AHELP for CIAO 4.10 ChIPS v1


Context: frames


Delete the specified frame.





The function arguments.

Argument Description
id A ChipsId structure identifying the item, or a string containing the name of the object.

If no argument is given then the current frame is deleted, otherwise the argument determines what to delete.

There is also a delete_all_frames command, which removes all frames from the specified window(s). It is equivalent to the command delete_frame("all").


Example 1

chips> add_frame(0.1, 0.1, 0.5, 0.5, ["bgcolor", "red"])
chips> delete_frame()

Create a frame, then delete it.

Example 2

chips> id = ChipsId()
chips> add_frame()
chips> set_frame(["bgcolor",cornflower"])
chips> add_frame()
chips> set_frame(["bgcolor",yellow"])
chips> id.frame = "frm1"
chips> delete_frame(id)

Two frames are created; the second frame is current after it is created. The id.frame command sets the frame value of the ChipsId structure to the first frame, which has the id "frm1" by default. That frame is then deleted.

Example 3

chips> add_frame(.1, .1, .5, .5,"id=data06")
chips> set_frame(["bgcolor","tan"])
chips> add_frame(.5, .5, .9, .9,"id=data05")
chips> set_frame(["bgcolor","white"])
chips> delete_frame("all")

Two frames are created, then the delete_frame command deletes them both.

Example 4

chips> add_frame(.1,.1,.9,.5,'bgcolor=gray')
chips> add_frame(.1,.5,.9,.9,'bgcolor=mediumblue')
chips> delete_all_frames()

Delete all the frames that were created.
