This class handles Revit links.

Revit links must be loaded from a path accessible to Revit. Server implementors should provide Revit with a ModelPath representing a location from which to load the link. Revit will handle the actual file loading.

Servers which represent non-local file locations will need to create their own implementation for copying or moving files to a Revit-accessible location.

The link data path used for link loading may be different from the path displayed to the user. The link data path represents the literal location of the file, whereas the link's display path represents what the user sees as the name of the link. See [!:Autodesk::Revit::DB::ExternalResourceReference::InSessionPath] for more details on display paths.
