This object is returned when calling get(0) and allows to modify some parameters for handles and uicontrols. Consoles's properties are the following:


A boolean or a string

Manages the display of all children handles in figures including default menus ones.

Default value is "off".


A boolean or a string

Manages the rendering of uicontrols.

Default value is "off" and uicontrols look and feel is managed by operating system.

Setting this value to "on" or %T will make the uicontrols have an old TK look and feel.


A boolean or a string

Manages the display of uicontrols properties.

Default value is "off" and only the uicontrols properties used on the Java side are displayed.

Any data of any type, that you want to ascribe to the console.


Single string, that can be used as a console custom text id.
