You can use the Signal List to control which Signals are displayed, to view Signal values, and to set values. If a Job contains hidden Signals, the HiddenSignal-btn icon is displayed at the top of the Job window.

To display the Signal List, click Show Signal List (ShowSLbtn) on the TestCase toolbar or Hidden Signal (HiddenSignal-btn) in the Job window. MxVDev displays the Signal List table that corresponds to the Job window:

SignalList

Four buttons are available to control display of Signals in the Job window:

ShowAS Show All Signals - Click to display all Signals in the Job window.

TS_btn Toggle Selection - Click to toggle display of all selected Signals. Hint: Hold down your mouse button and drag across rows in the table to select a group of Signals. You can also Ctrl-click to select or deselect a specific Signal in the table.

HideNC_btn Hide Signals with no change in their initial value - Click to hide unchanged Signals in the Job window. You can also use the Auto Add option to test these Signals without including them in the TestCase.

Hide1C_btn Hide Signals with only one transition - Click to hide Signals with one transition in the Job window.

Note: There is no limit to the number of Signals in a TestCase, however, a maximum of 200 Signals can be visible in the Job window. Use the options described above to select which Signals to display. To work around this limit, you can use multiple TestCases running concurrently. For example, you could put the input Signals in one TestCase and the output Signals in a another concurrently running TestCase. You can also use the Auto Add option to test Signals without including them in the TestCase.

Filter

Use the filter box to control display of Signals in the Signal List. You can use the * as a wild card. For example, enter L* to display only signals beginning with L.

Columns

Click on the column name to sort the signals by the data in that column. The Signal List has three columns you can use to enter data:

Show - When this box is checked, the signal is displayed in the Job window.

1st Trn Time (s) - Enter a value (in seconds) in this column to set the time of the first transition.

1st Trn Value - Enter a value in this column to set the value of the signal after its first transition.

The Cursor Value columns show the values of the signals at the cursor. If you place a measurement cursor, the columns show the values at that point. You can use the mouse or arrow keys to move the measurement cursor.

Cursor Value Actual - shows actual values. They are displayed in the same color as the actual value plot lines.

Cursor Value Specified - shows specified (expected) values.
