = c4d.documents.IsolateObjects(doc, notseen_obj_list)   
        print doc.GetDocumentName()   
        orgname = doc.GetDocumentName()   
        orgname = orgname[ :-4 ]   
        print orgname   
        newname = orgname+"_"+layer_not_hit.GetName()   
        print newname   
        if c4d.documents.SaveDocument(unseenfile, newname, c4d.SAVEDOCUMENTFLAGS_DONTADDTORECENTLIST, format=c4d.FORMAT_C4DEXPORT) :   
            for unseenobject in notseen_obj_list:   
               print "Removing: ", unseenobject.GetName()   
        c4d.CallCommand(12098) # save cleaned document   

kind regards

SaveDocument returns false when the file path is not valid, thats why it shows the save as dialog. It returns True when the file path is valid and just saves the file with no dialog:

c4d.documents.SaveDocument(unseenfile, "/Users/bonsak/Desktop/test.c4d", c4d.SAVEDOCUMENTFLAGS_DONTADDTORECENTLIST, format=c4d.FORMAT_C4DEXPORT)
