The Object Tree is used to overview and manage all objects and instances.
The explanation of the context menu of the different instances can be found in the Basics.
In the Object Tree the status of the objects is displayed with color codes.
Everything is normal and the object is displayed in the WebFront.

Via the dialog new objects can be created in the main category. Alternatively, by right-clicking on the desired position in the object tree, an object can be added to this position. The respective object types are described in more detail in the Basics.
You can search for an ObjectID using the search dialog. If found, the object tree automatically jumps to the ID you are looking for and selects it.
Here you can quickly switch between the logical, physical, and list view.
Logic Tree View
The logical view displays all objects within IP Symcon. The structure created here will later also be used as the basis for displaying the WebFront. Objects can be moved via drag & drop.
Physical Tree view
The physical view displays only disconnected and I/O instances at the top level. In the I/O area, the devices are represented in the structure of the actual physical connection. The structure is illustrated under Parent instances. (I/O -> Gateway -> Device) Unconnected instances include those that are not physically present.
All objects except for categories are displayed in the list view. These can be sorted in ascending or descending order for any column. When sorting by "Updated" you can directly see what is currently happening on the system and which scripts, events, variables etc. are being updated/executed. When sorting by location/object, type, or value, these are sorted alphabetically and offer the opportunity to quickly gain an overview and to find and edit searched objects.
Here the visibility of certain objects in the object tree can be switched on and off to set the overview or focus to specific types.
Overview functionality to enable and disable the displayed columns.
When entering the search field, the quick filter is automatically activated. This can be switched on and off again by clicking on the quick filter. It is only searched in the column "Location/Object".
