CloseModel

This function closes the model. After this call none of the instances and classes within the model can be used anymore, also garbage collection is not allowed anymore, in default compilation the model itself will be known in the kernel, however known to be disabled. Calls containing the model reference will be protected from crashing when called.

Syntax

//   Visual Studio for Windows
public:
__int64 __declspec(dllexport) __stdcall CloseModel(
            __int64             model
        );

//   Linux, OS-X and non-Visual Studio Windows solutions
public:
int64_t CloseModel(
            int64_t             model
        );    

Property model

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
The handle to the model. The model handle is static during its existance. Several models can be opened simultaniously within one session. Different models are always independent, threads are allowed to be running on different models simultaniously.
