1. Work Area. Here you create your Visual code.

2. Toolbox. This part of the interface contains Logic Blocks structured by usage. Click on a button of any block will create a block’s instance and you’ll be able to place it in any position inside Work Area. There’s a search textfield above the Toolbox for finding the blocks you need. Clear the textfield after the search is complete so all existing blocks could be displayed.

3. Inspector. If you choose any Logic Block inside Work Area Inspector is going to display the Logic Block’s settings. Usually Inspector is divided into 4 parts: a) input parameters; b) output parameters; c) block conversion area – which allows to convert the block into a similar one (if any similar blocks are present); d) either the description of the current block or a description of one of the similar blocks which is currently being mouse overed in the conversion area.

4. Instruments Panel.
