BSA – HMI Tools

The table below shows the current list of tools in HMI Designer part of BSA. It is few common tools like lines, notes etc not listed here, but this is the basic collection. I might add a few tools as I see the need, but this will more or less be version 1.0. A main milestone is to be able to auto-generate dialogs I will use in BSA, so basically the first version of BSA will be used to generate parts of the next version. This is needed due to the amount of work with these dialogs, but it is also an important milestone and proof of concept. The next step will be to add gauges and more HMI controls in hundreds – or more exactly – the current list is build-in tools while I will open for add-in tools later.
