Details

The user can add to the menubar at start up time by defining a list that is called by gmenu. IBESTgui look for a variable pmg.user.menu. This is a list with named components. Each name becomes the menubar entry top level, and each component is called by gmenu to populate the menubar entry.

The functions pmg.add, pmg.gw, pmg.addMenubar, and pmg.eval are used to extend the GUI.

pmg.add

This is used to add a widget to the main notebook containing the dialogs

pmg.gw

This is used to add a ggenericwidget instance to the main notebook containing the dialogs. These widgets can be generated from a function name using the values from formals

pmg.addMenubar

Used to add top-level entries to the main menubar

pmg.eval

Used to send a command, as a string, to the Commands area to be evaluated. Evaluation is done in the global environment.
