In the basics, the interface is simple and straight forward.

The left treeview contains the scripts. The scripts are actually text files that contain the scripts. Double click on a selected item will execute the script. The script can be edited via an external text editor with a "Right Click - Edit".

Files and folders can be added or deleted via the default Windows File Explorer.

The textbox on the right contains the Input/Output that can be used within a script. The text can be set via one or more of the following methods:

  • Copy/Paste text;
  • Keyboard edit;
  • Drag/Drop a (text)file into the textbox;
  • Via script.

The statusbar on the top can show status messages. They can be set via script or via settings.

The statusbar on the bottom contains a Red/Green light to show if a script is running. It also contains version information, textbox cursor position, an optional progress bar and an indication if the textbox is read-only or not. The textbox is read-only in case of large files or when info (.nfo) files are loaded.

Later, we will learn that many styling possibilities are possible and that we can add menu's, forms and even remove the statusbar, textbox and treeview. We can therefore create a specific program, just via short script files.
