SetObjectProperty

This function sets the value(s) of a certain objectTypeProperty in the context of an instance.
The value of card gives the actual card of the values list.
The list values of integers is a list of handles to instances, this list has a length as givin in the values card.
The return value always should be 0, if not something is wrong in the way this property is called.

Note: the client application needs to make sure the cardinality of
    the property is within the boundaries.

Syntax

//   Visual Studio for Windows
public:
__int64 __declspec(dllexport) __stdcall SetObjectProperty(
            __int64             owlInstance,
            __int64             rdfProperty,
            const __int64       * values,
            __int64             card
        );

//   Linux, OS-X and non-Visual Studio Windows solutions
public:
int64_t SetObjectProperty(
            int64_t             owlInstance,
            int64_t             rdfProperty,
            const int64_t       * values,
            int64_t             card
        );    

Property owlInstance

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
The handle to the specific instance in the design tree. The instance handle is static within one open model but is most probably different when the same instance is opened in another model. The instance is always exactly of one unique class.

Property rdfProperty

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
This attribute represents a handle to the property, this can be either a datatype property (attribute), an object property (relation) or non-defined property. The handle will be static during the life-time of the model, when the model (or part of it) is saved and opened again, the handle will most probably be different.

Property values

Size: 32 bit / 4 byte (reference)
The input array for object properties content. The contents memory is allocated by the host

Property card

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
The cardinality (i.e. number of elements) of the array as given or returned.

Example

Here you can find code snippits that show how the API call SetObjectProperty can be used.

    int64_t values[3] = { instanceCollectionII, instanceCube, instanceCube };
    SetObjectProperty(instanceCollectionI, propertyObjects, values, 3);
    SetObjectProperty(instanceCollectionII, propertyObjects, &instanceCube, 1);

    //

    //
    assert(GetVolume(instanceCollectionI, nullptr, nullptr) == 3);
    assert(GetVolume(instanceCollectionII, nullptr, nullptr) == 1);

    //
    //  The resulting model can be viewed in 3D-Editor.exe
    //
    SaveModel(model, "c:\\created\\myFile.bin");
    CloseModel(model);
