The Editor object provides access to the purely graphical properties and methods of Chart objects. Each Chart object has its own Editor object.
You cannot directly create or destroy the Editor and Clipboard objects as you do other Stateflow® API objects. However, you can attach a handle to them to use their properties and methods for modifications to Stateflow charts.
When you create a chart, an Editor object is automatically created for it. If
ch is a workspace handle to a chart, you create a handle to
the Editor object for that chart with this command:
ed = ch.Editor;
Use the handle
ed from the preceding example to access the
Editor object properties and methods. For example, this command calls the
zoomIn method to zoom in the chart by a factor of 20%:
Or, you can simply set the
ZoomFactor property to an absolute
zoom factor of 150%:
ed.ZoomFactor = 1.5;
ZoomFactor is based on a Dots Per Inch (DPI) of 72. If your
screen DPI is different, for example 96, and you want to change the zoom level of
the chart, you must to scale your
ZoomFactor accordingly. For
example, if you want 100%, you would set the
You can also use an Editor object to change the window position of the Stateflow Editor. For more information, see Stateflow.Editor.
