Typing on the design workspace to add the second Route component

About this task

The second component of our Route will be added by typing its name directly on the workspace, instead of dropping it from the Palette.

Prerequisite: Make sure you have selected the Enable Component Creation Assistant check box in the Studio preferences. For more information, see Using centralized metadata in a Job.

To add a component directly on the workspace, proceed as follows:


  1. Click where you want to add the component on the design workspace, and type your keywords, which can be the full or partial name of the component, or a phrase describing its functionality if you don't know its name. In our example, start typing cset.
    Information noteNote:
    • To use a descriptive phrase as keywords for a fuzzy search, make sure the Also search from Help when performing a component searching check box is selected on the Preferences > Palette Settings view. For more information, see Palette preferences (Talend> Palette Settings).
    • Components may not always have a prefix letter in the name. Therefore, as a best practice, you may want to simply specify the main body when searching for a component by its name.
    A list box appears below the text field displaying all the matching components in alphabetical order.
  2. Double-click the desired component to add it on the workspace, cSetBody in our example.
