In this seminar, Dr. Lopez details how to program Maple's Embedded Components. All the lore and wisdom he has accumulated by trial-and-error, practice, and badgering of the Maplesoft programmers will be revealed during the presentation.
Embedded Components are those buttons and boxes that can be assembled to create math apps. They are inserted into a document by clicking in the Components palette. They can be coded interactively "within" the component, or programmatically, from "without" the component.
Many examples of math apps exist in Maple. The Math Apps accessed from the Tools menu provide many examples of these Embedded Components. Many of the newer Task Templates also illustrate the use of Embedded Components. The code for any of these built-in applications is readily available for the user - it lurks just a right-click away, behind the components themselves.
