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.


Data type Name Required Description
Numeric Cluster X/Y Delta No Moves the selected objects the number of pixels specified in X and Y.
Generic Refnum 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.
Boolean Duplicate? No Creates a copy of the moved objects.
