​Elements in the Simulator Tab

Available Nodes

This list displays the Available Nodes in the current Bayesian network that can be used as Inputs or Outputs in the WebSimulator of the network.

Available Metrics

This list shows the Available Metrics that can be used as Output Components in the WebSimulator of the network.

The panels for Available Nodes and Available Metrics appear identically in all three tabs of the WebSimulator Editor, i.e., Simulator, Inputs, and Outputs.


Name of the WebSimulator, as it will appear in the list of the models.


You can specify the Title to be shown at the top of the published WebSimulator page.


Name of the WebSimulator's Author.

Field of Study

For public WebSimulators, indicating the Field of Study can help your audience find your model on the WebSimulator Home Page (opens in a new tab).

Type of Analysis

For public WebSimulators, indicating the Type of Analysis can help your audience find your model on the WebSimulator Home Page (opens in a new tab).

Theme Color

Theme Color refers to the background color of the horizontal panel at the top of your published WebSimulator.


Description allows you to provide a description or commentary, which is available to the end-user by clicking on the Information icon on your WebSimulator page.

  • By default, the Description field adopts the content of the Comment associated with your Bayesian network model.
  • For public WebSimulators, this Description also appears on the WebSimulator Homepage (opens in a new tab) when end-users hover with their cursor over the preview tile.

Description Picture

With Description Picture, you can specify a pictorial representation of your model. You can upload an image file of your choice or click the snapshot icon to capture a picture of your current Bayesian network.

  • This image is available to the end-user when clicking on the Eye icon on the WebSimulator page.
  • This picture is also used for your model's preview tile on the WebSimulator homepage.

Logo Picture

​You can specify a Logo Picture or banner to appear in the upper left corner of your model's WebSimulator page. Most screenshots on this topic page feature the banner of the 2018 BayesiaLab Conference in Chicago.

Logo URL

Logo URL allows you to associate a hyperlink with the Logo Picture.

Font Size

Font Size allows you to specify the size of the font displayed on your model's WebSimulator page.\

Input Layout

Input Layout refers to the style in which the Input elements appear in the Input Panel.\

History Layout

History Layout is only applicable to Adaptive Questionnaires. This option defines how the pieces of evidence that the end-user has set appear in the Input Panel.\

Output Layout

Output Layout refers to the style in which the Output elements appear in the Output Panel.

Show Variations

If you check the Show Variations option, your model's WebSimulator will highlight the impact of the pieces of evidence set by the end-user.

Reference State

If you check the Reference State option, the WebSimulator will display variations relative to the marginal distributions of the Outputs.


If you specify Targets by dragging available nodes into the Targets panel, your WebSimulator will serve as an Adaptive Questionnaire.

Unlike the Adaptive Questionnaire function in BayesiaLab (Menu > Inference > Adaptive Questionnaire), an Adaptive Questionnaire in the WebSimulator permits multiple Targets.


For Input Layout, History Layout, and Output Layout, you can choose from the following styles:

  • Grid
  • Flow
  • Line
  • Accordion
