Match Object Attributes

Demonstrates a custom object attribute matching function in RhinoScript.

VBScript

' Description:
'   Matches, or copies, the attributes of a source object to a
'   target object or an array of target objects. If the source
'   object is not specified, the attributes of the target object(s)
'   will be reset to Rhino's default object attributes.
' Parameters:
'   arrTargets - An array of strings identifying the target objects.
'   strSource  - The identifier of the source object. If the source
'                object is not specified, the attributes of the target
'                object(s) will be reset to Rhino's default object
'                attributes.
'   intMode    - The group mode flag, where:
'                  intMode = -1, remove all groups from targets
'                  intMode =  0, do not copy source groups to targets
'                  intMode =  1, copy source groups to targets
'
