Node Metadata Pane

The Node Metadata Pane is used to display the current property and variable information for the workflow message. These properties will update and change based on the selected node in the workflow editor to show how the message is changing as it moves through the flow.

The pane has 2 separate tabs to show the message details coming from the previous node and what will be output by the currently selected node.

The information is organized in a tree based structure that can be collapsed or expanded as needed.
