June 22, 2011 7:43:18.470

Today's Smalltalk 4 You looks at the Trailblazer tools in VA Smalltalk - specifically, how to load them and turn them on. In future screencasts, we'll take a closer look at them and explore their functionality. If you have trouble viewing it here in the browser, you can also navigate directly to YouTube.

The basic browsers in VA Smalltalk are not your only option - you can also load the Trailblazer tools, which look and behave a little differently. Today we'll look at a few basics for Trailblazer, starting with how to get the tools loaded. First, open the Load features UI:

Load Features

Next, scroll down, select Trailblazer, and move it to the right:

Select Trailblazer

Note the message in the transcript - the Trailblazer tools are not on by default. To turn them on, go to the Tools menu, and toggle the Trailblazer option on:

Trailblazer off

Trailblazer on

Now, open the Configuration Maps Browser, and you'll see a different tool than what we've looked at previously:

Try opening the Application browser - you'll see that's different as well:

Trailblazer Tool

Remember that you can now toggle this on and off from the Tools menu - if you end up preferring the base tools, just turn Trailblazer off.
