This section covers all the built-in Vision components. While the component is selected, you can use the Property Editor panel to alter the component's properties, which changes the component's appearance and behavior. Shapes are Vision components too. Each shape may be individually selected, named, and has its own properties. Shapes have some additional capabilities that other Vision components don't have, such as the ability to be rotated. Shapes are created using the shape tools, not dragged from the component palette.

To make any of these components do something useful, like display dynamic information or control a device register, you configure property bindings for the component. To make the component react to user interaction, you configure event handlers for it.
