Setting

Setting[expr]
replaces control objects such as sliders or popup menus in expr by their settings.
  • When expr is a control object, Setting[expr] normally extracts the first argument of expr.
  • Setting[expr] replaces dynamic objects in expr by their current values.
  • When applied to the object created by Manipulate[e, {xi, ...}, ...], Setting gives the value of e evaluated with the current settings for the xi.
