A parameter-value in a dialog-box

The image below is the Dimension dialog-box.

It has one parameter (Dimension) and parameter-value (set to 300) in the data-box.

MD-Dialog-box-EditParameters

I have added three colored boxes to highlight the three areas of the parameter box:

300

 

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

10

 

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


MD-Spin-BoxArrows


Spin-Box control:  see Spin-Box Control

If you cannot see the Spin-Box control:

A.Double-click with your pointer in the Parameter-value box
