Graph IDE ► Inspector Editors

An Inspector Editor is a special type of control that resides in its own location called the Inspector. The Inspector Editor provides an interface between the user (you) and a Vvidget (usually a graphic). That interface is a collection of various controls which alter parameters of the Vvidget one at a time.

The Inspector Editor editor is shown in a separate window called an Inspector Window. However, it can also show up in Graph IDE in many forms, including as control elements on the Graph IDE Document.
