Usage

  • Use Form at the top of the sequencer in a first branch to read out values at the beginning of the measurement.
  • Use Form in a branch with a parameter variation to repetitively read out values.


Applications

  • Create a form with all important parameters that are needed to perform a measurement. Thus, users have a central place to change the measurement and do not have to adjust parameters in each used module.
  • Use a form to read out parameters during the measurement that can be used to handover them to a meausurement instrument.
  • Combine Form with Condition by defining CheckBoxes and that define whether a certain branch of the sequence should be used. The Condition module then checks the user input and skips the current branch if needed.

Handling

  • Compose your form by adding different kinds of input fields.
  • These fields can be configured by double click.
  • Each field can be related to global placeholder that can be used in other input fields of SweepMe!
  • Use the right-click menu to move fields up and down.
  • Toggle your generated form into the DockingStation to use it in your application and to fix your configuration
  • Once the Form widget is placed in the DockingStation, the use can enter values, but the fields cannot be changed or modified anymore.

A Form widget looks like below:
