Storyboard Designer provides a very rich set of functionality for application developers to use as they are building their applications. However, it may be the case that the embedded target system constrains which functionality should be used. In these situations, and in order to provide an appropriate level of guidance to application developers about what they can and can't use, Storyboard Designer provides the ability to limit what featues are available. This filtering happens only in the Designer user interface to filter the events, actions and render extensions that are appropriate for the configuration selected.
