I was recently asked a question about updating display boxes. Display boxes are the building blocks of JMP output windows. Fundamentally there are two methods of updating these display boxes, which I will take a closer look at. (more…)
Sometimes you compose a collection of display boxes and they don’t appear to be fully aligned. If you care about the aesthetics of a user interface this can drive you a bit crazy! Here is a trick that will help you fix the problem.
With a little effort you can create some stunning interfaces to front-end your JSL scripts. The individual elements of the user interface are known as display boxes. They can be used to add content to a window and to control alignment.
If you want to interactively build graphs in JMP then the graph builder platform is great.
I use it a lot when I’m not so familiar with a set of data, and I’m not quite sure how I want to plot the data. The graph builder allows me to rapidly evaluate different graphical representations.
When we create a custom window in JMP we basically design a layout for a variety of user interface building blocks referred to as display boxes. Most of these are quite logical – a button box displays a button, a radio box displays a radio button, a list box displays a list, and a text box displays some text.
