The Designer panel contains two of the most frequently used features of the AM Composer: the Property Panel and the Solution Explorer. The Property Panel contains all available properties for a selected activity. The Solution Explorer displays all available Workflow.xaml-files.
Solution Explorer is used to manage the project file structure. You can easily add or remove building blocks from the current project using the available toolbar. In addition, it is possible to add Microbots from the repository to the project.
Microbots are centralized workflow files stored in a company-wide repository. Changes to these Microbots can easily be pushed or pulled to reduce maintenance efforts and minimize development costs.
There are three options when adding a workflow to your project structure.
You can also right click on the BuildingBlock folder icon in the Solution Explorer and add the elements from there.
|(1) Add from Repository||Add an existing Microbot from the Microbot repository.|
|(2) Add from File||Add an existing workflow.xaml to the project structure.|
|(3) Add new File||Create a new .xaml file and add it to the project structure.|
Add from Repository
To add a workflow from the repository, (1) select the workflow file from the microbot repository (HelloWorld.xaml) (2) Press next. (3) Select the folder within the project structure where the workflow should be stored, and (4) press ok.

Add new File

The property panel allows users to access all available properties of the selected activity. You can either maintain the properties directly inside the property panel or use the expression editor.
