Pinned topic Elements is an ClearCase.Application Child - Why?

‏2013-02-11T07:15:29Z |
Hello

Actually I try to get a little bit of control of clearCase by using its automatisation object. This Object has the childs "Views" a listing of all availiable views and "VOBs" a list of it's VOBs.

An Element is definde by it's path

mountingDrive:\nameView\nameVob\pathToElement\nameElement

Based on ClearCase.Application you can use the routine "Element". There you have to insert the path to the element "mountingDrive:\nameView\nameVob\pathToElement\nameElement".

Based on a View it should be: "nameView\nameVob\pathToElement\nameElement"

And based on a Vob: "nameVob\pathToElement\nameElement"

The idea behind this: I must not know the value of the mounting drive. If I have an element based on a view or a vob, I can get it's physically path by using it's path attribute and my software will still keep runing even if this parameter has been changed.

So: How do I can define an element by using a view or a vob.

Best regards
Wolfgang
