L_LTVKRN_API L_INT L_VecCopyFromClipboard(hWnd, pVector, dwFlags)

Copies vector data from the clipboard to the specified vector handle. This function is available in the LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Pro Toolkit.



Handle to the active window.


Pointer to the vector handle to be updated with the vector data from the clipboard. This function will allocate the storage to hold the new vector image.

L_UINT32 dwFlags

Flag that indicates the behavior of the copy process. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
0 Copy the entire vector handle from the source vector to the destination vector.
VECTOR_FLAGS_SELECTED_ONLY Copy only selected objects from the source vector to the destination vector.
VECTOR_FLAGS_REPLACE Empty the destination vector before copying.
VECTOR_FLAGS_RENAME_DUPLICATES Renames duplicate layer names if found. This flag is only valid when VECTOR_FLAGS_REPLACE is not specified. The toolkit will add a suffix (0, 1, 2, etc) to the layer name if duplicated. Checking will be aborted when the suffix value reaches 999 and no unique name can be created.
VECTOR_FLAGS_COPY_INTO_ACTIVE_LAYER Copies objects and layers into the active layer of the destination vector.
VECTOR_FLAGS_COPY_LAYERS_ONLY Copies all layers and objects from the source vector to the destination vector. Transformation, camera, viewport and all other properties of the destination vector will not be effected.


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


This function will not remove the vector data from the clipboard.

To determine whether valid vector data is on the clipboard, call L_VecClipboardReady.

To copy vector data to the clipboard from a vector handle, call L_VecCopyToClipboard.
