Creating a compound block

When you create a compound block, connectors are attached to the compound block for each of the following situations:

      All unsatisfied connectors on the internal blocks (except global variables)

      All satisfied connectors to external blocks

To create a compound block

1.    Select the blocks to be encapsulated.

2.    Choose Edit > Create Compound Block, or right-click one of the selected blocks and choose Create Compound from the pop-up menu.

3.    Under Compound Name, enter a name. Avoid using the dot (.) character in the name; it is used to separate compound block names in the title bar. The default name is Compound.

4.    You can apply protection to the compound block, select a picture for the compound block, or hide the block in display mode.

5.    Click OK, or press ENTER.
