Opens a child panel in an arbitrary module.


void ChildPanelOnModule(string FileName, string PanelName, string ModuleName, dyn_string Parameter, int x, int y);


Parameter Meaning
FileName File name of the child panel that is opened
PanelName Name with which the panel is opened
ModuleName Name of the module in which the panel is opened
Parameters List of the $ parameters that are passed to the child panel
x, y Position at which the child panel is opened

Return Value



Opens the panel "PanelName" that is stored under the name "FileName" as a child panel. The list of the $ parameters are transferred to the child panel. The child panel is opened at the position x, y. Before the panel is opened a check is made as to whether this panel is already open (isPanelOpen()). The size ratio between child and parent panel is 1 (scale = 1). If the size of the parent panel is changed, the child panel is not scaled to the new size.

A child panel can not be resized. The only exception to this is the use of Layout Management in the child panel.


Opens the panel "ChildPanel" with the name "Testpanel" in the current module at the position 300, 100. The function also passes the dollar parameters "first" and "example" to the child panel.

  string strvar = "example";
  int x, y;
  x = 300;
  y = 100;
  "Testpanel", myModuleName(),
  makeDynString("$p1:first", "$p2:"+strvar),x,y);

Since you passed dollar parameters, you can call , for example,

DebugN($p1); and

DebugN($p2); in the child panel.

The first definition DebugN($p1); returns the string "def"; and the second definition the string "example";.
