Group/Combine Model Elements in Modelling Editor
interref adoxx combine
1/9/19 1:26 PM

Is there a possiblity to group model elements together,
so  if element A  is moved the model element B is also moved in the modeling tool.

To make this more clear here my example:
i have following model concepts (see picture):
- Component 
- Pin

If i place now the Componet  in the modeling tool automaticly 2 Pins beside the model element Component are created.
Now i also need a possibilty to link the Pin to the Component so that when i move the Component the Pin is also moved. 

To have also the logical linke between this model elements a model INTERREF is used.

Thank you for your help!

The easiest way to move the Pin objects when moving the corresponding Component object is to select the Pin objects together with the Component object. You can either do this manually by selecting all the objects when you want to move them or you can do this e.g. via a Script which, when executed, selects the Pin objects connected via INTERREF with the selected Component object.

Regarding the Script:
1) Create an attribute of type “EXPRESSION” with the name e.g. “PinsInterrefIDs” for the class Component

2) Add the following Expression to the standard value of the PinsInterrefIDs attribute:
EXPR type:string expr: (irtobjs("#Name of the INTERREF attribute which connects the Pins with the Component object#")) → e.g. EXPR type:string expr: (irtobjs("Pins"))

3) AdoScript code: What the following script basically does is
a) it gets all the IDs of selected objects in an active model
b) it loops through the list with the IDs and because only the selected Component objects are relevant in this case it checks for the objects of class Component
c) For the selected Component objects it gets the IDs of the Pins objects, which are connected via INTERREF with a selected Component object, into an array
d) it loops through the array to select all the Pins objects
