Object Hierarchy | Related C++ Class: Application
The Application object is the base class for the XSIApplication object. This object provides some general information about the Application and XSIApplication provides additional Softimage-specific methods and properties. Script writers normally do not deal with an instance of Application; instead they use the global object called "Application", which is actually an instance of XSIApplication.
From Netview there is no global object available of type XSIApplication so normally the script creates this object (by creating the COM object with ProgID "XSI.Application") and then calls SIObject.Application on the returned object to retrieve an instance of XSIApplication. This approach is demonstrated in the examples in for the XSIApplication object.
