Try ACAPI_Element_SetCategoryValue for position and structural function.

The ID is stored in the element memo - you can change it there.

Thank you! I was able to set position and structural function with ACAPI_Element_SetCategoryValue.

Now I'm looking the element memo structure in the docs, but I can't figure out where is the ID stored ?
