|When you first open the tool window, it shows a tree of accessible OpenLCB nodes. For most installations, this is just the list of what's attached via a CAN adapter.|
|You can click to open each node and see more about it.|
|Opening the "Supported Protocols" item, for example, will show you the capabilities of that particular node.|
|If you click on the "CDI" item, for Configuration Description Information, you'll get a DecoderPro-like configuration tool for the node. Note that this is entirely taken from the OpenLCB node itself. There's no need to find a decoder configuration file, select the right board type, etc.|
|You can fill that out and click "Write" to configure the node. The top few fields are used to give it a user-chosen name and description, so you can remember this node later. You can set the events that correspond to different inputs and outputs, and even give those user-convenient names. That's all stored permanently in the node.|
|After a restart, that information then shows in configuration tree to help you recognize your nodes.|
Thanks and congratulations to all who contributed!
