    Public Properties
     NameDescription
    Public PropertyAn array of symbol's connection points  
    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 PropertyOverridden. Get or set the placement's location.  
    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 PropertyReturns symbol, for which this variant was created.  
    Public PropertyOverridden. Returns the project the StorableObject belongs to.  
    Public PropertyAllows access to properties of the SymbolVariant  
    Public PropertyReturns Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Graphics.PropertyPlacements assigned to the SymbolVariant.  
    Public PropertyReturns all grouped Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placements. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    Public PropertyReturns name of the library the symbol is taken from.  
    Public PropertyReturns number of the symbol in the library (unique for library) assigned to the SymbolVariant.  
    Public PropertyReturns the type of the object as number. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.StorableObject)
    Public PropertyReturns number that identifies variant of a Symbol.

    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 MethodOverloaded. Creates object on page from information contained in SymbolVariant object.  
    Public MethodOverloaded. Remove all Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placements only from a group and it's sub groups. If true method will remove also SubGroups. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    Public MethodDestructor for deterministic finalization of StorableObject 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 MethodInitializes the SymbolVariant object.  
    Public MethodInsert Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement to a group. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    Public MethodInsert Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placements to a group. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    Public MethodCheck if the Group is editable. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    Public MethodReturns true, if group is valid if not, the group should be dissolved (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    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 MethodMove all Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placements in a group by a Eplan.EplApi.Base.PointD given as param. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    Public MethodRemoves placement. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    Public MethodOverloaded. Remove Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placement from the group and from the project. The Placement object passed into this method is no longer valid. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    Public MethodOverloaded. Remove Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Placements from the group and from the project. The Placement objects passed into this method are no longer valid. (Inherited from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Group)
    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)
