After connecting with the controller in the Workspace Tree, a subtree appears listing all components available in controller, starting with the app component (application), through service, devices, or Logic (for the iSMA-B-AAC20 controller with default application). Every change made in components, such as editing a component name, its parent, or other parameters in the component device subtree, is saved in the controller. This guarantees, after reloading the data from the controller, the same display of data (components) and synchronization with other users working at the same time on the same controller.

Operations which can be performed on components such as copying, adding, or removing new components, defining connections between components, are described in the further part of this manual.

Immediately after connecting with the device, both the Main screen and Device Kits windows remain unchanged. It is the opening of any component from the device tree that results in showing a specific view in the Main screen and filling the Device Kits window with the proper device kits.
