Figure 1 shows the Application tab in the workspace. The Application tab provides a simpler view of your system design. The items listed in these sections are derived from the items selected for your system in the System Selection Wizard. For information on this wizard, see the System Selection Wizard in the Configuring a System section.
The Application tab is divided into categories for Inputs, Parameters, and Outputs (see Inputs, Outputs, and Parameters). When you run a simulation or view live data in the commissioning mode, changing values are highlighted by a color. Colored highlighting is determined by the frequency the value is changing. As poll cycles return consistent values the highlight fades away. The intention of this feature is to bring attention to changes across the application data system, to expose potential relationships between values and modules, and to assist in troubleshooting.
Note: Temporary color highlights appear in three color stages (blue, yellow, and red). After the third stage (red) has been reached, all subsequent consecutive changes continue to display red. For more information on status color, see Table 1.

Depending on the mode in which the tool is operating, you are able to perform certain tasks using the Application tab. For information on the modes, see the Modes section. The following table describes the tasks you can perform using the Application tab in the different modes.
