BehaviourComposer: ignore everything before this.

The BehaviourComposer is build using the AJAX web development toolkit which is still being improved with respect to accessibility and we are always trying to improve the software e.g. using guides such as the WebAIM accessibility for Rich Internet Applications.
It is highly recommended you use the latest version of JAWS and Window-Eyes:
A Add to Prototype
L Add to List
and to access the option in the sub-menu and change when micro-behaviour code is scheduled to run:
R Do repeatedly
T Do at time
P Do with probability
C Do with conditionality
W Do when
E Do whenever
When editing plain text the shortcut keystrokes are :
CTRL+A highlights the whole editing area
CTRL+C copies the highlighted area to the clipboard.
CTRL+U changes your font to underlined.
CTRL+V pastes the data from the clipboard
CTRL+X cuts the highlighted area.
CTRL+Y starts the redo function.
CTRL+Z starts the undo function.
TAB to move through the sequence of editor function buttons
When in the plain text area press TAB to exit.
In addition the following shortcut keystrokes work in rich text editors:
CTRL+B changes your font to bold.
CTRL+I changes your font to italic.
When you want to see your simulation TAB to the Run tab and use the following keystrokes:
SHIFT+S To Setup
SHIFT+G To Go (or begin the simulation)
Any other buttons you add can be given a shortcut key as you define (see the ADD-BUTTON micro-behaviour)
Unfortunately the other NetLogo user interface widgets do not have short cut keys e.g. sliders.
All menus, tabs, links, buttons and menu items should have captions with explanatory text to say what they are for. Please let us know if you find one without a caption or a caption that is unclear!
The main purpose of the Java Applet generated using the NetLogo software is to re-represent the data created as a simulation runs in a visual form. You can download your model into NetLogo from the BehaviourComposer and use the BehaviourSpace to run experiments on your model. The BehaviourSpace will output text files in a variety of formats which can for instance be imported into a spreadsheet for statistical analysis.
To do this you need to:
