Many of the new features appeared, one do not maybe use them because we ignore that they exist what is pity

Could we have the functions which were added since the last version of the help ?
There are certainly interesting functions, but we do not know them

Okay, here's a list - not sure how complete it is though


Element methods

elem:UpdateState() -- force the state rules to be recomputed
elem:Repaint() -- force a repaint

elem:BringToFront()
elem:BringForward()
elem:SendToBack()
elem:SendBackward() -- these 4 methods let you change the Z-order of elements (note that these only apply while the current page is displayed - if you reload the page they will return to their original positions.

elem:GetScheme() -- returns a Scheme object - see later
elem:GetUnboundName() -- returns the raw name of the element - e.g. if you have an element with a <^> part then this will be included as such in the name of the element.
elem:GetPath() -- returns the path from the root of the page for the element
elem:GetUnboundPath() -- returns the path from the root of the page in unbound form
elem:GetIDTag() -- returns the ID tag for the element

Scheme methods (a scheme is returned by elem:GetScheme())

r, g, b = scheme:GetForeground()
r, g, b = scheme:GetBackground() -- return the foreground and background colours as individual RGB colours

scheme:SetForeground(r, g, b, [a])
scheme:SetBackground(r, g, b, [a]) -- set the foreground and background colours of the scheme from r, g, b, and optional alpha parameters. Note that currently the alpha parameter isn't supported. You should call elem:Repaint() to force an element to be redrawn after changing a scheme.
