Creating a Model Element by Pattern
From RAD Studio
Go Up to Applying Pattern Procedures Index
You can apply patterns for creation of new model elements using the Node by Pattern button in the Tool Palette or using the Create by Pattern context menu command.
To create model elements by pattern:
- On the diagram Tool Palette, choose the Node by Pattern button.
- Click in the container, where you want to add an element by pattern. This can be either the diagram background or a node element. The Pattern Wizard opens. Notice that the Pattern Wizard shows patterns filtered according to the context (container) in which it is activated.
- In the Pattern Wizard select the desired pattern, modify its properties and click OK.
Tip: Alternatively, right-click the target container and choose Create by Pattern on the context menu.
