Chain Custom Values (12d App)

A 12d Model application design to be used in chains for displaying values and capturing those values in parameters. This works similarly to the Chain Custom Prompts app, but is not intended for user interaction. Rather, the idea is that the chain author will provide the values to be displayed in the panel with the intention of capturing them in a parameter. This is sometimes required because there is not currently (V14C2h) an in-built Set Parameter Value command. As such, parameter values can only be set manually in the Parameter Values File (PVF) or by capturing from a field on a panel. This 12d Model app provides a method to achieve the latter in an entirely flexible and customisable way.

Unfortunately, there's no documentation for this at the moment, but the command-line arguments for the field types (e.g. Text, Real, Integer) use the same values as for the Chain Custom Prompts app so refer to that documentation.  Do note, however, that since there are only 9 supported parameter types (Grids are not supported by this macro), it's a limited subset of those commands.  If you're interested in a longer explanation of how this macro can be used refer to the post Set and Change Parameter values in Chains.
