Node Properties enable interaction with the Node by providing a set of Inputs and Outputs and are composed of four visual areas.

Property Visual Components

Input Flow Socket

The input socket is a triangle icon that appears to the left of the property. Its presence indicates that a value can be set on the property. The value can be set either directly by editing the Value control or by connecting a Flow Connector to it.

Name

The property name is indicated here. If the name is truncated, hover over it to see the full name.

Value

An initial property value can be set by editing the value control. The control that is used depends on the type of value held by the property and may be a textbox, checkbox, link or drop-down list.

Output Flow Socket

The output socket is a square icon that appears to the right of the property. Its presence indicates that a value can be read from the property (ie. connected to another Node using a Flow Connector).

Custom Properties

Certain Nodes support Custom Properties. Refer to Custom Properties for more information.
