Graph IDETables ► Overview

Tables are used to show and edit numeric data in textual format and often show up in a data-oriented Inspector Editor. Table cells can represent many data types. For example, a table cell can represent a color in RGBA (red, green, blue and alpha) numeric representation, or a pair of scalars representing a 2D point. That representation is called atomic mode. A cell can also represent one component of a composite atomic. For example, a 2D point can be represented as the X Value in column one and the Y Value in column two. The figure below shows the two different modes for a Function graphic.

To alternate between the modes, click-hold or right click on the table and choose the mode or use the table component pop up button (to the right above the table).
