Assign


Unit:SDL_geomap
Class: TSymbolRepository
Declaration: procedure Assign(Source: TPersistent);

The Assign method assigns one TSymbolRepository to another. The following parameters are copied from the source symbol repository:
  • NumEntries
  • Symbols
  • Backup of symbols

Hint: In general, the statement Destination := Source is not the same as the statement Destination.Assign(Source). The first statement makes Destination reference the same object as Source, whereas the second statement copies the contents of the object referenced by Source into the object referenced by Destination.
