SoTabBoxManip is derived from SoTransform (by way of SoTransformManip). When its fields change, nodes following it in the scene graph scale, and/or translate.

As a subclass of SoTransformManip, this manip also has a 3D interface to edit some of its fields. In this case, the interface edits the scaleFactor and translation fields.

A manipulator differs from a dragger. When you move a dragger, no other nodes are affected. When you move an SoTransformManip, other nodes move along with it. (See the reference page for SoTransformManip.)

The interface for an SoTabBoxManip is exactly the same as that of the SoTabBoxDragger. To find out more about the interface, see the reference page for SoTabBoxDragger. To find out how the manipulator uses a dragger to provide its interface, see the reference page for SoTransformManip.

On screen, this manip will surround the objects influenced by its motion. This is because it turns on the surroundScale part of the dragger (See the reference page for SoSurroundScale)
