No operator specific methods.

Casting to a Value

The PanelValue Class implements all necessary methods to be treated as a number or string, which in this case gets or sets its value. Therefore, an explicit call to eval() or set() is unnecessary when used in a parameter, or in a numeric expression. For example, the following are equivalent in a parameter:

(float)parent().panel.u
parent().panel.u.val
parent().panel.u

# the following are also equivalent
parent().panel.u.val + 1
parent().panel.u + 1

# as are the following
parent().panel.u.val = 0.5
parent().panel.u = 0.5


Any of the procedural data operators. OPs do all the work in TouchDesigner. They "cook" and output data to other OPs, which ultimately result in new images, data and audio being generated. See Node.
