Active picture manipulation functions

Functions are used for the active picture within the frame in which the script is implemented. The name of each function begins with the string %HI_....

%HIX_  functions

Some %HI_ functions are also available in the %HIX_ version. These functions can redirect the function executing to another picture (through the first two parameters).

Example: Function %HI_ClosePicture() is available in %HIX_ClosePictur (IN HBJ _picHBJ, IN INT _KInstance). %HI_ClosePicture closes the picture in which it has been called. %HIX_ClosePicture closes the picture defined by HOBJ (internal object identifier) and instance. The meaning of HOBJ and instance is the same as it is in the case of RPC CALL (parameters objIdent and instanceExpr).

If function %HIX_ is applied, the ESL script must be implemented for the picture (it must be an Active picture).

The list of functions used for the work with the active picture

Active picture behaviour functions:

Functions for work with structures, whose values are partially distributed into the picture (optimization by means of indexed local variable). The partial distribution allows to reduce the set of updated rows (values of the rows) of structured variables and, in some cases, to reduce new values (sending according to the alteration method).

Popup menu manipulation functions:

HI menu manipulation functions:

Graph and Picture/Component (displayer) manipulation functions:



Picture/Component layers manipulation functions:

Picture/Component history manipulation functions:

Other functions:

All functions are executed in the picture in which they are called. E.g. calling the function %HI_ClosePicture() closes the picture in which the calling has been done.
