Experimentor can be used to create and display numerous shapes, images and text on the screen for the subject to interact with.

Creating the 4 basic shapes:

The above program creates a circle, rectangle, some text and an image, all displayed on the screen for 5 seconds:

Circle, rectangle, text and an image

Objects

You can also create objects that do not appear on the screen, but can still be handy to organize and hold your variables (data):

The above codes define a custom object with two properties, “a” and “b”, and then on the second line prints out the value of “a” and the value of “b”.

Because a custom object like this has no default properties, you must use the “ define ” keyword before each variable, because you are defining all of the variables on your custom object.

The object quick-reference (found directly under the main Documentation tab) defines all of the properties that each type of shape, image and text provide that you can use in your experiments.
