iSMA Tool Windows
When the iSMA Tool is run for the first time, the iSMA Tool application is displayed. It consists of a few windows shown on the figure below.
The above look applies only during an initial activation of the iSMA Tool. Further activations and updates of the program will remember the window settings changed by the user in accordance with his preferences.
In the default settings of the iSMA Tool, the upper left side of the screen is occupied by a Workspace Tree window. Below is a Device Kits window showing current kits of the connected device. Central part of the screen is occupied by a Main screen, a space where the application’s views are shown on tabs, which is discussed further. After the iSMA Tool activation the Main screen shows program information shown on the figure above. Under the Main screen there is a Console window, and on the right there is an Object Properties window.
Additionally, besides the aforementioned windows, the iSMA Tool screen shows a menu and a toolbar, a window with editable component path, and a capacity identifier.
The window with an editable component path is by default set below the main menu and toolbar. It can be moved to the bottom, below the Console window, or even to the left, or right margin by changing the path text to the vertical one.
The suggested window position in the iSMA Tool can be modified freely by dragging, resizing, and fixing views relative to each other.
The iSMA Tool allows a completely free setting of the views and windows. Free distribution allows specific windows to be visible non-stop or hide automatically. These settings apply to the windows such as the Workspace Tree, Device Kits, Object Properties, or Console windows. It is possible to move the window outside of the iSMA Tool software to other connected screen.
To move any window into another part of the screen it needs to be grabbed by the header and dragged into a new location. The figure below shows moving of the Object Properties window. While moving the window, special controls appear to facilitate proper placing of the window in relation to the remaining windows in the view.
As a result of changing the windows position it is possible to adjust their look according to individual needs. On the figure below, the Workspace Tree window has been moved above the Main screen, and the Device Kits window has changed its position from the left side to the right.
The iSMA Tool offers a quick enlarging of the Main screen to the whole area thanks to automatic minimizing of the remaining windows. To temporarily enlarge the Main screen press the windows icon (third one from the right) on the toolbar under the main menu, as it is depicted on the figures below showing the iSMA Tool before and after the enlargement of Main screen. In order to restore the full view of all windows press again the windows icon.
