#include "ltwrappr.h"

L_INT LAutomation::SetCurrentTool(nTool)

Manually sets the current tool in an automation handle without using the toolbar.

Parameters

L_INT nTool

An integer value that represents the tool to set. For more information about tools, tool identifiers and toolbar buttons, refer to the LEADTOOLS Toolbar C++ Class Library help.

Returns

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