Return value



Long name (short name) Argument types Properties
queueForDelete(qfd) boolean create
The specified layout is put on a queue. When the queue is full, layouts past the end of the queue are automatically deleted. If the layout is already on the queue, it is moved to the front. This allows us to dispose of editors when they are no longer being used. This flag should only be used by the showEditor.mel script.

Flag can appear in Create mode of command Flag can appear in Edit mode of command
Flag can appear in Query mode of command Flag can have multiple arguments, passed either as a tuple or a list.
