Invalidate shapes in the scope.

Available also on: Delphi | Java | ActiveX.


// C#
public void InvalidateScope(
  string _query,
  string _style
' VisualBasic
Public Sub InvalidateScope(
  ByVal _query As String,
  ByVal _style As String
// Oxygene
  procedure InvalidateScope(
    _query : String;
    _style : String


Name Type Description
_query string
Query closely mimics the SQL WHERE clause
_style string
Name of style to be used. If Empty, default style will be used. Important to correctly calculate shape sizes.


Use this method to invalidate only shapes that meet the scope criteria (even those that are not visible!). While changing some kind of shapes, we can refresh only chosen to improve performance.

The routine finds all shapes meeting given _query criteria and execute its Invalidate method.

When using this operation, never call any function which uses FindFirst..FindNext (any function which iterates through the shapes using it - so never use inside an operation like Locate, PaintScope etc.).
