    In This Topic
    This namespace contains classes for working with master data. Mainly the access to parts management is available via this namespace.
    Classes
     ClassDescription
    ClassBase class for exceptions thrown from MasterData.
    Class 
    ClassMDAccessoryList objects can hold a list of accessory positions These are represented by a MDAccessoryListPosition object
    Class 
    ClassMDAccessoryPlacement objects can hold a list of accessory positions These are represented by a MDAccessoryPlacementPosition object
    Classeach part can store a list of accessories. Each accessory is represented with MDAccessoryPosition object That accessory can be a part (type = Component), than Name and Variant is used. Or a accessorylist (type = AccessoryList), than only Name is used.
    ClassClass for customer and manufacturer/supplier This class represents an address in the parts database. That address can be a customer or manufacturer/supplier - depending on the Type (MDPartsDatabaseItem.Enums.Type)
    ClassUtility class that represents id and index of P8 API properties.
    ClassBase class for null arguments
    ClassClass represents cable function template of part.
    ClassThrown when error occurred while adding new symbol position into MDPart.
    ClassClass represents function template of part which type = component.
    ClassThis class represents connection points in the parts database. That connection points has a unique name (Name) and a list of connection terminals (MDConnectionPointPosition)
    ClassA ConnectionPointInfo object (MDConnectionPointInfo) can hold a list of connection points. Each of them is represented with a MDConnectionPointPosition object.
    ClassWhen a part will be fixed on a mounting panel, several holes are nessesary. The definition how to drill that holes is represented by a MDConstruction object
    ClassRepresents one section of user defined contour.
    ClassThrown when error occurred while connecting to parts database.
    ClassThrow when database not allows any writing If parts database is read only or the database scheme ist not up to date, than any writing is forbidden. It could be prevented by checking database.UpdateScheme()
    Classpart with productgroup mechanical / cabinet can store door-parts Each door-part ist represented with MDDoorPosition object
    ClassMDConstruction objects can hold a list of drilling positions These are represented by a MDDrillingPosition object
    ClassClass represents electrical relay function template of part.
    ClassThrow when property is empty and couldn't return logic value; It could be prevented by checking PropertyValue::Empty.
    Class 
    Class 
    ClassBase class for invalid arguments
    ClassThrow when internally used handle is not valid. May occur if the user has several objects pointing to the same place in project, and on one of them calls for example ::Delete or ::Remove, In such situation , properties returned by another objects will throw InvalidHandleException.
    ClassIs thrown when given properties' index is incorrectly - when index is less then 1 or greater then MaxIndex
    ClassThrow when given or result time value isn't valid.
    ClassClass represents function definition of part which product top group = mechanics.
    ClassThrows when user try to fetch not-indexed property using index;
    ClassThrown when MasterData object cannot be created.
    ClassThrow when MasterData object is used, but has not been created yet.
    ClassThis class represents a part in the parts database. That part can be a component, assembly or module - depending on the Type (MDPartsDatabaseItem.Enums.Type)
    Classparts of type MDPartsDatabaseItem.Enums.Assembly can hold a list of assembly parts These are represented by a MDPartAssemblyPosition object.
    Classparts of product top group: mechanic and product group: housing can hold a list of locked mounting areas These are represented by a MDPartLockedMountingAreaPosition object.
    Classparts of type MDPartsDatabaseItem.Enums.Module can hold a list of module parts These are represented by a MDPartModulePosition object.
    ClassClass represents mounting panel items which can be stored by parts having product top group 'Mechanic' and product group 'Cabinet'.
    ClassParts of product top group: mechanic, product group: busbar and product sub group: busbar adapter can hold a list of support bar parts These are represented by a MDPartSupportBarPosition object.
    ClassClass for defining use cases of safety-related values of a part. Please specify at least one function range using following properties: IsInput, IsLogic, IsOutput.
    ClassThis is the class that represents a parts database
    ClassBase class of all items stored in parts database
    ClassThat class contains enums for classes based on MDPartsDatabaseItem
    ClassBase class for child-data from MDPart, MDConstruction or MDConnectionPointInfo e.g. MDDoorPosition, MDConnectionPointPosition.
    ClassThis class represents collection of P8 properties of MDPartsDatabaseItem class. Please check also base classes for other properties which are available for MDPartsDatabaseItem objects:
    ClassA transaction object for a parts database
    ClassTo open or create a parts database there is the management class MDPartsManagement.
    ClassParts of product top group: mechanic, product group: busbar and product sub group: busbar adapter can hold a list of support bar parts These are represented by a MDPartSupportBarPosition object.
    ClassBase class for errors caused by missing permission.
    ClassClass represents PLC function template of part.
    ClassClass represents plug function template of part.
    ClassThis class provides information about property.
    Class 
    ClassThrown when read-only value is being set.
    ClassClass holding value of P8 Master Data property.
    ClassThrown if the type of property does not match.
    Class
