Example:

<param name="some_name" type="boolean" _gui-text="Some label text">false</param>

int

To get a textbox for an integer number. Input to the textbox is limited to integer numbers with up and down buttons at the right-hand side.

Limit the input range with the min and max attributes.

Example:

<param name="some_name" type="int" min="1" max="100" _gui-text="Some label text">1</param>

float

Limit the input range with the min and max attributes. To set the number of decimal places, use the precision attribute.

Example:

_gui-text="Some label text">1.234</param>

string

A textbox to capture a character string.

Example:

<param name="some_name" type="string" _gui-text="Some text label">Some default text</param>

description

Example:

<param name="some_name" type="description"">Some text here.</param>

enum

Creates a list of choices where the user can only select one option using a drop down select list.

Create the different choices with <item> elements. The first item is selected by default.

The returned value for the optiongroup element is the value attribute of the selected item.

Example:

<param name="some_name" type="enum" _gui-text="Some label text">
   <_item value="1">First option</_item>
   <_item value="2">Second option</_item>
</param>

notebook

Creates a set of pages or tab-sheets. Create individual pages with the <page> element.

The returned value for the notebook parameter element is the name of the selected page/tab.

Example:

<param name="some_name" type="notebook">
   <page name="name_page_1" _gui-text="First page">
      <param>...</param>
   </page>
   <page name="name_page_2" _gui-text="Second page">
      <param>...</param>
   </page>
</param>

optiongroup

Creates a list of choices where the user can only select one option. By default this is displayed as radiobuttons. Set the attribute appearance="minimal" to display a drop down select list instead. The default value is always the first option element.

Create the different choices with <option> elements.

The returned value for the optiongroup element is the value attribute of the selected option.

Example:

<param name="some_name" type="optiongroup" appearance="minimal" _gui-text="Some label text">

   <_option value="2">Second option</_option>
</param>
