Touch Portal's main screen

This is the main screen of Touch Portal.

This screen shows a lot of options and for first time users not everything is as clear as water so lets divide the main screen in section that will make you understand better what does what.

We have divided the main screen in 6 parts as you can see. Each part has its own responsibility and we will explain what they are:

  1. The Title bar shows our name and the version number on the left. For Beta and Alpha users it shows the build as well. On the right are all the menu options and the window actions.
  2. The Tabbed menu is where you can navigate to different Touch Portal sections such as Pages, Events, Flows, Values, the Asset library, Guides and Help and the Touch Portal logs.
  3. The main section shows you the main view of the selected menu item. In our example it shows the main view of the Page manage section.
  4. Main view Settings and info view shows you the settings you can set that are part of the main section loaded elements. For pages you can setup all the attributes of the page itself for example. Other sections will use this to show information about the section.
  5. The Connection bar has all the elements and indicators to handle the connection with your device. The first selector is to choose the correct network adapter. The other elements give you information about the connection.
