The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:


Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to edit the selected waveform.

Access

This command can be accessed from the SimData Editor by:

  • Choosing the Wave » Edit Wave command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button on the SimView toolbar.
  • Right-clicking on a waveform's name and choosing the Edit Wave command from the context menu.

Use

First, ensure that the waveform you wish to edit is selected in the Waveform Analysis window. This is achieved by clicking on the waveform name (a selected waveform will become bolder in color and have a dot to the left of its name).

Launch the command - the Edit Waveform dialog appears. Use this dialog to modify the existing waveform - by creating a mathematical expression involving it - or replace it entirely, by selecting an alternate waveform from the list of all available simulation waveforms that data has been collected for.

Tips

  1. When a waveform is selected, filtering is applied, using the name of the waveform as the scope. All other waveforms in the active chart with different names will be masked (becoming dimmed). The extent of the masking - how dimmed the non-selected waveforms become - can be controlled through the use of the Mask Level slider bar, accessed by clicking the Mask Level button, located at the bottom-right of the Waveform Analysis window. If more than one waveform of the same name exists in the active chart, the non-selected instances will remain fully visible.
