The Visual view provides assistance and visualization during completion of a SeqNinja script. This view contains the same information as the Text view, but in a graphical presentation. The Visual view is the default view.

To open the Visual view, click on the Visual tab () or use the View > Visual View command. The following image shows the Visual view after adding sample Templates panel and Toolkit panel items and filling in the fields.

Entering data for an operation:

  • To add a sequence, use the Choose Sequence(s) button. You may also type in the filename in the text box to its right (see Add and modify a sequence) or copy and paste in a filename from your clipboard. The sequence you enter will apply only within that sequence expression and not to subsequent operations.
  • To use drop-down menus, click the arrow on the right of each menu, then select an item from the menu. Many drop-down menus allow you to type in text or numbers if the selection you want is not offered.
