This example illustrates the use of a user-defined type (GridInfo) to define a series of checkboxes on the screen. The example is written to allow the user to define the size of the cells, or the max number of rows and/or columns in order to modify the display.
Modify CellWidth to change the size of the response area. Modify intMaxRows / intMaxColumns to set the max numbers of rows/columns.
Also, the response area is defined as the area including both the checkbox and the accompanying string, while only the checkbox is drawn as a rectangle. This allows the user to respond by clicking the checkbox or the word itself in order to register a response. Uncomment the commands set to draw in red in order to view the entire response area.
a 17x6 grid of checkboxes with "word" written next to each box displays on screen. With the mouse cursor, click on any box and an "x" will appear in any clicked box. Click the "exit" button in the bottom right of the screen to exit the experiment.
