Add a menu item into the Xcos "Tools" menu.


xcosAddToolsMenu(label, command)


Add a menu into Xcos with a scilab command. The scilab command can assume that there is two variable on the current scilab context :

  • blk : The selected block. Variable does not exist if nothing is selected. The variable has a scicos_block type.

  • scs_m : The whole diagram. The variable has a scicos_diagram type.

This function has been introduced in Scilab 5.4.0.

xcosAddToolsMenu("print plop", "disp(''plop'')");
xcosAddToolsMenu("print selected block", "disp(blk)");
xcosAddToolsMenu("print diagram", "disp(scs_m)");

// define a custom update function
function myUpdateFunction(blk, scs_m)
    execstr("[ok, blk] = " + blk.gui + "(''set'', blk);");
xcosAddToolsMenu("update block", "myUpdateFunction(blk, scs_m)");
