Return Value



Opens a panel in the parent panel "ParentName". The own root panel can be determined with the function rootPanel(). Except for the additional parameters the function behaves just like ChildPanelOn(). Before the panel is opened a check is made as to whether this panel has already been opened (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.pnl" with the name "Testpanel" in the own parent panel at the position 300, 100. Dollar parameters are also passed to the child panel.

  string strvar = "example";
  int x, y;
  x = 300;
  y = 100;
  "Testpanel", rootPanel(),
  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); shows the string "first"; and the second definition the string "Example".
