   26 #!N This interactor allows the user to interactively change vector values. 
   27 Through inputs to the module (outputs from other tools or values 
   28 set in its configuration dialog box) the interactor can be "data 
   29 driven." #!N #!N If the interactor is not data-driven, its attributes 
   30 (e.g.,  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   stringdata #!EF or  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   valuelist #!EF ) are taken 
   31 from its  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   Set Attributes... #!EF dialog box (accessed from the 
   32  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   Edit #!EF pull-down menu in the Control Panel). Note: The 
   33 module's control panel is invoked by double clicking on its icon 
   34 in the VPE window. Its configuration dialog box is accessed from 
   35 the  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   Edit #!EF pull-down menu in the same window. #!N 
   36 #!I0 #!N #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   data #!EF #!EF #!I50 
   37 #!N is the object from which the interactor can derive any 
   38 or all of the minimum, maximum, and delta attributes when their 
   39 corresponding input uses the default value (tab up). Initially, all inputs 
   40 are default values. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   refresh #!EF #!EF 
   41 #!I50 #!N resets the interactor so that the output is computed 
   42 from the current input. If  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   refresh #!EF = 0 (the 
   43 default), the output is recomputed only if the current output does 
   44 not lie within the range of the current  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   data #!EF 
   45 . The default for the output of the interactor is, for 
   46 each component of the vector, the midpoint of the corresponding component 
   47 of  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   min #!EF and  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   max #!EF . #!N #!I0 
   48 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   min #!EF  #!F-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--18*   and #!EF  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   max #!EF 
   49 #!EF #!I50 #!N specify the minimum and maximum values of the 
   50 interactor's vector output. If set, these values override those implied by 
   51  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   data #!EF . Each component of the vector values corresponds 
   52 to a component of the interactor output. #!N #!N A specified 
   53 value of [10 20 30] means that the minimum (or maximum) 
   54 of the first component is 10, of the second is 20, 
   55 and of the third is 30. When the specified value is 
   56 scalar, that value is used for all components. #!N #!N If 
   57 neither  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   min #!EF nor  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   data #!EF is specified, the 
   58 interactor uses the minimum set in the  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   Set Attributes... #!EF 
   59 dialog box. #!N #!N If neither  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   max #!EF nor  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   
   60 data #!EF is specified, the interactor uses the maximum in the 
   61  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   Set Attributes... #!EF dialog box. #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   
   62 delta #!EF #!EF #!I50 #!N specifies a scalar value as a 
   63 factor for calculating the increment between successive outputs over the specified 
   64 range. The actual value depends on the interpretation specified by  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   
   65 method #!EF (see below). #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   method #!EF 
   66 #!EF #!I50 #!N specifies the interpretation of  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   delta #!EF : 
   67 #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--18*   #!N #!N #!I30 #!N o "rounded": the 
   68 increment (  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   max #!EF -  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   min #!EF ) * 
   69  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   delta #!EF is rounded to a "nice" number. The spacing 
   70 between successive values will approximate the interval specified by  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   delta 
   71 #!EF . (For example, the default value of 0.01 specifies an 
   72 interval of 1/100 of the specified range.) #!N #!I30 #!N o 
   73 "relative": the interpretation is the same as for "rounded," but the 
   74 increment is  #!F-adobe-times-medium-i-normal--18*   not #!EF rounded. #!N #!I30 #!N o "absolute": 
   75  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   delta #!EF is the absolute value of the interval. (If 
   76  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   delta #!EF has not been specified, its default is 1.) 
   77 #!N #!N The default value for  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   method #!EF depends on 
   78 other input. The default is: #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--18*   #!N #!N 
   79 #!I30 #!N - "rounded" if  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   data #!EF is specified  #!F-adobe-times-medium-i-normal--18*   
   80 or #!EF if both  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   min #!EF and  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   max #!EF 
   81 are specified. #!N #!I30 #!N - "absolute" in all other cases.

   84 number of decimal places displayed in the interactor. If neither  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   
   85 data #!EF nor  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   delta #!EF is specified, the interactor uses 
   86 the value in its own  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   Set Attributes... #!EF dialog box. 
   87 #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*    #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   label #!EF #!EF #!I50 #!N is 
   88 the global label of all instances of the corresponding interactor stand-in. 
   89 An interactor instance's local label (set from the Control Panel) overrides 
   90 a global label. If not specified, the global label is set 
   91 by the user interface. #!I0 #!N #!N #!N #!N Example Visual
