Short Name: Move Selected Objects
Requires: VI Scripting
Class: TopLevelDiagram Methods
To Use: Create a method.
Moves the selected objects within this TopLevelDiagram by the number of pixels specified in X/Y Delta. This method simulates a mouse drag, and it has the same side effects associated with mouse-dragging in the development environment, including resizing an owner to contain the dragged objects, altering the selection list to include objects duplicated by the drag, and forcing a duplicate-drag when moving objects to another block diagram.
|X/Y Delta||No||Moves the selected objects the number of pixels specified in X and Y.|
|New Owner||No||Moves objects such that they are all owned by the object specified in this parameter. If you do not specify a new owner with this parameter, all objects stay within their current owner.|
|Duplicate?||No||Creates a copy of the moved objects.|
