  • Needs DrawStimulus (the tag for rendering a frame) as an input to be able to run
  • LocationX: x coordinate (this is in the units of the viewport?) (Default: 0)
  • LocationY: y coordinate (this is in the units of the viewport?) (Default: 0)
  • ExtentX: Dimension in the x direction
  • ExtentY: Dimension in the y direction* ColorR: Value of Red (0 to 1)
  • ColorG: Value of Green (0 to 1)
  • ColorB: Value of Blue (0 to 1)
  • ColorA: Value of Alpha mask or tranparency (0: Transparent to 1:Opague; Default: 1)
