Parameters are sort of like variables, however, they can only be made within events. These parameters are defined every time that an event is called. They can then be accessed as the event runs, and act as a sort of instruction for the event. The parameter values are deleted when an event stops. They allow you to make events more customizable.

Hope that this helps!

I think I understand the variable-part, as I know it from my math-classes, but those parameters I still don't really get :S If they are like variables, but with an additional limit, then why not just use the variables and leave out the parameters?
