Creates a new model element and returns the Id of the element.
PGModel.CreateElement(TypeId | TypeName, Name, Parameters, out Id)
TypeId | TypeName: Element type Id (Integer) or Element type name (String) to be created. Mandatory. No Default value. The following values should be used for creating the system types:
•Note type: Create a note
•Checkpoint type: Create a checkpoint
•Text type: Create a text item
•Organization item type: Create an organization item
•Store type: Create a store
•Group type: Create a group
Name: String. Name of the element.
Parameters: A semicolon-separated list of parameters for creating a new element. The supported parameters:
•ParentElement=<ParentId>: Defines the parent in element hierarchy. If omitted, the element is created under root. Note that ParentElement can be set only for the element types that have the ParentElement attribute.
•ProcessLevel=<PS level Id>: Defines the process level where the default first instance is created. If omitted, the element is created under the main process level.
•OrganizationUnit=<Organization Unit Id>: Defines the organization unit where the first instance is created. Note that the organization unit must be instantiated to the process level that is defined with the ProcessLevel= parameter. Instance graphical properties are set automatically so that the instance is placed inside the organization unit lanes.
•InstanceGraphicalProperties=<startpoint.X>,<startpoint.Y>,<height>,<width>: Defines the graphical position and size of the first default 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 the possible automatic Organization unit placement. When creating an Organization Unit and the modeling direction is vertical, the <startpoint.X> and <width> parameters can be used, and when the modeling direction is horizontal, the <startpoint.Y> and <height> parameters can be used.
•OptimizeRoute: True | False. Defines whether route optimization is used when drawing a flow. The default value is true. Optional
•Id: Integer. Id of the created element.
•From=<Id | FullId>: Defines the starting element id (Id) or instance id (FullId) for a created flow. If simple Id is given, the first instance is assumed. Optional.
•To = <Id | FullId>: Defines the target element id (Id) or instance id (FullId) for a created flow. If simple Id is given, the first instance is assumed. Optional.
Modify rights to the process level.
Below are listed the return values that this function can return:
iResult = PGModel.CreateElement("Activity", "My Activity", "InstanceGraphicalProperties=1050,800,100,150;", EId)
'Creates an "Activity" type element named "My Activity" to the main process level, and sets the graphical properties for the default instance'
iResult = PGModel.CreateElement("Subprocess", "My Subprocess", "OrganizationUnit=121212; InstanceGraphicalProperties=,,100,150;", EId)
'Creates a "Subprocess" type element named "My Subprocess" to the main process level, places the element to the organization unit with ID 121212, and sets the height and width graphical properties for the instance.'
