DOM API: LlCreateSubObjectFrom

Hi everybody,



I need to add new table lines via API at rundtime. Usually, I have a template that I design with all properties within the Designer.



Via code I then take this template, add a new line, create all fields and set all properties according to the template (line and column).



It would be very cool to have a function LlCreateSubObjectFrom that would work just like LlDomCreateSubobject with an additional parameter that would allow to pass the name of the template.



A huge advantage (besides the performance gain) would be that I just needed to fill in the content, not the formatting.



We’re currently working with C++ MFC/LL20.



Just my idea.

Actually, for .NET this is already available. You can simply use the CopyFrom() method that’s available for all DOM objects, e.g.

myNewTextObject.CopyFrom(myOldTextObject);

As this API heavily relies on reflection, we cannot offer it directly for other, non-.NET languages. Coming up with a pure C++ core solution would indeed be an option, too. Thanks for the suggestion.
