Is there any way to create a slider (like those in Geogebra) to change values in tracker ?

If it have been possible you could change value of forces, constants to adjust particle modell to fit video analysis of real objects.

Hi Lars,

This (or a up/down spinner) might be possible and I will look into it. One complication is that the parameter and initial value expressions in the Model Builder are not always numbers, so a slider/spinner would not be appropriate.

Thanks for your suggestion.  Doug
