The ined create command allows to create new tkined objects. The
ined create NODE command creates a new node object and does not require
any arguments. The node will appear with the built-in default icon and
the default name. Its initial position is the upper left corner.
The ined create NETWORK command creates a new network object. Coordinates
for the fixed points of the network object can be defined by providing
the optional coordinates. Tkined will use the default coordinates 0 0 130
0 if you do not specify any coordinates.
The ined create LINK command creates a new link object. The mandatory
parameters define the two objects that are connected by the new link object.
Link objects find their position based on the position of the nodes connected
by this link. It is possible to specify additional fixed points that will
be respected by the link positioning algorithm.
The ined create GROUP command creates a new group object. Optional parameters
define the ids of all objects that are becoming members of the new group
object. The position of the group object will be deter-mined by the position
of its members. The position is the upper left corner if there are no members.
The ined create TEXT command creates a new text object. Text objects
are always created at the upper left corner and simply display the string
given in the mandatory parameter. Note, the string may contain newline
characters if they are written as \n.
The ined create IMAGE command creates background images that are read
from the file name given in the mandatory argument. Images are positioned
at the upper left corner. The file name must point to a valid X11 bitmap
The ined create MENU command creates a new menu object. The menu object
appears in the menu bar. The first mandatory argument defines the name
of the menu as shown in the menu bar. The command arguments will pop up
when the menu is opened and correspond to Tcl procedures that are called
when a menu entry is selected.
The ined create INTERPRETER command creates a new interpreter object
which starts an additional application. The mandatory argument specifies
which program or script is to be started.
The ined create LOG command creates a new log object which can be used
to display texts. The new output window automatically pops up on the screen.
The ined create REFERENCE command creates a reference object that points
to other tkined maps. The address attribute can point to local map files
or remote map files by using FTP URLs.
The ined create STRIPCHART, ined create BARCHART and ined create GRAPH
commands create stripchart, barchart or graph objects. They can use by
applications to display status and monitoring information. They behave
much like node objects but they are not allowed to have links.
