How can I use the values adjusted with the sliders in a Manipulate later in the notebook? The only way seems to be the DynamicModule, but that's not exactly what I want. To be more specific: I'm trying to write a notebook for fitting a model function to experimental data, and I want it to be reusable since I'll have to use it on different data files again and again. I want to plot the data and the model inside a Manipulate, and use the sliders to adjust reasonable startig values for my parameters. That does work very well, but the next step would be to insert these starting values (from the slider adjustments) as starting values in FindFit. How do I achieve this? I don't understand how I could use DynamicModule to do this, but what other options do I have.
