Getting around in T.Rodon

Main window

The T.Rodon UI is made up of the following primary areas:

  1. The top part of the left pane contains the user list and group list. This is where you mainly select the subscribers and channels of your TASSTA network to perform associated actions. For details, see Access to people in your TASSTA network.
  2. The bottom part of the left pane shows collapsible controls for voice communication and the permanent push-to-talk (PTT) button. For details, see Voice communication.
  3. The top part of the right pane provides a button for each installed plugin in the right pane toolbar. Plugins implement a number of specialized features; in many cases, features from different plugins interoperate. For details, see Plugins.
  4. The bottom part of the right pane hosts the panels provided by the T.Rodon plugin selected in the toolbar above. The layout of the panels in this area varies from plugin to plugin.

In addition to the plugin buttons, the toolbar (labeled 3) in the right pane has four application-related buttons on the right:

  • Undock
    Detaches the view for the currently selected plugin as a separate window.
  • Settings
    Opens the configuration settings editor. For details, see Configuration settings.
  • About
    Displays general information about the application, including the version.
  • Logout
    Ends the current user's TASSTA network session. For details, see T.Rodon login session specifics.


Most of the functionality in T.Rodon is provided by dedicated add-on components called plugins. The set of available plugins depends on the options configured by the admininistrator in T.Commander. Some plugins do not have a user interface and work in the background. To activate and deactivate installed plugins, go to the Plugin management page in the configuration settings.

For a list of the available plugins that can be docked in the right pane, see Working with plugins.

Detaching multiple plugin windows (with the Undock button) lets you work with several interfaces at the same time.

Multi-language support

T.Rodon supports several languages. To change the language, go to the Language page in the configuration settings and pick one of the available languages. Additional languages can be added on request.


Input fields in T.Rodon support entry of complex characters, as in Asian languages.

Window layouts and multi-screen operation

T.Rodon lets you organize your detachable windows as needed, no matter what screen resolution you use or how many monitors you have connected. The positions and sizes of the windows are saved between sessions, so you always restore the most recently used layout when you log in. In case your workstation is equipped with touchscreen displays, multi-touch is fully supported.
