Component creation dialog

Component types are specified by modules loaded into the manager. The Parameter text box allows parameters for the component to be specified. These should be entered in URL parameter format, e.g. "param1=value1&param2=value2". The following general parameters are available for all components.

Configuration set values can also be set using the paramater text box. The format for these is "conf.NNNN.PPPP=VVVV". NNNN is the configuration set name, PPPP is the parameter name, and VVVV is the value. The example below illustrates setting parameters in an instance of the ConsoleIn component. A configuration set called "mode1" is created and the parameters "input_mode" and "input_cycle" are set.

Other parameters may be settable as well, depending on the component.
