Creates a new model. Can be used for creating both file and server models. If a server connection is open, a server model is created. A file model is created if there is no active server connection.

 

Synopsis:

 

PGApplication.CreateModel(DefaultSettings, Template | Base Model, out Model)

 

Parameters:

 

DefaultSettings: boolean flag indicating whether default settings are used.

Template | Base Model: Defines the template or a base model that is used with the new model. With file models only a file template can be used, and with server models only a server template or a base model can be used. For server templates and base models the value can be either the path of the template/base model (for example "\\Folder\Folder2\Template") or the ID of the template/base model.

out Model: Name of the variant where the model will be stored. This variant can be used with the SaveFileModelAs and SaveServerModelAs commands.
