How may I determine which properties are controlled by event E1, E0 ports on the bottom of elements, such as the Polygraph element? The Architecture manual briefly mentions events but that's all I could find. I saw it used in one example (an event coming into an Oscilloscope). It seems that some events may have a specific purpose and tight coupling between the kinds of elements that emit/receive them, while other events are more generic. Please provide some more info about this.

There are 2 event pins. The left pin is for input events, and right pin is for output events.

So for example PropertySetter can only connect to the left pin, because its output blue pin can only connect to input pins. PropertyGetter on the other hand connects its blue input to the right blue pin.

OK that's a good tidbit to understand.

How is it determined which property on the element is affected when an input event is used? Does the incoming event determine what property on the element is being set? Or, does the element determine what do do with incoming values on events?

If you use PropertySetter, then you select the property in there, and also other behavior.

PropertySetter is the most often used with the event input.
