The following sections describe how to use the UaModeler to add and modify different types of nodes to the model.

This section provides the following parts:

Creating Subtypes

Creating subtypes is a very powerful feature known from object-oriented programming languages. Subtypes inherit the members and the character of their parents. A subtype is linked to its parent with an is-a-relationship.

In OPC UA this concept of inheritance is provided, too. As a result of this, instances of ObjectTypes and VariableTypes receive all comonents of their parent.

With the UaModeler, all types you can create are subtypes, you cannot create your own types organized by a folder like the ObjectTypes folder.
