CREATE_COPYBUFFER

CREATE_COPYBUFFER creates an empty copy buffer object.

Syntax

leo-grammar
CC "Core" CREATE_COPYBUFFER index:intValue

#-->RESULT ecode:intValue
CC "Core" CREATE_COPYBUFFER index:intValue

#-->RESULT ecode:intValue

Parameters

  • index (intValue) -

Returns

  • ecode (intValue) - Contains the error code -1 if a copy buffer with this ID already exists or is 0 in case of success; -1 is used to indicate, that it is no standard errorcode.

Details

This copy buffer object can be used to copy objects and relations from one model to another or within a model.

To fill a copy buffer, use the FILL_COPYBUFFER command with the same index you passed to the create function.

If you don't need a copybuffer anymore, make sure to call DELETE_COPYBUFFER with the same index.
