GiD_Project set <option> ?<0|1>?
To set on off or ask the current state of some options, to control the redraw and wait state of GiD:
<option> could be disable_graphics|disable_windows|disable_warnline|disable_graphinput|disable_writebatch|waitstate|windows_layout
- GiD_Project set disable_graphics ?<0|1>?
The value 0/1 Enable/Disable Graphics (GiD does not redraw)
EXAMPLE to disable the redraw:
GiD_Project set disable_graphics 1
- GiD_Project set disable_windows ?<0|1>?
The value 0/1 Enable/Disable Windows (GiD displays, or not, windows which require interaction with the user)
EXAMPLE to disable the interaction windows:
GiD_Project set disable_windows 1
- GiD_Project set disable_warnline ?<0|1>?
The value 0/1 Enable/Disable printing messages in the lower messages bar.
- GiD_Project set disable_graphinput ?<0|1>?
The value 0/1 Enable/Disable GraphInput (enable or disable peripherals: mouse, keyboard, ...)
EXAMPLE to disable the peripherals input:
GiD_Project set disable_graphinput 1
- GiD_Project set disable_writebatch ?<0|1>?
The value 0/1 Enable/Disable writting the batch file that records the commands send to be processed.
- GiD_Project set waitstate ?<0|1>?
The value 0/1 Enable/Disable the Wait state (GiD displays a hourglass cursor in wait state)
EXAMPLE to set the state to wait:
GiD_Project set waitstate 1
Note: Usually these command are used jointly, to temporary disable redraws to accelerate the process.
It is recommended for a Tcl developer to use the more 'user-friendly' procedures defined inside the file 'dev_kit.tcl' (located in the \scripts directory). For example, to disable and enable redraws, you can use:
- GiD_Project set windows_layout ?<1 2LR 2UD 3L 3U 3R 3D 4>?
To set or ask the layout of the drawing windows
1-> 1 window
2LR -> 2 windows placed horizontally (Left-Right)
2UD -> 2 windows placed vertically (Up - Down)
3L -> 3 windows, the biggest on the Left
3U-> 3 windows, the biggest Up
3R -> 3 windows, the biggest on the Right
3D -> 3 windows, the biggest Down
4 -> 4 windows
