Launching Template Explorer

One way to start a code generation session is with Template Explorer. Just as Windows Explorer serves to organize files and folders stored on your computer, Template Explorer serves to organize templates. To launch Template Explorer, select CodeSmith Generator Explorer from the CodeSmith Generator program menu. This will open Template Explorer with an initial view showing all of the folders containing templates in your CodeSmith Generator installation.

Important Note: Generator Explorer is the name of the application as seen in the tool bar. However, it is just a wrapper around Template Explorer.
