    NS_CStringCopy

    « XPCOM API Reference

    Summary

    The NS_CStringCopy function copies the value from one nsACString instance to another. This is a low-level API.

    #include "nsStringAPI.h"
     
    nsresult NS_CStringCopy(
      nsACString& aDestString,
      const nsACString& aSrcString
    );
    

    Parameters

    aDestString
    [in] A nsACString instance to be modified.
    aSrcString
    [in] A nsACString instance containing the new string value.

    Return Values

    The NS_CStringCopy function returns NS_OK if successful. Otherwise, it returns an error code.

    Remarks

    This function is designed to allow the implementation to efficiently assign the same value to two string objects. The implementation may employ reference counting techniques to optimize this operation.

    Example

    /* attribute ACString value; */
    NS_IMETHODIMP MyComponent::GetValue(nsACString& aValue)
    {
      return NS_CStringCopy(aValue, mValue);
    }
    NS_IMETHODIMP MyComponent::SetValue(const nsACString& aValue)
    {
      return NS_CStringCopy(mValue, aValue);
    }
