Functional Details

This module differs from Collect, CollectNamed, CollectMultiGrid, and CollectSeries, which create a new Group with the specified Objects as members. For example, if the input to the module is a series with four members, the output will be a series with four + n members, where n is the number of objects specified.

specifies additional information to be associated with the appended Object. For a named Group, this could be the name of the member. For a Series, it is the series position value. If input is a series, then id is a required parameter. Otherwise, it is optional.

A single Append module can specify a maximum of 21 object-id pairs. In the user interface, the default number of enabled parameter tabs is two. (Tabs can be added to the module icon and removed with the appropriate ...Input Tab options in the Edit pull-down menu of the VPE.)


All components are propagated to the output.
