The node system in Widget Designer allows to create custom logic routing of control data. For example you achieve to...

- remote control a Pandoras Box Layer with a standard Joystick
- connect a sensor input to any Pandoras Box Layer Parameter
- receive Art-Net values from another device and map these to Midi output values

etc,... The list of possible scenarios is probably endless.
If you have never worked with a node based system, the way it works within Widget Designer is very easy to learn.

The next chapter informs you about the different types of nodes and how to create and work with them. Then a small tutorial follows.

There are different types of nodes: Inputs, Filters, Outputs and the more advanced Scripts and Interactions. Additionally, you can create your own custom node using all other types of nodes with the Composite Node.

More advanced users might need to enter incoming or outgoing values as string, decimal or hexadecimal values, please find here the Syntax TCP- / UDP- / Serial Messages.
Another advanced technique is to control nodes via methods, which is explained in the chapter Object and Member Notation.
