API Tags

» Access: public


This function will trigger the call of the CPAINT backend which in turn will call your backend application and will provide it with the arguments passed by args. You must supply a new argument for each argument you want to pass to the backend.

When cpaint.set_async(true) - which is the default - then your frontend application code will continue to run and will not wait until the response from the backend has been processed by CPAINT.
