GUILoad

GUILoad[src]
loads an interface definition and returns immediately with a GUIObject result.
GUILoad[src, args]
passes arguments to the interface definition.
  • To use GUILoad, you first need to load GUIKit using Needs["GUIKit`"].
  • GUILoad performs the same first steps as GUIRun and GUIRunModal, but stops short of actually displaying the interface to the user.
  • GUILoad returns a GUIObject expression representing the live interface instance.
  • GUILoad is useful for manipulating the interface definition before calling GUIRun or GUIRunModal and also for loading classes and preparing the interface in advance to reduce the eventual display time.
  • src can be a filename, a user interface expression definition, an XMLDocument interface expression, or a GUIObject.
  • If arguments are included, they are passed as arguments to the interface definition and are available from the widget registry through the names "##", "#1", "#2", and so forth.
  • The following options can be given:
ReleaseMethodAutomaticdetermines when a GUIObject is released
IncludedScriptContexts{}extends the active $ContextPath that Script blocks use
