Pmg objects

The Pmg object is an object that can be created in the graphics editor. It is the basic construction element of the PROMOTIC system application panel (of the PmaPanel object). By means of Pmg objects an application panel can be created that serves for the visualization of data, for entering values, controlling, etc.
The Pmg object can be inserted into the panel from the "Pmg objects preconfigurations" window.

Basic terms:
Window Pmg object: This object creates its own sub-window (this window has the same dimensions as the object itself) when drawing the panel whose parent is the window where the whole panel is drawn. That's why the window Pmg objects always overlap all common Pmg objects on the desktop independently on the background in which they were constructed.
Limitation when creating compound Pmg objects: objects cannot be nested into window Pmg objects.
A list of the window Pmg objects: PmgActiveX, PmgWEdit, PmgWCheck, PmgWCombo, PmgFrame and PmgVideo.
Selected Pmg objects: This object is bound by a set of points (2 to 8 according to the object type) in the shape of small squares. There can be more marked objects together. The selected object can be at the same time even the active object. How to mark Pmg objects - see: Basic control of the graphics editor.
Active Pmg object: It is an object on which the mouse cursor was placed in a moment of pressing by the left or by the right mouse button. The name of this object is written to the status line on each change of the mouse cursor. The active Pmg object can be the selected object at the same time.
