Common Control plug-in Properties

Most control plug-ins have a set of common properties:


  • Field Identifier: When making templates for Viz Trio, this should be a numeric value, Range: 1-n. For Viz Pilot and Viz Ticker, this can also be a descriptive text string. This value is used by the control clients to identify the editable item in the scene. In Viz Trio the numbers from the control plug-ins are used to create the tab-order between the editable items.

  • Description: A description of the tab field or editable object. This will be used as a description for the items when used in the control clients.

  • Show only in Expert Mode: Hides the tab-field properties for the user if Expert Mode is enabled in Viz Trio. For more information, read about Viz Trio’s macro commands, and the command set_expert_mode_enabled.
