DM2000 is a standard MDI application, like other popular desktop applications: it consists of main window (MDI frame) and a number of child windows (document, or data windows). Thus, while IDMApplication interface represents main application window and has a collection of document windows, IDMDocument interface provides access to document windows. Every document window, in turn, has three child objects: invisible data container and two visible "interiors": worksheet and plot, both used to display container's data. Note that all appropriate coclasses except DMApplication are hidden - you cannot explicitly create instances of DMDocument, DMContainer, DMWorksheet and so on, but you have access to these objects via properties of another objects.
Change window caption. Don't mix window caption and file name, associated with data container object! To modify file name you should change appropriate property of DMContainer. This property may be changed from UI by Window|Rename command and implicitly by File|Save As command.
This property controls window view. It can have one of the following values:
- dwsWorksheet = $00000000 - only worksheet is visible;
- dwsPlot = $00000001 - only plot is visible;
- dwsBoth = $00000002 - both worksheet and plot are visible.
Setting this property is equal to appropriate UI commands from View menu.
Return reference to DMContainer object.
Return reference to DMWorksheet object.
Return reference to DMPlot object.
As long as DM2000 is MDI application, one needs a way to select document window for recording data from experimental program. Moreover, although you can write data to any number of windows simultaneously, user wishes to have a visual feedback - "recording" window usually must looks differently. To solve this problem you can set window's IsRecording property. In addition, this property used by IDMApplication.RecordPoint() method.
Only one of MDI child windows may be active, that is, has input focus. This procedure makes document window active. Note that activation can change index of document in IDMApplication.Documents property.
This procedure closes document window. It is similar to File|Close menu command.
This method simply copies contents of data container into another container - Undo Buffer. It is recommended that you will call SaveUndoInfo before any data changes, especially if you modify a range of lines simultaneously. Note that if container has many lines this operation takes a time, and it displays its progress in status line.
