In this tutorial, we will learn about Flowgorithm Function Manager. As the name suggests we can manage user-defined functions in the flowchart using this component.
Function Manager allows us to create, edit and delete user-defined functions or procedures in the
flowchart. The simple way to launch the Function manager windows is to click on the two ovals icon beside the Main in the icon toolbar.
We can also launch this component using the following Program menu option
Program ->> Function Manager…
We can perform many actions related to function on this window. The following things that can be performed are as follows:
The Function Manager GUI (Graphical User Interface) components are as follows:
|Function Manager Icon||Name||Description|
|Function Manager||This will launch the Function Manager GUI.|
|Add||We can create and add a new function to the Flowgorithm flowchart.|
|Edit||This button allows us to edit and modify the function definition. We can change the parameters, their data types, and the return type of the function.|
|Import||This allows us to import functions from other Flowgorithm flowcharts into the current flowchart. This allows code reusability.|
|Cut||We can delete the function from the flowchart.|
|Copy||This allows us to copy the function so that we can paste it to recreate the function.|
|Paste||This button allows us to paste the copied function.|
To create a new function or procedure, click on the Add button.
Specify the function name, function parameters, and the return type.
To edit the function, select the function and click on the Edit button.
To delete the function, select the function from the list ad click on the Cut button. Click on the Done button.
We can import function from other Flowgorithm flowchart (.fprg) files into the present flowchart. This approach allows us to reuse the function that is already defined by other programmers/students.
