Details

addComponent adds a Java object of class Component to a container (usually an RDialog or SimpleRDialog). the location of the component is determined by the top, right, bottom, and left arguments, which are numbers between 1 and 1000 indicating the distance from either the top (or left) of the container, with 1000 indicating the opposite side of the container. Each side can be constrained in three different ways. If the Type is "REL", the side will scale proportional to the container when the container is resized. If it is "ABS", it is not rescaled. If it is "NONE", the location of that side is determined by the componet's preferred size, which can be set with the "setPreferedSize" method.

getSize gets the height and width

setSize sets the height and width

execute executes a character representing a command, as if it were entered into the console
