A parameter-value in a dialog-box

In this example, of the Dimension dialog-box, the parameter is Dimension and the parameter-value is 300.

Parameter-value - the value in the data-box to edit and apply to the element.



Spin-Increment - the change to the parameter-value each time you click the Spin-Box arrow  - see Spin-Box control


Spin-Box control:  see Spin-Box Control
