CopyMetaFile info  Overview  Group

The CopyMetaFile function copies the content of a Windows-format metafile to the specified file.

This function is provided for compatibility with 16-bit versions of Windows. Win32-based applications should use the CopyEnhMetaFile function.

HMETAFILE CopyMetaFile(

    HMETAFILE hmfSrc,

// handle to a Windows-format metafile

    LPCTSTR lpszFile 

// pointer to a filename string

   );

Parameters

hmfSrc
Identifies the source Windows-format metafile.
lpszFile
Points to the name of the destination file. If this parameter is NULL, the source metafile is copied to memory.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle to the copy of the Windows-format metafile.

If the function fails, the return value is NULL. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

The CopyMetaFile function supports only applications designed for Windows version 3.x. It does not record or play back the new graphics device interface functions, such as PolyBezier.

Where text arguments must use Unicode characters, use this function as a wide-character function. Where text arguments must use characters from the Windows 3.x character set, use this function as an ANSI function.

When the application no longer needs the Windows-format metafile handle, it should delete the handle by calling the DeleteMetaFile function.
