Biml Editor

Use the Biml editor to edit Biml files.

Biml Designer

Every item in the Logical View has an associated Biml file. While the item's editor and the property grid can typically provide complete customization for an item, it may be convenient to alter Biml directly.

Designer and Biml side by side

Syntax highlighting, quick info popups, and Intelliprompt are all available.
