    GraphicalPlacement Class
    In This Topic
    This class is a superclass for all graphical classes, like Line, Arc etc.
    Inheritance Hierarchy
    Syntax
    public class GraphicalPlacement : Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement 
    public ref class GraphicalPlacement : public Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement 
    Remarks
    Some properties of Data model classes are not linked with their owners even if from the syntax it may seem otherwise. Like in this line: oRectangle.Pen.ColorId = 5, the ColorId of the Pen is changed but oRectangle object doesn't know about it since the Pen property is a stand alone value not aware of oRectangle object existence. This remark applies to the following GraphicalPlacement property: Pen.

    Public Properties
     NameDescription
    Public PropertyReturns an array of objects cross-referenced with this object (i.e. having the same name - in case of functions - or otherwise associated) (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertyReturns the project as number. The number is unique for all open projects in one session. The number changes when the project is closed and opened again. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertySets display sequence. The drawing order flag will be used to sort elements according to drawing order within a group. If elements chare the same value the drawing order will result from order of the data model. Default value is 67. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public PropertyReturns a group that the Placement object belongs to. If the Placement object doesn't belong to any group, NULL is returned. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public Property

    Determines if the the StorableObject is locked.

    The StorableObject is locked when it was explicitly or implicitly locked.

    (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertyReturns true if the placement is placed (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public PropertyDetermines if StorableObject is read-only (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertyGets/Sets visibility of the object as set in its properties dialog. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public Property

    Determines if the the StorableObject is transient.

    The StorableObject is transient when it was created by default constructor and:

    it is a Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Page and it was not assigned a Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Project,

    it is a Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement or any class derived from it and was not assigned a Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Page.

    (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertyDetermines if StorableObject is correct database object and is not deleted. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertyGets/Sets the actual visibility state of the object.  
    Public PropertyGets or sets object's graphical layer. If object is not assigned to a project (Project is null), null is returned  
    Public PropertyGets layer id of layer assigned to this object.  
    Public PropertyGet or set the placement's location. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public PropertyReturns the object identifier as number. The number is unique for all objects of this type. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertyReturns the page the Placement is on, or assigns a Page object to the placement. If the placement was previously assigned to another page, it is removed from old one and assigned to the page given as an argument. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public PropertySets Pen related to this object.  
    Public PropertyReturns the project the StorableObject belongs to. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertyAllows properties access.  
    Public PropertyReturns the type of the object as number. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)

    Public Methods
     NameDescription
    Public MethodCopy Placement and insert the Copy into destination group Placement will be copied into the same Project as the destination group If this placement is transient, the copy will be persistent, if the destination group is also persistent. Group or Page, where the placement will be inserted (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public MethodDestructor for deterministic finalization of GraphicalPlacement object. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public MethodOperator of comparison implementation. Checks if two StorableObjects refer to the same object in the project. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public MethodPlacement bounding box. Bounding box is a rectangle which contain this placement. It can be also used to determine placement size. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public MethodServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public MethodTries to lock current object in database for exclusive access. Throws Eplan.EplApi.Base.LockingException on failure. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public MethodRemoves placement. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public MethodOverloaded. Scales the placement (or group of placements) by the specified factors in X and Y axis with scaling origin point specified by the ptOrigin parameter X axis factor. E.g. value of 2 makes the width two times bigger.Y axis factor. E.g. value of 0.5 makes the height two times smaller.Scaling origin point. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement)
    Public MethodThis method sets the visibility of the graphical instance to depend on the layer setting  
    Public MethodTries to lock current object. If object is Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement - it's page will be locked as well; Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.E3D.Placement3D locks it's installation space; Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Function locks all it's connections and connection definition points; Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Page locks all placements from this page. Throws Eplan.EplApi.Base.LockingException on failure. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public MethodReturns this object as string identifier. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
