REFEDIT is a really simple example. Old school it would pop up a tool bar with buttons for save, discard, add, and remove while the command is active. Ribbon panel basically does the same thing, but you're not hunting for that elusive 4-button floating toolbar on an HD widescreen monitor.
The new semi-intelligent ARRAY might be a better example. Select an array, change a few numbers in the boxes... much like Hatch selection.
Raster design tools are another good example.
