Description

Procedure CopyMode sets the transfer mode for the active design layer. If a sheet layer is active, the procedure has no effect. Transfer Modes

Transfer Mode Index Value
Copy 8
OR 9
XOR 10
BIC 11
Inverse Copy 12
Inverse OR 13
Inverse XOR 14
Inverse BIC 15
The design layer will only be imaged with the transfer mode on systems which support it, like Windows. Setting the transfer mode to a mode other than Copy (i.e. 8, Paint mode), when the current layer transparency percentage is 0, will also automatically change the layer transparency percentage to 50. Similarly, setting the transfer mode to Copy, when the current layer transparency percentage is greater than 0, will also automatically change the layer transparency percentage to 0. This is to approximately preserve the appearance of the layer on systems that don't support transfer modes, like Quartz on the Mac.


PROCEDURE CopyMode(
mode  :INTEGER);
def vs.CopyMode(mode):
    return None

Parameters

mode INTEGER Mode index value.

Remarks

Sets the layer transfer mode for the actlve layer.

Valid mode values are: 8 - Copy 9 - OR 10 - XOR 11 - BIC 12 - Inverse Copy 13 - Inverse OR 14 - Inverse XOR 15 - Inverse BIC

This procedure may also set the layer transparency to approximate the given transfer mode on systems that don't support transfer modes.
