Explanation of the Configuration Elements

The Autosar Interface Editor view requires minimal configuration to make the view available for users. Simply follow the instructions described in How to Configure Item View Menu Label Settings. It is, however, recommended that you define Configurable Add Part Grids for the Part Types: Arguments (ARGU), Data Type ARDG), Data Type (ARDH) and Arguments (ARAR) to display the allowed Data Types to use, if such a list is available. For instructions on how to do this, see Configuring Add Part Grid.

<AutosarInterfaceEditorConfigs> is the top tag which can include one or more <AutosarInterfaceEditorConfig>.

<AutosarInterfaceEditorConfig> is the top tag of each configuration and must have an id attribute. The id attribute in <AutosarInterfaceEditorConfig> identifies the specific configuration, and should be a unique string value when multiple configurations exist. 

Note: There is no need to define more than one <AutosarInterfaceEditorConfig> even though it is possible.

<ViewSettings> enables you to set a custom view label, hover-tip, icon, etc. See How to Configure Item View Menu Button Settings
