A Parameter Dialog allows you to view and manipulate all the Parameters of an Operator. Each Operator has one or more tabs (or "pages") of parameters viewable in the dialog, some tabs are unique to individual OPs, while others are common to different OP types.
The dialog is viewable in three different areas in the TouchDesigner user interface. The Parameter Dialog is viewable in the Network Editor pane by pressing the p key. This will also hide the dialog if it is already visible. Parameters Dialog can also be an floating window by selecting it from the right-click menu on nodes. Finally, it can be viewed as a Pane type.
All of the parameter dialogs have a similar layout with the same set of gadgets to manipulate the various parameter values. Parameter dialogs are displayed on the right side of a network. Multiple parameter dialogs can be open at once, by flipping either the Network or Pane Sticky button. The topmost visible parameter dialog is the currently selected OP.
The header of the parameter dialog provides valuable information about the operator.
