Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 8.2 *

maketoolbar


Generate the GUI layout window toolbar.

Shortcuts:

Menu item Options->Toolbar implements the command maketoolbar.

Usage:

maketoolbar frame_name

where frame_name is the Tk path name of a GUI layout window frame (e.g., ".layout1", ".layout2").

Summary:

The maketoolbar command generates the toolbar for the GUI layout window. The toolbar contains a set of buttons representing each layer type in the technology file. Each toolbar button has bindings for mouse buttons and keys to implement shortcut commands in magic. While the mouse pointer is inside the boundary of the toolbar button, the name of the layer represented by the toolbar is printed in the title bar of the window.


Figure 1. The GUI toolbar for the default scmos technology.
The default bindings for the toolbar buttons and the magic commands they invoke are as follows:
Button-1
see layername
Button-3
see no layername
Button-2
paint layername
Shift-Button-2
erase layername
Key-p
paint layername
Key-e
erase layername
Key-s
select more area layername
Key-S
select less area layername
The toolbar is not present on window startup due to timing problems with several window managers that prevents the correct measurement of window height.

Implementation Notes:

maketoolbar is implemented as a Tcl procedure in the GUI wrapper script.
