As you know IOBoxes have default values for Minimum (-1000.0000) and Maximum (1000.0000). While the feature itself is useful, it should better be an optional parameter, I think. Right now the defaults can cause serious trouble. Have a look:
This is actually an example from the book “Prototyping Interfaces” (/4_2_Temperatursensor_vvvv_45beta29.2/TemperatureSensor.v4p).
Simulate Temp has a maximum value of 1023 set in this example, which is the upper bound of an Arduino analog pin reading. But the slider can’t reach this upper bound since the IOBox underneath, displaying the value, has the default maximum (1000.0000).
While this may seem like a minor problem it may be hard to debug especially in subpatches.
Thus, I propose to make those two parameters optional and not preset.
