virtual L_INT LVectorWindow::Free(L_VOID)

Frees the memory allocated for the vector data.


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


Call this function to free the memory allocated for the vector data. This function should be called when your program no longer needs the vector data. If the vector was allocated in disk memory, this function deletes the temporary file. If the vector has a palette, it will be deleted. After this function returns, the internal vector handle will be invalidated.

Call this function to remove a vector from an LVectorWindow object. Doing this will cause the LVectorWindow object to be painted with the LVectorWindow background color.

Note: You do not have to call the Free function before destroying an LVectorWindow object. The class object will automatically free the vector when it is destroyed.

Note: This function is available from the parent class (LVectorBase), and is not explicitly defined in the LVectorWindow class.
