LAnnotation::CopyToClipboard

#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LAnnotation::CopyToClipboard(uFormat=ANNFMT_XML, bSelected=FALSE, bEmpty=FALSE, fCheckMenu=FALSE)

Copies the annotation object to the Windows clipboard in either the native format or WMF format.

Parameters

L_UINT uFormat

Format for the annotation data. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
ANNFMT_WMF Use the Windows WMF format.
ANNFMT_XML Use the XML format. This is the default value.

L_BOOL bSelected

Flag that indicates whether to copy all selected objects, or just the specified object. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
TRUE Copy all objects that have the selected property set to TRUE. For getting and setting the selected property, use the LAnnContainer::GetSelectItems and LAnnotation::SetSelected functions.
FALSE Copy only the specified object.

L_BOOL bEmpty

Flag that indicates whether to empty the clipboard prior to copying the annotation data to it. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
TRUE Empty the clipboard before copying data to it.
FALSE Add to the existing data on the clipboard.

L_BOOL fCheckMenu

Flag that indicates whether check the automation menu to see if ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_COPY has been checked. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
TRUE Check the automation menu to see if ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_COPY has been checked for the specified object. Only those objects with ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_COPY checked will be copied.
FALSE Do not check the automation menu to see if ANNAUTOTEXT_MENU_COPY has been checked for the specified object. The copied objects are determined by fSelected only.

Returns

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

Comments

Use the WMF format only for copying for use in another application.

If the annotation object is a container, then to retain scaling and positioning information, this function will always copy the root container, along with the specified object or selected objects. Use the bSelected parameter as follows:

To copy only selected objects in a container, set bSelected to TRUE.

To copy all objects in a container, set bSelected to FALSE.
