block dialog

A multi-tab dialog, accessible by double-clicking a block, for reviewing and editing block parameters. The content of the block dialog is defined in XML file format in the block's .scb file. The dialog does not validate textual information immediately. For example, you can enter a variable, X, that you have not yet defined in a context. The dialog does detect syntax errors immediately such as a missing parenthesis. Complete validation of the information in the block dialog occurs during compilation.
