4.20 Plug-in loading and instantiation

Plug-in instantiation is similar to simulation instantiation but with the following differences:

  • Plug-ins can be instantiated more than once. When plugin_instantiate() is called on a plug-in factory, it creates an instance of the plug-in, but the factory instance remains, allowing multiple instances of the plug-in to be created with the same or different parameter values.
  • The parameter names that are given by plugin_getInstantiationParameterInfo() are not hierarchical, but are relative to the plug-in instance. They are the same as the parameter names returned by calling resource_getList() on the plug-in instance.
