For a while I've been thinking about this. I wanted to use a custom component that I could run inside ABM to try and explain my follow up post on Harri's thread. The discussion has been about the 'template' and on continuing with the video posted there about ABM, took a look back before I delve into the other crucial things.

You can find the article.

Below is the image used there and the source code of generating it. Ok, this is just to show off the power of what one can do with ABM.

Anyway, this is how this looks as posted in that article and here is the code of how it came into being...

NB: Whilst developing this component I ran into a snag and AB checked it out for me. It is flawed indeed and I am sure there is something better that I can use. After I used his recommendations about the errors I made, it helped me to finalize it.

The SimpleDiagram itself is based on a premise of a GRID. Everything you see sits on a RC cordinate system. In other news, this made me think of a joining-the-dots app for my kids.

Hi: @Mashiane:AddCellOS not in MashSimpleDiagram.bas
To avoid confusion even with myself I renamed the method to AddCellRCOS for Row,Cell,Offset,Size. Here is the updated source code..

Explaining Offsets

B4X:
Sub Offsets
    Dim offset As MashSimpleDiagram
    offset.Initialize(page,"offset",12,12,62,True)
   
    offset.AddBox(1,1,12,1)
    offset.AddLabel1(1,1,$".AddCells12(1,"") i.e. 1R=12C"$)
   
    offset.AddCellRCOS(2,1,1,11)
    offset.AddLabel1(2,2,$".AddCellOS(1,1,1,1,11,11,11,"") i.e. 1+11=12"$)

    offset.AddCellRCOS(3,1,2,10)
    offset.AddLabel1(3,3,$".AddCellOS(1,2,2,2,10,10,10,"") i.e. 2+10=12"$)

    offset.AddCellRCOS(4,1,0,2)
    offset.AddCellRCOS(4,3,8,2)
    offset.AddLabel1(4,3,$".AddCellOS(1,0,0,0,2,2,2,"").AddCellOS(1,8,8,8,2,2,2,"")"$)
   
    offset.AddLabel1(5,4,$"i.e. 2+8+2=12"$)
   
    page.Cell(2,1).AddComponent(offset.ABMComp)
   
End Sub

Yes,very good Thank you,How to change theme?
I didnt go that far my friend. It it is has some style properties but I havent been able to figure out how to make them work yet. It's a not so perfect component anyway, thus the willingness not to explore it any further. I will see what I can achieve tonight, perhaps will be lucky...

Hi Mashiane: Thank you all,I find the SimpleDiagram-0.2.css , can change color
as follows:
svg.simple-diagram .box {
fill: rgb(255, 255, 255);
fill-opacity: 0.5;
stroke: #FFF;
stroke-width: 0px;
shape-rendering: crispEdges;
}
