    the zenon engineering environment is GUI based and very easy to learn, and can be operated by mouse and keyboard.

    You don't need any programming skills to make your first zenon project. Also in the background your GUI actions are not translated into code, that you need to compile or need to adjust.

    To give you an example to show e.g. an event list or alarm list in the project:

    in the GUI

    - create a screen of the event list type, insert the default elements
    - create a function to call this screen
    - draw a button in a screen and link the function
    -> in the runtime click the button and view the event list

    zenon however also does offer a programming interface, both during engineering and during the runtime. You can program in VBA, C# or VB.NET, for example to automatically make projects, or execute something special in the runtime.

    For example the few steps described above to add an event list to the project in the GUI, can also be executed via the programming interface in the editor. In this case you would write the code to create the screen, the function, the button and link the function, and everything will be created on executing the code.
