Description:
Creates a dialog that allows the user to interactively create a symbol, enter the parameter values and place the new symbol on the model. For general information on dialogs see the Dialog Generator Manual.
The parameters listed in the following section define the symbol specific part of the dialog.
Other parameters necessary to create a symbol (like reference element, docuplane, orientation ...) are added automatically.

Parameters:
:name {STRING} - The Lisp symbol of the created dialog.
:title {STRING} - A title that will appear in the top border of the dialog window. If not specified, the title is derived from name.
:variables {PROPERTY-LIST}
Specifies the dialog variables. Each property of a variable is specified by a keyword and its value. The variables list is described in the Dialog Generator Manual. The default value is nil.
:save-variables {LIST OF SYMBOLS}
This attribute specifies which of the :variables will be saved as symbol variables. These variables will be used for editing the symbol. The default value is nil.
:position-prompt {STRING}
A text that appears in the prompt area while the user places the symbol on the model. If no position-prompt is specified, the default string is "Identify position for symbol".
:local-functions {LISP-form}
The definition of all local functions of the dialog. The definition of a local function follows the same rules as the definition of a LISP function by means of defun. See the Dialog Generator Manual for more information. The default value is nil.
:draw-symbol-command {LISP-form}
Contains all function calls which are necessary to draw the symbol, i.e. to create the symbol parameters, geometry and texts. :draw-symbol-command may contain any number of the functions described within this page. The default value is nil.
:mutual-exclusion {LISP-form}
The mutual-exclusion list ensures that a value is assigned to only one of its variables at one time. In the symbol dialog menu a diamond shaped indicator shows which variable holds a value. Selecting another variable from this list will cause the indicator highlight the new variable and at the same time will remove the value from the old variable. See the Dialog Generator Manual for further information. The default value is nil.
:help-action {LISP-form}
Clicking the help button executes the help-action for the customized symbol. See the Dialog Generator Manual for more information. The default value is nil.
:reference-selection-3d {LIST of focus-type}
reference-selection-3d specifies what kinds of items are allowed to be selected as reference element. The default corresponds to the focus-types allowed for the creation of a generic text. These are edges (2D and 3D), faces, parts, assemblies and workplanes).
:symbol-type {One of :surface, :welding or :general}
symbol-type defines the set of settings (like color, ...) used for the newly created symbol
:install-function {LISP-form}
If you want to use the symbol in 3D Documentation AND in Annotation you can specify all the parameters above in a separate install-function. This install-function can then be accessed via sd-doc3d-create-symbol-dialog and sd-am-create-symbol-dialog. See examples.

Return value:
nil

(in-package :my-package)
(use-package :oli)
