Stx window.png

The Log window is actually the controlling window of STx. If you close this window, all STx applications will close too. The File menu provides access to the Setup and Control dialog (to make things more interesting, the menu item is not called "Setup and Control", though), and to the Settings dialogs.

If you maximize the STx Log window you can see the STx log. This is especially useful if you encounter problems running STx or if you are a macro application developer, you can write messages to this window using the WRITELOG command.

See the following explanations for details.

The Run menu allows you to run the following applications:

  • Real-Time Analyser - a real-time signal analyser
  • FindFile - an application for finding files on disk for importing into STx.
  • BScript - a command interpreter also known as the Console.
  • Recorder - a simple signal recording application.
  • DataSet - the Workspace application (the default application and also called the DataSet for historical reasons).

The Program Log

You can access the STx program log by enlarging or maximizing the Log window. The program log is used to show STx status messages.
