4. Main Window

Upon clicking on the Event log tab, the following window will appear:

Event log

The event log is activated and items are brighter when a project is opened, and tree nodes are populated with messages and other information during the build process. In particular the status of the encoding and any parse errors will be displayed. To view the raw log from the Encoder after encoding, right click and select View Log.

Double clicking a message in the event log tree that is associated with a file will attempt to open the file using the program associated with that file type. Using project settings, it is possible to choose either the default Windows editor, or one of several other popular editors for editing code, if installed. If the editor provides the feature, double clicking an error message will also position the cursor on the line containing the error.

An example of the Encoder having encoded a project is shown below.
