Creates a new element instance and returns the FullId (String) = <Id>.<InstanceId> of the created instance.




PGModel.CreateInstance(ElementId, Parameters, out FullId)




ElementId: Integer. Id of the element to be instantiated.

Parameters: A semicolon-separated list of parameters for creating a new element instance. The supported parameters:

ProcessLevel=<PS level Id>: Defines the diagram where the instance is created. If omitted, the instance is created under the main diagram.

OrganizationUnit=<Organization Unit ID>: Defines the organization unit where the instance is created. Note that the organization unit must be instantiated to the diagram that is defined with the ProcessLevel= parameter. Instance graphical properties are set automatically so that instance is placed inside the Organization unit lanes.

InstanceGraphicalProperties=<startpoint.X>,<startpoint.Y>,<height>,<width>: Defines the graphical position and size of the instance. Some of the properties can be separately left empty. However, both <startpoint.X> and <startpoint.Y> must be set if position is needed to be set. If <startpoint.X> and <startpoint.Y> are set, these override the possible automatic Organization unit placement.

FullId (String) = <Id>.<InstanceID> of the created instance.
