Add own Shapes

Since NagVis 1.x you can add "stateless Icons" to your maps, we call them shapes. These icons are completely like the other icons, they just have no state.

What is a shape?

A shape is nothing else than a simple image. We recommend to use PNG as format for the shapes.

Which programme should I use to create a shape?

Almost every graphic art software has the ability to build PNG-files.

Implementing the shape

The shapes are placed in nagvis/images/shapes. Just copy them to this directory, then you can use them in your maps.

The test

Open one of your maps and add a new shape-icon. You should now be able to select your own shapes.
