comment How to specify a Tikz coordinate relative to a node?
@AndrewStacey The advantage of doing [right=of A] instead of (A.east), as you suggest, is that I can change the node distance and have the coordinate repositioned, or I can say directly things like [right=30mm of A]. Also a coordinate has no space, that's why I had to put [draw=none ... above.

@DJP I also found that file. I was looking around for a public database with lots of pictures just like those in that file, but yet I found none

comment Every non-label node in TikZ
@Jake: That would perhaps work if my nodes where defined has node[circle ... but I am defining every node/.style={ellipse, circular drop shadow, ...}, every label/.style={...}. Then I have \node[label=thelabel]{...} and the node is draw as an ellipse with a shadow, but its label is also an ellipse with a shadow ...

comment Every non-label node in TikZ
@percusse Well I have every node/.style={circular drop shadow} and this is afecting my labels too, and I don't know how to disable the shadow for labels ...

comment Specify which picture variant to show
I am using the same versions of PGF and Beamer, with MiKTeX 2.8 and SumatraPDF 1.9 to watch the results. Your solution makes perfect sense, but for some reason when I vary the argument to the inframe environment then I get always the same result: it only draws the first line corresponding to \draw<1-> ...

comment Specify which picture variant to show
I think another approach is to avoid overlay specifications alltogether and have some new macros based on \ifnum\iframe = #1 ... \fi that will choose among the image variants according to the value of \iframe. But I've not tested this yet.

comment Specify which picture variant to show
I tested your code on a new .tex file, with only this changes \begin{inframe}{3} \begin{tikzpicture} %\draw[use as bounding box] (0,0) rectangle (3,3); \draw<1-> (0,0) -- (3,3); \draw<2> (3,0) -- (0,3); \draw<3> (0,1) -- (3,1); \draw<4> (1,0) -- (1,3); \end{tikzpicture} \end{inframe} but it always draws the same picture dispite the overlay you choose (I am using pdflatex, don't know if this is relevant though).

comment Specify which picture variant to show
The problem with this solution is that in the other frame where I want to put my picture variant I have other overlay specifications, so these won't work if I do what you suggest

comment How to define macro that only makes argument substitution?
SORRY!!! MY MISTAKE!!! THAT IS NO SOLUTION, because it requires me to copy the code over and over, and what I want is too write a macro having the code once, and reuse it with different parameters in other places.

comment How to define macro that only makes argument substitution?
Since I am using frames with beamer, I had to put your code inside a \begin{frame}[fragile]\begin{mycode}{age}...\end{mycode}\end{frame} for it to work: and it worked brilliantly!!! Thanks!

Yes it is related, and it seems that that is the only solution as no one answers my question

Asking in another way: How can I redefine to which frame do PageUp and PageDown jump to?

comment How can I set the background color of the rows and columns of a matrix node in Tikz?
Brillant! You got it, albeit too complex code. Unfortunately, I don't have the TeX/LaTeX mastery to make your solution an extension to PGF or a .sty file. Thanks all you for your efforts. Cheers!

comment How can I set the background color of the rows and columns of a matrix node in Tikz?
@GonzaloMedina There is here some missundertanding: what I want is to have the nodes painted in white, and have all even rows and columns, say, in gray. For example, is it possible to make a checkers board with the matrix nodes, where some cells have colored checkers ? Hope I have helped to make this clear now.

comment How can I set the background color of the rows and columns of a matrix node in Tikz?
@AndrewStacey @GonzaloMedina What I want is a background color to the "whole" rows (or columns), for example, the even "whole" rows are yellow and the odd ones are gray, but the nodes may be blue, orange, etc, as their fill color.

It seems the code is not being pretty formatted here in this blog, perhaps I don't know how to type it better. Is there any special tag to envolve latex code to appear pretty in this blog's page?
