Module designer

Glossary Item Box


The module designer is used to configure the [ClientUnitShema] schema. You can add a source code of the JavaScript modules, their dependencies, localized strings, images, messages, parameters and CSS styles to the schema.

A user interface of the module designer (Fig. 1) has several function areas, controls and instruments to create module schemas.

Source code editor

The area of the source code editor (1) is used to edit the source code of the user JavaScript classes. With the editor you can add, delete and format the source code of the added functions. The debugging of the source code is not provided in the editor. The editor has three tabs:

[Source code] – the source core of the module.

[LESS] – the source code of the CSS styles connected with the module. Styles can be added with the LESS language compiled to CSS.

[Images (view only)] – allows to view the collection of the images added to the module resources.

Schema structure window

The schema structure area (2) is used to display the schema structure; the root element, resources, dependencies, messages and parameters.

Property window

The properties of the element selected in the structure area (2) are displayed in the properties window (3). If the root element of the structure is selected, then the main properties of the schema source code are displayed. If the localized string is selected, then the properties of the localized string are displayed.

Configuration of the properties view is performed with menu commands (Fig. 2). Select the [All] command to display all properties of the selected element of the structure.
