ImportModelA

This function imports a design tree via an array.
The design tree will be added to the given existing model.
The return value contains the first instance not referenced by any other instance or zero if it does not exist. In case the imported model is created with SaveInstanceTree() this instance is unique and equal to the instance used within the call SaveInstanceTree().

Syntax

//   Visual Studio for Windows
public:
__int64 __declspec(dllexport) __stdcall ImportModelA(
            __int64             model,
            const unsigned char * content,
            __int64             size
        );

//   Linux, OS-X and non-Visual Studio Windows solutions
public:
int64_t ImportModelA(
            int64_t             model,
            const unsigned char * content,
            int64_t             size
        );    

Property model

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
The handle to the model. The model handle is static during its existance. Several models can be opened simultaniously within one session. Different models are always independent, threads are allowed to be running on different models simultaniously.

Property content

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (reference)
The content of this IO call, the size of the content is defined by attribute size.

Property size

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
The size of the content as defined in number of bytes.

Example

Here you can find code snippits that show how the API call ImportModelA can be used.

#include "engine/include/engine.h"
#include <assert.h>

void    ImportModelByArray(int64_t model, wchar_t * importFileName)
{
    FILE    * myFileRead = nullptr;

    _wfopen_s(&myFileRead, importFileName, L"rb");
    if (model && &myFileRead) {
        fseek(myFileRead, 0L, SEEK_END);
        int_t   size = ftell(myFileRead);
        rewind(myFileRead);

        if (size) {
            unsigned char   * content = new unsigned char[size];
            size = fread(content, 1, size, myFileRead);

            ImportModelA(model, content, (int64_t) size);
            delete[] content;
        }
        else {
            assert(false);
        }

        fclose(myFileRead);
    }
    else {
        assert(false);
    }
}
