The best way I have found is to SAVE it then RESTORE it. My routine
MGH_OBJ_CLONE provides a convenient way to do this.


It sounds kludgy but it works surprisingly well. I have used it widely &
successfully in my OG code for a year now. Just make sure the IDLgrModel in
question is not a child of any other IDLgrModel or IDLgrView at the time you
clone it.
