Route File Management Dialog
The Route File Management Dialog is usually the first dialog or interface displayed to the user upon opening the eiConsole application. It has several functional categories of components, though its basic purpose is to manage the current directory and its contained routes, to upload finished interfaces / routes to a running eiPlatform, and to manage formats associated with the working directory.
