An identifier of this style template.
property Id: TRVStyleTemplateId;
Value of this property is generated automatically using a random number generator. Each item has an identifier that is unique in the collection.
Different style template collections may have equal values of identifiers of some items by a coincidence, however it does not mean that these style templates are related (unless the collection was duplicated using AssignStyleTemplates with CopyIds=True).
This property is used to refer to this style template within a single TRVStyle component:
▪another style template may refer to this style-template using ParentId property;
▪another style template may refer to this style-template using NextId property;
Why do style templates need two unique properties, Id and Name? There are the following reasons:
▪editing style templates in a dialog window: if a user renames a style template, all references to this style template must stay unchanged;
▪working with integer values is more efficient than with strings.
This property is not copied when assigning one style template to another.
