    Terminal.Bridge Class
    In This Topic
    This class represents a collection of all bridge connections attached to a given terminal or, if the terminal is part of a multi-level terminal, all bridge connections attached to one level of the multi-level terminal. When getting bridges through TerminalStrip::Bridges property, this class represents a whole bridge which means that it contains all segments of a given type which are connected together (and not just segments connected directly to one terminal)
    Inheritance Hierarchy


    public class Terminal.Bridge 
    public ref class Terminal.Bridge 
    Each bridge connection (a segment) is represented by an item in the array returned by the BridgeSegments property. (Note: a segment is two terminals connected by a single bridge connection.)
    Terminal term1; // A single-level terminal with some bridge connections existing and connected to it
    Terminal.Bridge[] arrBridges = term1.Bridges; // For the single-level terminal, if the terminal has any bridge attached,
    											  // the array contains 1 element.
    Terminal.Bridge.BridgeInfo[] arrBridgeSegments = arrBridges[0].BridgeSegments;  // The arrBridgeSegments array contains as all bridge segments
    																				// of the terminal's first bridge.
    																				// All bridge connections are included: 
    																				// internal, external and 'small' (i.e. jumper bridges, etc.)
    Terminal other = arrBridgeSegments[0].BridgedFunction as Terminal;
    Connection brCn = arrBridgeSegments[0].Conn;
    if (other != NULL && brCn != NULL)
    	// The _term1_ terminal is connected with the _other_ terminal through the _brCn_ connection.
    Terminal term1of3; // A part of a 3-level terminal.
    arrBridges = term1of3.Bridges; // If there's a bridge on each level, the array contains 3 elements.
    arrBridgeSegments = arrBridges[0].BridgeSegments; // All bridge connections (i.e. segments) of the first level
    arrBridgeSegments = arrBridges[1].BridgeSegments; // All bridge connections of the second level
    arrBridgeSegments = arrBridges[2].BridgeSegments; // All bridge connections of the third level
    Terminal level3 = arrBridges[2].Term;
    other = arrBridges[2].BridgeSegments[0].BridgedFunction as Terminal;
    brCn = arrBridges[2].BridgeSegments[0].Conn;
    if (other != NULL && brCn != NULL)
    	// The _level3_ terminal - the third level of the multi-level terminal - is connected with the _other_ terminal
    	// through the _brCn_ connection.
    Public Fields
    Public FieldAn array of all bridge connections (i.e. segments) that the bridge consists of.  
    Public FieldOne of the terminal connected by the bridge.  
    Public Properties
    Public PropertyReturns information whether the bridge is 'vertical', i.e. whether it connects only different levels of the same multi-level terminal. Note: this property is valid only if the bridge object has been obtained through the TerminalStrip.Bridges_Split property of a terminal strip object. Otherwise, this property returns FALSE.  
    Public PropertyA Terminal.Bridge.Kinds of the bridge (i.e. internal, external or small).  
    Public PropertyAn array of all terminals that the bridge connects.  
    Public PropertyA type of the bridge. Corresponds to the function definition tag of the bridge's connections.
