Common Box Attributes
In the float number box, dragging to the left of the decimal point changes the value in increments of 1. Dragging to the right of the decimal point changes the fractional part of the number in increments of 0.01.
When the active patcher window is locked, numbers can be entered into a number box by clicking on it with the mouse and typing in a number on the computer keyboard. Typing the Return or Enter keys on Macintosh or the Enter key on Windows, or clicking outside the number box, sends the number out the outlet. You can also click on the number box and use the up or down arrows on your keyboard to increase or decrease the number by one. Shift+arrow jumps by tens. For the float number box, alt/option+arrow jumps by tenths.
When the object has focus and the tab key is pressed, a bang will be sent out the right outlet.
The number displayed in the number box is sent out the outlet. Numbers received in the inlet or typed on the computer keyboard can exceed the limits of the number box, but the value that gets stored, displayed, and sent out will automatically be limited to the specified range.
