GetDependingProperty

This function returns a handle to the property that is the 'index'-th property of influence on the form. It also returns the handle to instance this property belongs to.

Note: the returned property is always a datatypeProperty
Note: if input is incorrect (for example index is in wrong domain) _property and
    instance will be both zero.
Note: BE AWARE, THIS FUNCTION EXPECTS A TREE, NOT A NETWORK, IN CASE OF A NETWORK THIS FUNCTION CAN LOCK THE ENGINE

Syntax

//   Visual Studio for Windows
public:
void __declspec(dllexport) __stdcall GetDependingProperty(
            __int64             baseOwlInstance,
            __int64             conceptualFace,

//   Linux, OS-X and non-Visual Studio Windows solutions
public:
void GetDependingProperty(
            int64_t             baseOwlInstance,
            int64_t             conceptualFace,
            int64_t             index,
            int64_t             * owlInstance,

        );    

Property baseOwlInstance

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
The handle to the specific (base) 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 conceptualFace

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
A conceptual face is a face that does not have to be placed within one plane. For example a Cylinder has typically 3 conceptual faces where a Box typically has 6 conceptual faces. In case of a Box the 'normal' face count is equal to the conceptual face count, in case of a Cylinder the 'normal' face count depends on the segmentation, for example in case of 36 segments, it will have 38 faces but still 3 conceptual faces.

Property index

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
This is the index (0 based) of the depending property available for this specific conceptual face.

Property owlInstance

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (reference)
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 datatypeProperty

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (reference)
This attribute will be filled with the handle to the property, this is always a datatype property. This datatype property is driving the original geometry of the given conceptual face.
