From Passive Documents

The textual and graphical results of Python operations are directed to document editors where they can be supplemented with the author's own text, spreadsheet printouts, and the pasting of photos and other images. These sample slides are of results from various Python modules as displayed in the Report and Guide documents.

 

To Interactive Documents

Visral's interactive documents allow user engagement, autonomous operation, as well as permitting computational results to determine the direction of discourse.

  • Embedding Operators

    Clicking on the appropriate button of the tracking menu will embed the Operator into the Report document and appear as a button with the word Operator on it.
       

  • Once embedded, clicking on the Operator button will cause a new Panel to be displayed with the originally embedded Operator, which if clicked will cause the operation to be executed.


  • Embedding Code

    Clicking on the appropriate button of the morphing menu will embed the selected code from the previous PAD to have focus, into the Report document and appear as a button with the word Execute on it.
          
    Once embedded, clicking on the Execute button will cause original code to be executed with the results going to the Trace editor. If the button is clicked from the Guide, the results can be direct to either the Trace or Report.


  • Embedding Venues

    The dropdown of the right most Morphing menu icon list the embeddable components. Venues can be embedded for transporting to and installing in other Visral installations. It can be identified by a button with the word Venue on it.
          
    Once embedded, clicking the Venue button will show a file directory set to the default location and the name of the file that was embedded, both of which can be altered.


  • Embedding Datasets

    Datasets can be embedded into RTF documents allowing them to be distributed to other Visral installations. It will appear as a button with the word DataSet on it.
    Once embedded, clicking the Data button will bring up a menu for selecting a DataFrame name and loading the dataset.


The document editors permit font selection and coloring, while the paragraphs can be formatted and justified. Microsoft Office Word accepts RTF files and can be used for more elaborate editing with the results still capable of being processed by Visral.
