As you collect data from your device, you may want to create a custom display for that data. You can modify the panel of a document to create this custom display as well as to accept data from a user.
The following image highlights the parts of the editor that allow you to access and edit the panel of a document.
- Panel selector—Displays the user interface, or panel, of a document in the workspace. The panel provides a location for accepting information from the user as well as displaying the results of the code.
- Controls and indicators—Objects you add to the panel that allow users to either enter or view data. Each control or indicator can accept or display a single type of data, such as a number, a True/False value, or a text string.
- Palette—Organized hierarchy of all the controls and indicators you can add to the panel. To add an object from the palette to the panel, drag the object from the palette.
- Configuration pane—Provides options for customizing a selected control or indicator. Configuration options appear in the Item tab when you select a control or indicator.
