Panel Execute DAT
The Panel Execute DAT will run its script when the values of a specified panel component changes. You can specify which Panel Values to look at, and trigger based on their values changing in various ways.
Put the command
echo $args in the script to show what values are passed to the script from the panel.

/executeloc - Determines the location the script is run from.
- Current Node
/current- The script is executed from the current node location (for example, where the pc Command points to).
- This Node
/here- The script is executed from the parent of the DAT. The DAT executes from the parent to make siblings of the DAT easy to access: DAT scripts used to execute from inside the DAT.
- Specified Component
/comp- The script is executed from the component specified in the Component parameter below.
/component - The component who's state change will trigger the DAT to execute its script when Execute is set to On Panel Change. This component is also the path that the script will be executed from if the Execute From parameter is set to Specified Component.
/panelvalue - The Panel Value(s) that is monitored to trigger the execution of the script.
Scripts will execute based on a combination of the five trigger events listed below. The script is executed once per trigger (except for While On/While Off cases). Each event will only cause one trigger to go off (i.e., if both Off to On and On Value Change are checked, one event will be fired with Off to On as the trigger). Logic for the 'on' state is greater than zero.
- Off to On
/offtoon- The script executes when the panel value specified switches from off to on, called at the first "on" frame.
- While On
/on- The script executes when the panel value specified is on. It is called once each frame.
- On to Off
/ontooff- The script executes when the panel value specified switches from on to off, called at the first "off" frame.
- While Off
/off- The script executes when the panel value specified is off. It is called once each frame.
- On Value Change
/change- The script executes when the panel value specified changes value in any way. It is called once each frame.
/edit - Clicking this opens a text editor to add/edit/delete text from the DAT.
