DEPRECATED: Draw the dynamicGraph window and slaves


The functions drawModel and redrawView within dynamicGraph is for adding models to dynamicGraph, for adding new views of a model, and for overwriting an existing view with an other model.

The functions can not be found at top level.

The functions are called by the methods addModel, addView, replaceModel, and replaceView.



An object of class DynamicGraph-class. NULL, or frameModels of list(...)$Arguments.


An object of class DynamicGraphModel-class. NULL, or frameViews of list(...)$Arguments. If frameViews is set to NULL, the default value, then a new model frame will be created by drawModel.


An object of class DynamicGraphView-class. If graphWindow is set to the value of list(...)$Arguments$graphWindow then the calling graph window will be redrawn. If graphWindow is set to NULL, the default value, then a new slave graph window will be drawn.


As for dynamicGraphMain. If dg is given (set to a value different from NULL) then this value is used, else the value extracted from list(...)$Arguments is used.


As for dynamicGraphMain. If object is given then this value is used, else the value extracted from list(...)$Arguments is used.


frameModelsEnv is then environment for storing hidden values of the frameModels. Extracted from frameModels by default.


Logical, if initialWindow is TRUE then the labels of the edges are updated.


Logical, if returnNewMaster is TRUE then ....


Logical, if redraw is TRUE then ....


Logical. If setUpdateCountModelMain is TRUE then views of the same model will be updated.


Logical, if returnFrameModel is TRUE then ....


Options for dynamicGraphMain, see dg.control.


Used to porting list(...)$Arguments.


The drawModel and redrawView functions can be called from the functions of menus (main menu and pop up menus) of dynamicGraphMain, from .GlobalEnv in DynamicGraph) via returned values from dynamicGraphMain (and from the methods of the model object in the scope of the function dynamicGraphMain). As a result the graph window will be redrawn with an other view of the model, possible with, e.g., other edges, an other model is drawn, or a new slave graph window will appear.

If the value of a argument to drawModel or redrawView is set, then this value is used, else the value from the calling window is used. The value of the calling window is given in the argument Arguments in the call of the function of the menu item.

Below is an example, where items for labeling all the edges of the graph are added to the menu. The edges are visited, a test is computed for each edge, the label and width of the edge is updated, and the graph is drawn with the updated edge list.


The returned value from dynamicGraphMain.


The functions can not be called from top level, that is, the functions does not exists at .GlobalEnv, but only in returned values from dynamicGraphMain.

It is recommended that the functions not are called, but that DynamicGraph is used with the arguments frameModels, frameViews, graphWindow, addModel, addView, and/or overwrite to call the functions.
