This is the name of the Windows Designer item as it will be displayed in the main window of the USoft Binder file. You can use binder variables in this name.

App Name

This is where you specify the name of the USoft application that you want to design windows or dialogs for. The user who is accessing the Windows Designer from this item must have been granted proper access rights to this application in USoft Authorizer.
