    Any ideas as to how to implement "CopyFrom(...)" function in

    What I thought of it to use relection to get get_* functions and then
use set_* functions to set the properties for the local object since "this =
fromObject" was not working. It said this is not allowed since the field is

FontInfo.cs(149,4): error CS1604: Cannot assign to '<this>' because it is

    Setting each and every property one by one looks like very inefficient.
It looks very ugly and pathetic to do something like:
    this.bold = fromObj.Bold;
    this.... = that....

Happy Hacking!
