Methods
  Name Description
Public method CompareTo
Compares Identifiers of model objects.
(Inherited from ModelObject.)
Public method Delete
Deletes the reinforcement mesh instance with the given identifier from the model database.
(Overrides ModelObjectDelete.)
Public method Equals
Check if Identifiers of model objects are same.
(Inherited from ModelObject.)
Public methodCode example GetAllReportProperties
Retrieves all properties for the model object in one hashtable. Type for the returned value must be checked using type casting.
