GUI tools: Shape Name

Post by ted »

Every NEURON user probably knows about the "builders" (Cell*, Channel*, Network*, LinearCircuit*), and ModelView is also becoming more widely used. However, the GUI has many other tools and features that are easily overlooked, but which can be quite helpful from time to time. One is the Shape Name tool, discussed here
The Shape Name tool lets you browse through all the sections of a model. Using this tool, you can bring up a panel that lets you see, and change, the values of all PARAMETERs of any section's distributed mechanisms. Very handy if you're dealing with a model that isn't managed by a CellBuilder.
