You can choose to show different views within Eclipse. One is the Signal Table and the other is the Value Table. You can let them be displayed if you open Window in the upper left toolbar, then choose Show View->Other, and within the window that opens you select Impulse. There you find the two views.

Value Table

The Value Table shows the different events within your file as a table. This table displays the domain (e.g. time) on the left side and the value of it on the right side. When you choose many signals the table additionally shows their names.

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

  • Set Input Source
  • Freeze Input
  • Set Input Mode
  • Refresh
  • Synchronize Selection

Set Input Source defines the source of the input shown. If you open it you can choose between Active Viewer/Editor and Selection. Active Viewer/Editor shows all the signals opened and displayed in your editor at the moment. Selection shows only those signals you choose from the tree hierarchy.

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 choose which signals are shown within your table with Set Input Mode. The default setting is Auto. Therefore the signal is displayed as soon as you select it. You additionally have the modes Children, Elements and Tribe. Children shows all the child elements of the selection, Elements shows all actually selected elements and Tribe shows all elements.

You can use the Refresh button to update your table if you changed something.

With Synchronize Selection you can synchronize the cursor of the 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.

Signal Table

When you open the Signal Table you just see the names of the signals you chose. The Signal Table is used to show an overview over statistical data of your signals, for example the number of events or when the first event appears.

To see the different data in the Signal Table you need to configure it. Therefor you use the screw driver in the upper right corner of the table window. Another window opens in which you can choose General, Filter or Columns.

General just displays settings you already made in the toolbar.

In Columns you need to set what you want to see. You right click the scope and choose a possible way of displaying from add. It can be name, location (the place where the signal is within the file) or signal. Under signal you can chose first event or number of events. The table on the left side changes depending on which settings you choose.

Filter is used to show only the signals you want. You right click the scope and can add Name filter or Signal type filter. With Name filter you can set a pattern of only the signals you want to see and with the Signal type filter you can set which kinds of signals you want to see.

All filters and columns can be disabled if they are not needed anymore. When you double click a filter a window with its dialogue opens. There you can see details about the signal.
