1. Enhancements to the Lamp widget in Common Graphics

The lamp widget, which displays a LED-like image with user-selectable
colors, on and off states, a variety of shapes, and customizable
labels and borders, has been enhanced in release 8.1. Among the
changes is better support for arrays of lamps, which now allows the
individual lamps to have their own on-color and off-color. New
functions also allow better labeling of the lamps in the
array. Finally, support is provided for placing lamps in
grid-widgets. See the description of the lamp widget for details and a
code example, which creates the following window with a simple lamp
widget plus a more complex lamp widget that contains a labeled array
of lamp images (some of which, as you will see if you run the example,
are blinking).
