Content outdated

We are in the process of migrating all content to impulse version 2.0.

 In addition to the viewer and editor, there is a set of additional tabular presentation UIs in impulse. These tables allow to output the signal content using different forms.

You can choose to show different tables within impulse:

  • Signal Table: Display statistical informations about signals.
  • Value Table: Plots the sample values of signals.
  • Sample Inspection:  Display the details of a single sample.

You can display them if you open Window in the upper left toolbar, then choose Show View->Other; within the window that opens, you select impulse. There you find the tables.
Don't be confused with the wording 'view'. In impulse it's used to define a configured presentation of the viewer, eclipse uses this term for graphical frames inside of the IDE.

Value Table

The Value Table shows the different events within your signals as a table. This table displays the index and domain position (e.g., time) on the left-hand side and the value (plus optional value specific columns) of it on the right-hand side. When you choose multiple signals, the table additionally shows their names.

You control the Value Table with the toolbar in the upper right-hand corner of it. There you find:

  • Freeze Input
  • Refresh
  • Synchronize Selection

If you want to keep a certain display of your signals but need to change your editor or choose another signal you can click Freeze Input. This prevents your input from being changed.

You can use the Refresh button to update your table.

With Synchronize Selection you can synchronize the cursor of the viewer/editor with the table, which means the table displays the signal you choose with the cursor. This also works if you choose a signal within the table. The cursor will automatically change its position.

Sample Inspection

The Sample Inspection window lets you inspect the details of a sample. If you've opened the editor, the window has additional controls that let's you edit the actual samples.
The toolbar options
  • Freeze Input
  • Refresh
  • Synchronize Selection​
are the same as in the Value Table. 
In the head line (below the toolbar) you find the actual signal name and the index of the sample displayed. On the left-hand side you see two button to iterate forward and back.
Below there are two tables:
  • Format/Info: Show the value formatted in all available formats/infos.
  • Member: Shows the members of struct values or arrays.
At the bottom there are additional fields:
  • [xyz]: Shows the whole value of a selected format or member.
  • Bytes: Displays the byte representation of a value.
  • Image: If the value contains a compressed image, it will be shown in that field.
