Is it possible to set the title of a Graph window?

Using the graphical user interface to build and exercise models. Includes customizing the GUI by writing a little bit of hoc.

Is it possible to set the title of a Graph window?

Post by joe1234 »

Hi,
I'm making graphs in the NEURON GUI (programmatically, via hoc) of the parameters of my home-made NMODL schemes. I would like to be able to change the window titles from the default such as "Graph[0] x-50:550 ..." to a title of my own. I haven't found anything through heavy searching of the documentation etc, so maybe it simply isn't an available feature?
Thanks for any help!

Good question.

Wrap the Graph inside an HBox or a VBox.
Example:

Code: Select all

objref vb, g
vb = new VBox()
vb.intercept(1)
g = new Graph()
vb.intercept(0)
vb.map("Your Title Here")
For more info, see the documentation of VBox

Thanks a lot Ted, that works beautifully! (I'm working on Windows XP)
BTW, the programmer's ref says it doesn't work under MS Windows (http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/stati ... x.html#map)

I just tried labeling a VBox under XP and sure enough, it works quite well. Thanks for tipping
me off, Joe. That bug is probably from before the MSWin version started using cygwin, so
the documentation will need updating.
