Retrieves the unique identifier of a lockable object set with a string identifier.

    API_Guid  ACAPI_TeamworkControl_FindLockableObjectSet (
        const GS::UniString&     objectSetName



[in] String identifier of the lockable object set (see below)


Return Values

The function returns the Guid of the named lockable object set if found by the given objectSetName string, otherwise it returns APINULLGuid.



This function is used to retrieve the identifier of a named lockable object set, such as attribute types, favorites, model view options.

In certain cases lockable object sets need to be reserved simultaneously. For this purpose compound lockable object sets were introduced, to hold the lockable object sets, and to make these sets be reserved together. Reserving individually a lockable object set which belongs to a compound one may result insecure functionality in the Teamwork project, should be avoided.

Compound lockable object sets are indentified with a string. Currently the following compound lockable object sets are used:

  • Layers, Layer Combinations (compound identifier name: "LayerSettingsDialog")
  • Project Preferences Data, Dimension Standards (compound identifier name: "PreferencesDialog")

API 20 Note that before API version 20, this function handled compound lockable object sets only. From API 20 you need to use this function to retrieve the guid of all lockable object sets.
