Interactive Components: Buttons, Sliders, Dials, and More

In Maple, you can embed interactive components in your document. Using elements such as sliders, buttons, dials, and gauges, your document becomes both a technical report and an easy-to-use application.


  • Available components include buttons, sliders, math and text entry boxes, plots, check boxes, list boxes, toggle buttons, radio buttons, data tables, dials, gauges, video players, microphones, and speakers
  • Includes mathematical expression boxes for entering and displaying 2-D math
  • Easily add components to your document using the Components palette
  • Control the appearance of components, such as images on buttons, orientation of sliders, and tickmark spacing on gauges
  • Interactive components are live when viewed through Maple’s slide-show mode, MapleNet, or the free Maple Player
  • Maple documents that make use of interactive components can be used online through a web browser by sharing them in the MapleCloud.
  • Create your application interactively through menus and palettes or by using the Exploration Assistant
  • Create your application programmatically by using commands, such as Explore, that automatically build applications, or by using commands that allow you to create, lay out, and program your full application programmatically
