FUNCTION vsoInsertWidget(
paramID  :LONGINT;
widgetType  :LONGINT;
mappingID  :LONGINT;
text  :STRING;
data  :LONGINT) :BOOLEAN;
def vs.vsoInsertWidget(paramID, widgetType, mappingID, text, data):
    return BOOLEAN

Parameters

paramID LONGINT
widgetType LONGINT
mappingID LONGINT
text STRING
data LONGINT

Remarks

This function inserts a widget into the OIP. It allows the user to define the location of where this widget will be in the OIP widget list.

paramID: The ID and location of where this widget will be displayed in the OIP. widgettype: Type of widget to create. mappingID: ordinal value of object parameter that corresponds to this widget. text: the label to be displayed on OIP for this widget. data: not implemented yet.

At least in 2008, there might be a bug in this call. The "mappingID" argument doesn't seem to be registering the index of the widget properly, and as a result, if the widget is a button, you won't get the proper index in the button click event. If somebody fully investigates this, and determines that it's a bug, he/she should enter a bug report.

vsoAppendWidget still works OK.

It looks like the problem occurs if you don't declare kObjXPropHasUIOverride (kObjXPropHasUIOverride is FALSE or not declared):

result := SetObjPropVS(kObjXPropHasUIOverride, TRUE);

Example

<pre>kOnInitPropertiesEventID: 
BEGIN
   resultStatus := SetObjPropVS(kObjectHasUIOverrideID, TRUE);
   resultStatus := vsoInsertParamWidget(1,1, 'Unused number', 0);
   resultStatus := vsoInsertParamWidget(2,2, 'Static Text Widget', 0);
   resultStatus := vsoInsertParamWidget(3,3, 'Enter junk here', 0);
   resultStatus := vsoInsertParamWidget(4,4, 'Previous static text', 0);
   resultStatus := vsoInsertWidget(5,kWidgetButton, 5,'Update Text', 0);
END;</pre>
