virtual L_INT LVectorBase::CopyLayer(pVectorLayerDst, pVectorLayerSrc, dwFlags=0);

Copies the contents of one layer to another.

This function is available in the LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Pro Toolkit.


LVectorLayer * pVectorLayerDst

Pointer to an LVectorLayer object that points to the destination layer. Pass NULL to copy the source vector layer into the active layer.

LVectorLayer * pVectorLayerSrc

Pointer to an LVectorLayer object that points to the source layer. This parameter cannot be NULL.

L_UINT32 dwFlags

Flag that indicates whether or not to empty the destination layer before copying. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
0 Do not empty the destination layer before copying.
VECTOR_FLAGS_REPLACE Empty the destination layer before copying.


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


The destination layer can be in the same vector handle as the source layer, or it can be in a different vector handle.

An LVectorLayer object can be obtained by calling LVectorBase::EnumLayers, LVectorBase::GetLayerByName or LVectorBase::GetLayerByIndex.

This example will copy the first layer (and objects) from a vector into the active layer of pVector.
