Place instances on an application window

The view for creating an instance is the object box view. Select ((menu:View >> ObjectBox)) to pop it up.

The following figure shows the object box view.

If you move the mouse pointer over the icons in the object box view, it shows its class name and some description in a balloon help. You can drag and drop an icon to the instance of the application window which is displayed.

See the section:[How to see the list of the application windows]. After displaying the application window, drag the icon and drop it on the instance to place the object.

The following shows the kinds of objects.

Kind Description
Windows Top windows or dialogs which receive a border from the window manager
Forms Areas which have window resources and manage child objects
Commands Objects which have various functions, and do not have window resources
Imported Objects which are imported by the external libraries

We call the object which manages child instances "Manager". The following shows manager objects.
