Now that the components have been added on the workspace, they have to be connected together.

In this example, as the cSetBody and cLog components are already connected, you only need to connect the cTimer to the cSetBody component.

To connect the components together, use either of the following methods:

Right-click and click again

  1. Right-click the source component, cTimer in this example.

  2. In the contextual menu that opens, select the type of connection you want to use to link the components, Row > Route in this example.

  3. Click the target component to create the link, cSetBody in this example.

    Note that a black crossed circle is displayed if the target component is not compatible with the link.

    According to the nature and the role of the components you want to link together, several types of link are available. Only the authorized connections are listed in the contextual menu.

Drag and drop

  1. Click the input component, cTimer in this example.

  2. When the O icon appears, click it and drag the cursor to the destination component, cSetBody in this example.

    A Row > Route connection is automatically created between the two components.

    While this method requires less operation steps, it works only with the Row > Route connection.

You can also drop components in the middle of a Row link. For more information, see How to add a component between two connected components.

For more information on using various types of connections, see Using connections in a Route.
