Duplicate Method

Applies to

Summary

Inserts a copy of the shape at new location.

Syntax

Object.Duplicate (
   method As QfTransformType,
   v As Point,
  [angle As Double],
  [nCopies As Long]
) As ShapeRange

Parameters

method
[in, optional] QfTransformType
v
[in, optional] Point
angle
[in, optional] Double
nCopies
[in, optional] Long

Remarks

Geometric transformations available with copy (duplicate) operation are:

With displacement and rotation transformations the nCopies parameter specifies the number of copies. It means that copying operation will be performed several times, each time being applied to the previous result. Default value is nCopies = 1.

The following table clarifies the parameters meaning with various transformation types:

Transformation Type

Method parameter as QfTransformType constant

V parameter

Angle parameter

Displacement

qfShift

Displacement vector

N/A

Rotation

qfRotation

The center of rotation

The rotation angle in radians

Symmetry

qfMirror

Coordinates of any point on the symmetry line

The angle (in radians) between the horizontal axis and the symmetry line.

The V parameter if omitted is defaulted to the origin (0, 0), and Angle parameter  - to zero.
