Default How to load a *.t file into a node with commands/code?

I saved a *.t file of a node via the right click menu in the tree Node / Save Node as…

Now I like to load this *.t file into a node of another model. Via the right click menu in the tree I would just use Node / Load into Node…
But how can I do this with a command.

I found the commands loadselectedfromfile() and saveselectedtofile(). But how can I pointer in loadselectedfromfile() to the *.t file on my hard drive?

I searched for the right click menu in the tree (main and view), but did not find it. Where can I find this menu? If I would find the menu I had the commands and would know how to do it.

Thanks in advance for any help and hints.

Tom, I am not sure if this is what you are looking for, but check this: embedfile

BTW: 'embedfile' in the previous post is not a link. embedfile is a standard flexsim function and you can find it in the manual of flexsim.

This is what the manual says:

embedfile(num mode, str projectpath, str filepath)
Description:
This command is used to embed a file in a node. mode can take the following values, 1=embed, 2=extract, 3=remove.
Example:
Undocumented

Try the cmdloadtree and cmdsavetree commands.

It looks like that cmdloadtree() is doing the job, so I did not try embedfile(), because it is not documented and the other solution works.

I am still curious to know where I can find the right-click menu and commands, because then I could look up and understand other functionality.
Does anyone have an idea where to find this?

The tree's right-click menu is in the Flexsim engine. It is not visible or editable from the Flexsim content.
