LAutomation::Create

#include "ltwrappr.h"

L_INT LAutomation::Create(nMode, dwFlags=0);

Creates an automation handle.

Parameters

AUTOMATIONMODE nMode

An integer value that represents the automation mode to use when creating the automation handle. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
AUTOMATION_MODE_PAINT Creates an automation handle for digital paint.
AUTOMATION_MODE_VECTOR Creates an automation handle for Vectors.

L_UINT32 dwFlags

Reserved for future use. Use 0.

Returns

Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

LAutomation::Initialize must be called before calling this function.

If vector viewing support is unlocked using L_SUPPORT_VECTOR_VIEW, this function will return ERROR_VECTOR_LOCKED, if nMode is set to AUTOMATION_MODE_VECTOR.
