Identifier of the type to assign to this element.
Return ValueThe new element id if new element is created, or InvalidElementId if the element's type changed without creating a new element.
In rare cases, applying a change in type will result in a new element being created. The only active examples of this are when applying a normal wall type to a curtain panel, or converting such a wall back to a curtain panel. In this situation the new element id is returned. Also, this element becomes invalid.
