Table of Contents
The Module Inspector gathers and displays extensive module information. This information can also be found in other parts of the software.
The Fields tab lists all fields available in the module.
The Fields tab contains the same information as the automatic panel's Parameters tab.
As they can be edited in the same way, they shall be discussed together here.
The values of fields can be edited. The options depend on the parameter type. Click the entry to edit. To finish the edit, press RETURN (to save the field value) or TAB (to save the field value and open the next field value for editing).
Just like with automatic panels, parameter connections can be created by dragging the parameter of another module onto the Fields tab.
For the fields of the Module Inspector, a context menu is available. The options depend on the type of the field and if it is part of a parameter connection.
<ModuleName>.<FieldName> [FieldType]: <Value>
Displays the module name, the name of the field, its type, and its current value.
If the title is selected, the <ModuleName>.<FieldName> is copied to the paste buffer. This string can be pasted into any text editor, for example inot MATE.
Copies the name of the field to the paste buffer.
Copies the value of the field to the paste buffer.
Pastes the field's value. The field's value can not only be pasted into an editor but also directly into another field.
Edit Field Value...
Opens an editor to edit the field's value.
Restore Default Value
Restore the default value of the field. This is only available if the current value is not the default value and the field is editable. (The field's value is displayed in a bold font in this case.)
Show Defined Enum Items...
Opens a window with four different representations of the enumeration's items:
String list: the names of the items as strings
MDL code: a snippet of MDL code that defines a field with the enumeration items
Python code: a snippet of Python code that defines directives to react to each chosen item
Detailed list: a list of the enumeration items with the item's name, the item's title, and the item's integer representation
This option is only available if the field is an enumeration field.
