Note: When you open the Servoy Developer opens (after closing the Welcome window), you will see an iServoy view the StartPage is shown in the Editor area. This view page shows links to online Servoy resources and headlines, including the online forum, blog, new releases, and events. When you close closing and reopen reopening Servoy, the perspective will load with the last set of editors that were active or loaded before closing.
The Solution Explorer view is a hierarchal hierarchical tree view of all the objects available in Servoy Developer. It is central to the Servoy development environment; everything you that one can do in Developer can be found in the Solution Explorer.
The Solution Explorer has two parts, the tree of objects (appears on top) and a contextual list (appears below). Depending on what is selected in the tree view, different objects will appear in the list view.
The following nodes in the Solution Explorer are of note:
Items opened from the Solution Explorer will open in an appropriate editor in the main Editor Area. For example, users can select a form to open in either a Form Editor (a graphical view of the form) or a Script Editor (a text editor). Media items will open using a supported media viewer (Servoy supports image files, and you one can assign other applications to open other file types via the Preferences menu). The following editors/viewers are provided by Servoy:
Most of these editors are straightforward; special features for the Form, Script , Stylesheet , Security, Database, and i18n editors are described in further detail as separate chapters or addressed in the Programming Guide.
Other views are available via the menu item Window > Show View. Newly activated views are typically shown on the right panel (as a tab next to Properties), but users can drag the tab to any desired location in the perspective. Once a view is active, it will remain in the perspective even when Servoy is closed and reopened. The default Servoy Design Perspective perspective can be reset at any time using Window > Reset Perspective, provided the modified perspective was not saved as the default Servoy Design Perspective perspective.
Commonly used Eclipse views include the Project Explorer and Navigator. For more information, visit the Help menu.
