    PropertyPlacement Class
    In This Topic
    This class represents text object showing a value of property of other object. It is not possible to change property placements of SymbolVariant because symbols library database is readonly. In this case BaseException will be thrown (e.g. when changing IsVisible property). Please use the Eplan.EplApi.Datamodel.SymboReference.UseLocalPropertyPlacements() method in order to change the local PropertyPlacements of Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.SymbolReference object. The following example shows how to use class PropertyPlacement.

    public class PropertyPlacement : TextBase 
    public ref class PropertyPlacement : public TextBase 
    Remarks
    It is possible to set new Location of PropertyPlacement even if it has been docked.
    Example
    The following example shows how to use class PropertyPlacement.
    m_oTestFunction.SwitchLocalPropertyPlacements(true);
    PropertyPlacement oPropertyPlacement = new PropertyPlacement();
    oPropertyPlacement.Create(m_oTestFunction, 20011);
    oPropertyPlacement.IsVisible = true;
    oPropertyPlacement.Height = 15;
    oPropertyPlacement.Location = new PointD(10.0, 25.0);
    oPropertyPlacement.Remove();
