Legion GUI Icons


Context Icon
Move Change the object's context name and delete the old name from context space. This does not actually move the object, but changes its name. Note that an object can have multiple context names, assigned by you or by any other Legion user. Move will not affect any other context names that have been assigned to the object by you or any other user.
Alias Assign another context name to the selected object. Clicking this option brings up a new window to enter in the new name. The new name will be placed in the current context unless you use a full context path. Another object icon, with the new context name but referring to the same object, will appear in the appropriate context.
Get Interface View the selected object's interface. The information will appear in a separate window.
Get Attributes View the selected object's attributes. The information will appear in a separate window.
Destroy Destroy a selected context name and possibly its associated object. A new window will appear (figure 4) offering two options: if you choose Remove Path, the context name will be destroyed but the object will remain, but if you choose Remove Path and Object both the name and the object will be destroyed.
