Default Dashboard design options, grouping or multi select possible?

I made an input dashboard with several edit boxes and static text boxes, in total about 20 or 25 objects. Now I want to add an extra editbox in between, but I can only move the dashboard objects one by one, which is very clumsy....

Is there a way to group dashboard objects, so I can move them all at once? Or is it possible to select multiple objects simultaneously?

Hello Timo,

I haven't found a button or function you are looking for. But you find the objects of the Dashboard in the viewtree:

VIEW:/active/MainPanel/BackPanel/SplitterXPane/SplitterYPane/SplitterXPane/TabPane/TabControl/Dashboard/GraphPanel/
Each of the objects under that node have their own spatial nodes. The value can you increment with a script.

For example the following script increments the vertical position by 10 points down for all objects which are behind the selected object so().
You find the Selected Object function in the context menu in the tree Edit>Designate This Node (so). The mouse pointer must be over a node.


Code:
int begin = getrank(so());
int end = content(up(so));// set a value for the amount following items in the view tree you want to move, then begin should be 1
treenode txt = so();
for (begin; begin <= end;begin++)
{
    inc(spatialy(txt),10);// move the object by 10 down / -10 up
    txt = next(txt);
} 
refreshview(up(so())); // refresh the view to applied changes
Jörg
