Designer, the simple graphical user interface

The Designer is the core element of the application. Using Designer you can create a new Definition set as well as modify and execute existing Definition sets. The Definition files are pure XML, but instead of the file extension .xml FlowHeater uses .fhd as an acronym of Flow Heater Definition. Provided you have sufficient space on your monitor screen and enough memory available, there is no practical limit to how complex transformation definitions can grow to. You can also subdivide the working area into any number of layers, that way you retain an overview of even the most complex Definition sets.
