#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LAnnotation::CopyToClipboard(uFormat=ANNFMT_XML, bSelected=FALSE, bEmpty=FALSE, fCheckMenu=FALSE)

L_UINT uFormat;

format for the annotation data

L_BOOL bSelected;

flag that indicates whether to copy all selected objects, or just the specified object

L_BOOL bEmpty;

flag that indicates whether to empty the clipboard prior to copying the annotation data to it.

L_BOOL fCheckMenu;

flag that indicates whether to check the automation menu

  ANNFMT_XML Use the XML format.  This is the default value.
bSelected Flag that indicates whether to copy all selected objects, or just the specified object. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Copy all objects that have the selected property set to TRUE. For getting and setting the selected property, use the LAnnContainer::GetSelectItems and LAnnotation::SetSelected functions.
  FALSE Copy only the specified object.
bEmpty Flag that indicates whether to empty the clipboard prior to copying the annotation data to it. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Empty the clipboard before copying data to it.
  FALSE Add to the existing data on the clipboard.
fCheckMenu Flag that indicates whether check the automation menu to see if ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_COPY has been checked. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Check the automation menu to see if ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_COPY has been checked for the specified object. Only those objects with ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_COPY checked will be copied.
  FALSE Do not check the automation menu to see if ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_COPY has been checked for the specified object. The copied objects are determined by fSelected only.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

Use the WMF format only for copying for use in another application.

If the annotation object is a container, then to retain scaling and positioning information, this function will always copy the root container, along with the specified object or selected objects. Use the bSelected parameter as follows:

To copy only selected objects in a container, set bSelected to TRUE.

To copy all objects in a container, set bSelected to FALSE.
