CAN

The CAN Settings.
The CAN Settings cover the necessary data to provide functionality to the CAN Nodes.
Interface Name is the identifying name of the CAN Bus. Virtual CAN is also possible within Incari.
Baudrate is the speed of the communication for the channel. More information about this metric can be found in the External Links section.
Channel Name is the USB port that CAN is connected to on Windows.
A DBC File needs to be uploaded and selected. This DBC File is a vital part of the CAN protocol, as it stores all data regarding the connections between devices.
Autostart can be enabled or disabled and dictates when the channel is run (from the beginning of an application's life cycle or when the appropriate Nodes are used).

Fonts

The Project Settings Fonts Attributes.
The Fonts Settings let the user define different types of fonts to add personalized style to texts.
In the Font Manager, the user can manage their fonts: using the + button to add a new one and the x to delete all existing fonts. Furthermore, each font can be individually deleted with the x button next to it.
Family Name is automatically filled in with the Font's name when a Font file is chosen. The text can also be edited manually.
Font Asset is the Font file that is uploaded and selected for use. The Font file needs to be in the Project's Asset Folder.

HTTP

The Project Settings HTTP Attributes.
The HTTP Settings cover the necessary data to provide functionality to the HTTP Nodes.
Name is an identifying name of a HTTP server chosen at the user's discretion. This will show up in the Nodes as a choice for the Configuration Attribute.
Is IPv6 can be enabled or disabled. IPv6 is the newest version of the Internet Protocol. More information about IPv6 can be found in the External Links section.
Local port is the port the user chooses to use for their HTTP server. More information on ports and port forwarding can be found in the External Links section.
Is auto start can be enabled or disabled and dictates when the server is run (from the beginning of an application's life cycle or when the appropriate Nodes are used).

Keyboard

The Keyboard Settings.
The Keyboard Settings let the user define new layouts that can then be used for On-Screen Keyboards.
In the Layout Manager, the user can manage all their custom layouts: using the + button to add a new one and the x to delete all existing custom layouts. Furthermore, each layout can be individually deleted with the x button next to it.
To create a new layout, a Keyboard Layout Asset is necessary. One can be created either in the Asset Manager or directly in the Layout Manager by clicking on the Layout Asset slot. The default for a newly created Keyboard Layout Asset is the English keyboard, which can be further modified in the Code Editor.
The Layout Name is also defined in the Layout Manager. This is the name with which custom layouts defined in the Layout Manager will appear in the Layout Attribute for On-Screen Keyboards.

MQTT

The Project Settings MQTT Attributes.
The MQTT Settings allow to manage the MQTT Connections and cover the necessary data to provide functionality to the MQTT Nodes.
Name is an identifying name of an MQTT connection chosen at the user's discretion.
Is IPv6 can be enabled or disabled. IPv6 is the newest version of the Internet Protocol. More information about IPv6 can be found in the External Links section.
Remote ip address is the IP address from which the connection originates.
Remote port is the port number of the connection.
Is auto start can be enabled or disabled and dictates when the connection is run (from the beginning of an application's life cycle or when the appropriate Nodes are used).

Profiler

The Project Settings Profiler Attributes.
The Profiler Settings cover the necessary data to provide functionality to the Profiler Module.
Enable enables or disables the Profiler, which can be edited in the Profiler View Module.
Port is the port number to which the Profiler Module has to connect.

Serial

The Project Settings Serial Attributes.
The Serial Settings allow the user to manage the Serial Connections and cover the necessary data to provide functionality to the Serial Nodes.
Name is an identifying name of a Serial connection chosen at the user's discretion.
ChannelName (Linux) is the USB port that a Serial set-up is connected to on Linux.
ChannelName (Windows) is the USB port that a Serial set-up is connected to on Windows.
Furthermore, the ChannelNames can both be specified, in the case that the user's platform is different than the target platform. If there is no difference in platforms, only one ChannelName needs to be filled in.
Baudrate is the speed of the communication for a channel. More information about this metric can be found in the External Links section.
