||procedure Assign(Source: TPersistent);
The Assign method assigns one TMat4D to another. The following properties/parameters are copied from the source component:
- the data
- the events
||In general, the statement Destination := Source; is not the same as the statement Destination.Assign(Source);. The first statement makes Destination referring to the same object as Source, whereas the second statement copies the contents of the object referenced by Source into the object referenced by Destination.
||The Clone method is comparable to the Assign method. However cloning a data matrix copies only the data (not any auxiliary information, as for example the DataID), and triggers the OnChange event, while Assign does not.
