The Monitors DAT is a table of data about all currently detected monitors with information on the resolution, screen positioning, monitor name and description, GPU, and a flag indicating whether it is a primary monitor or not.

You can also set it to display the overall bounds of all the detected monitors.

It runs a callback script when a change in the monitors has been detected. These changes can be that a monitor was plugged in, a monitor was unplugged, the resolution of a monitor has changed, or the primary monitor has changed.

The Monitor DAT returns top/bottom values in lower-left origin coordinates, (0,0) is the lower-left corner of the monitor.


Parameters - Monitors Page

Callbacks DAT callbacks - Runs this script once for each change to the table (ie. monitor state change). See monitorsDAT_Class for usage.

Bounds bounds - While on, an additional "bounds" row will be added to the table. The dimensions correspond to a bounding box around all the detected monitors. In this row, "primary" refers to the index in the table of the primary monitor.

Monitors monitors - - Specify which monitors to report information about.

Units units - - Specify if the numbers are reported in Native Pixel units or DPI Scaled units.

  • Native native -
  • DPI Scaled dpiscaled -

Parameters - Common Page

Language language - - Select how the DAT decides which script language to operate on.

  • Input input - The DAT uses the inputs script language.

An Operator Family that manipulates text strings: multi-line text or tables. Multi-line text is often a command Script, but can be any multi-line text. Tables are rows and columns of cells, each containing a text string.

The Graphics Processing Unit. This is the high-speed, many-core processor of the graphics card/chip that takes geometry, images and data from the CPU and creates images and processed data.

The generic thing that holds an Operator, and includes Flags (display, bypass, lock, render, immune) and its position/size in the network. Whether you "lay down an Operator" or "lay down an Node", you're doing the same thing.
