PGModel.Find(Parameters, Criteria, SortBy, out ResultList)




Parameters: A semicolon-separated list of parameters for defining the search base. Supported keywords are:

FINDSTRING = String containing text that is searched for. In the case this parameter is present, the KIND parameter is ignored.

FINDSTRING_OPTIONS = Comma-separated list of options for FINDSTRING. The supported options are:

oWholeWordsOnly: Search whole words only, i.e. words that contain FINDSTRING but are longer than that are not included

oMatchCase: Perform a case sensitive search

KIND = ELEMENTTYPES | ELEMENTS. If this is omitted, the default value "" (all kinds of objects) is used. Note that in the case FINDSTRING is present, this parameter is ignored.

INSTANCEONLEVEL =  Integer defining the ID of the diagram where the search is performed.

IDS = Comma-separated list of element IDs. If this is omitted, the default value "" (all elements defined by the Kind parameter) is used.

ELEMENTTYPES = Comma-separated list of element type names or IDs. If this is omitted, the default value "" (all element types) is used. Also predefined Meta type names can be used:

oALLACTIVITIES: all activity types

oALLSUBPROCESSES: all diagram types

oALLFLOWS: all flow types

oALLEXTERNALMODELS: all external model types

oALLELEMENTS: all custom element types

oALLINFORMATIONFLOWS: all information flow types

oALLNONINFORMATIONFLOWS: all non-information flow types

oALLINFORMATIONCONTAINERS: all information container types

oALLPROCESSSTEPS: all process step types

Criteria: Not supported at the moment. Use an empty string here.

SortBy: Not supported at the moment. Use an empty string here.

out ResultList: Variant for storing an array which contains the results of the find operation. The format of the array depends on whether FINDSTRING or KIND was used. In the case of FINDSTRING, the result is an array with three columns:

oElementId, integer

oElementName, string

oFoundInFields, string


With the KIND parameter the resulting array has only the ElementId column.
