The numeric input object creates a control window where the user can enter a numerical value. There exist properties for minimal and maximal value that are accepted when user enters a value. If the property "Is Integer" is set to "Yes", digits behind the decimal point are truncated. If "Execute on change" is set to "Yes", a new thread is created when the user presses return. The property "Significant digits" controls the length of the displayed number and is effective only when "Is Integer" is set to "No".
