When you define a domain relationship between two ModelElements in your DSL Definition, the generated class is derived from ElementLink. Many relationships in the DSL runtime and designer are also ElementLinks.

ElementLinks are also ModelElements, and can therefore have properties and be connected by links.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
