  • Chapter - Graphics g-window properties related to the canvas

    A graphics g-window has a g-canvas called the associated canvas.

    [We can say that a g-window "frames" a canvas, or that a canvas "is shown in" a g-window.]

    Showedness relates a g-canvas (called B) to a g-window (called A) when B is the associated canvas of A. The verb to be shown in implies the showedness relation.

    The verb to frame (he frames, they frame, he framed, it is framed, he is framed) implies the reversed showedness relation.

    A g-window has a truth state called oversize scaling. The oversize scaling of a g-window is usually false.
