Hi Chris,

The pin's are pre-sorted already in the Tableview.
It sort's the pin's for the component. I didn't see this routine showing up in the hal source code.

One great improvement would be the last search or last view function.
Ok

Attached a very basic example of a halview in 3d. (ps. remember the axis gui has over 700+ pins, see previous post)
It's not documented but for the colors:

Purple = component.
Orange = float pin
Red = bit bit, status off
Green = bit pin, status on
Cyan = S32 pin
Yellow = U32 pin

Then i adapted arrows (in z+ direction) for port direction "IN" and "OUT" to the bitpins, these are 2 tones of brown.

In this way it can be build up in z direction. Then the signals could be connected with lines.

Let me know your suggestions.

Hi Grotius
This matrix looks very nice. Perhaps a little easier to read horizontally. And usually you take the halshow when something goes wrong. And the reason is usually a typo or a broken chain. How about if a sheet only knows all your halfile pins and show the route with these blocks and colors horizontally.
Then select chains and shift to second sheet to make it easier to observe. And this sheet remains even after the restart until you change it.
Practically like the ladder, but then you will only see errors and not everything. That would be pretty cool.

Hi Chris,

This pins is what you see. It are the colored boxes.

I have to think about implementation some more.

Each item you see, can be clicked. When clicked i can code that is show's related data.

Attached picture is when halview is rotated to horizontal by the rotate box.
The blue lines are all the signals of the axis gui project.
This axis gui project has 31 signals. Each signal may contain readers and writers.

It isn't showing internal component connections lines from pin to pin, they are now invisible.

You see one component is huge. It's like a tower to the moon.

Hi Grotius
Yes i forgot, some components have lots of pins.
But the idea is very nice. Makes diagnosis easier for mechanics too. They always need pictures.:)

Hi,

For now i have finished the program. You can download it to give it a try.

It has the watchlist :

1. The watchlist is auto saved.
2. The watchlist is loaded after program restart.
3. You can clear the watchlist.

It has a halcommand input and a halcommand verbose output.

During install it will create a desktop launcher into the system menu, and it will create a ldconfig to link the liblinuxcnchal.so.

So far as i can see it works.

Download .deb installer :
sourceforge.net/projects/halview/

Maybe drop the pins that are not connected from the viewer?

Hi Andy,

It shows the current loaded hal config. It's tested with a quite huge halconfig, the standard axis gui template.

A future plan could be using it to create hal files.

I thought that it looked to be showing all pins of the loaded modules. I was suggesting only showing _used_ pins of loaded modules.
(Though you also want to be able to see unused pins, so you can see which ones need to be connected)
