Sets a value of an element's attribute or custom attribute defined by Extended property name.

 

Synopsis:

 

PGModel.SetProperty(FullId, ExtendedPropertyName, Value)

 

Parameters:

 

FullId: ID of the element or element instance. Mandatory. No Default value. Supported formats for defining the element:

ElementId: Integer. ID of the element.

ElementId[.InstanceId]: String. ID and an optional instance ID of the element.

ElementSymbol[.InstanceId]: String. The symbol and an optional instance ID of the element.

ExtendedPropertyName: String. Defines the attribute or custom attribute name. Note that cardinality N attributes contain the attribute index extension '(<index>)'. See the listing below for supported properties for different element types:

+ all custom attribute types defined for each type. To refer to member attributes in attribute sets or enumerations, use the extended naming with the following syntax: <attribute set / enumeration>, for example EventType.Start

The value for an External model type custom attribute pointing to a server model should be a string following this syntax: 8000:<ModelId>:<ProcessLevelId>:<Path>:<ProcessLevelPath (can be left empty)>/ (for example: 8000:1265506417:0:\\localhost\Demo Models\2:/). To have the External model type custom attribute point to a file, use the path to the file, e.g. C:\Path\To\Some\File.foo.

 

Value: Variant. Value to be set to the attribute. Note that if ExtendedPropertyName refers to an enumerated custom attribute, a valid enumerated string must be passed as the Value parameter.

 

When setting array values (usually relations to other objects), do not set the whole array at once. Check which values must be added and removed from the original values and use the Add/Remove methods to set the values. However, some array values must be set as whole arrays (the order of the values is important). These include:

EntryRules and ExitRules in Process Steps and Stores

ProcessingTimes and InputFrequencies in Proces Steps and Flows
