Object types in a dialog

Since the dialog editor handles different dialog formats which provide (slightly) different object types and functionality, and template objects and models are treated like their own object type, the available object types can differ between dialog resource files.

In general, three basic object types are distinguished:

Objects are chosen from the Object Palette. It provides all "native" objects provided by the current dialog file format and additional objects that are defined in a template file ("models"). The available object types depend on what is supported by the dialog file format of the active dialog window. The name is included in the title bar of the Object Palette.

The icons in front of the object type name indicate the general group to which the object belongs.
