Celestia/Celx Scripting/CELX Lua Methods/CEL command splitview


splitview { view <viewnumber> type <splittype> position <splitpos> }

Split the view for the specified <viewnumber> horizontal or vertical at the specified position.


view <viewnumber>
A number, identifying the view on the screen to be split. Default is 1.
Must be a valid identifier, regarding the number of views on the screen, otherwise no split will be performed.
type <splittype>
String used to determine in which direction the screen must be split. Default is "V".
Must be:
  • "H" for a horizontal split.
  • "V" for a vertical split.
position <splitpos>
Where to split the view as a percent number between 0 (left/down) and 1 (right/up). Default is 0.5 (in the middle).

CELX equivalent:

Based on the observer:splitview() method.

  • Get observer instance of the active view instance (within a Multi view) and split it.
obs = celestia:getobserver()
obs:splitview(<splittype>, <splitpos>)

-- OR --

  • Get observer instances of all views and split the view with identifier <viewnumber>.
observers = celestia:getobservers()
observers[<viewnumber>]:splitview(<splittype>, <splitpos>)

Split the actual (single) view in the middle vertically.


splitview { view 1 type "V" position 0.5}


obs = celestia:getobserver()
obs:splitview("V", 0.5)
