Save and Restore Window and Cursor Position.


This function Maintains the edit window dimensions, edit window location, and cursor position within the edit window. Even though the information is maintained, it is not accessible by the calling DLL function or API macro.

The first call allocates an array and stores the values for later use.

The second call restores the information using the values from the array and then deletes the array.

If the calling DLL function or API macro exits without issuing the second call then a memory leak will result.


API Macro Example:

int iPosition = tlaPosition( );
tlaPosition( iPosition );

DLL Function Example:

long lPosition = tlaPosition( );
tlaPosition( lPosition );

Input Parameters

Parm Name Code Meaning
1 Type 0 Allocate array and save information.
position array Restore location and release array.

Return Codes

Code Message
postion array
