- The tabbed editors are typically shown…in the center of the IDE, in the tab well.…Usually a tab contains a code or markup editor,…but there are other types of windows that can open…in the center area.…I'll start by opening a few files.…I'll start with some CS files.…An XML file.…Maybe a text file.…That's good.…As you can see, they're all here in the tab well.…Let me show you a tool window that…typically goes in the tab well.…I'll go to View, and then choose Object Browser.…
Now for historical reasons,…this is usually placed in a tab in the tab editor,…as opposed to a separate docked window.…Another non-editor window that defaults…to appearing in the tab well is the Project Properties.…So here in this NameGenerator live project,…I will double click on the Properties node,…which opens a Property editor in a tab.…This is where I can change properties about the compile,…and the version number, and so on for this project.…
