Adds the list of gadgets to the gadget list of the given window or requester linked in at the position in the list specified by the position argument.

See AddGadget() for more information about gadget list position, and more information about gadgets in general.

The requester parameter will be ignored unless the GTYP_REQGADGET bit is set in the GadgetType field of the first gadget in the list. In that case, the gadget list is added to the requester gadgets.

Note: be sure that GTYP_REQGADGET is either set or cleared consistently for all gadgets in the list.

Note also: The window parameter should point to the window that the requester (will) appear in.

Will add Numgad gadgets from gadget list linked by the field TGadget.NextGadget, or until some TGadget.NextGadget field is found to be nil. Does not assume that the Numgad'th gadget has TGadget.NextGadget equal to nil.

Note well: In order to link your gadget list in, the TGadget.NextGadget field of the Numgad'th (or last) gadget will be modified. Thus, if you are adding the first 3 gadgets from a linked list of five gadgets, this call will sever the connection between your third and fourth gadgets.

The gadgets will just be added. To make them visible, you must refresh the window or the gadgets.
