Scripting stories

Recommended Posts



I finally made a manager for stories for transferring story data across documents.

There are a few relevant limits, but it is roughly possible to get a decent command doing the bulk of the job.


A couple of things are not clear to me: Does anybody know if there is a difference between these two?

* VW 17 (2013): GetStoryLayerInfo(index: INTEGER; VAR name: STRING; VAR scaleFactor: REAL; VAR layerLevelType : STRING; VAR elevationOffset: REAL; VAR defaultWallHeight: REAL): BOOLEAN;

* VW 20 (2015): GetLevelTemplateInfo(index: INTEGER; VAR layerName: STRING; VAR scaleFactor: REAL; VAR levelType: STRING; VAR elevation: REAL; VAR wallHeight: REAL): BOOLEAN;


I don't see any difference, and I tested really extensively. But, as always, I might be missing the obvious.



Does anyone know how to check if the suffix is actually used as a prefix?


Thank you,
