Telemetry Viewer is a live telemetry viewer which displays custom built screens. Screens are configured through simple text files which utilize numerous build-in widgets.
File Menu Items
- Open a saved configuration
- Save the current configuration
The Open and Save Configuration options deserve a little more explanation. When you select File Open the Open Configuration dialog appears. It displays a list of all saved configurations (TVAC in this example). You select a configuration and then click Ok to load it. You can delete existing configurations by clicking the Trash icon next to a configuration name.
When you select File Save the Save Configuration dialog appears. It displays a list of all saved configurations (TVAC in this example). You click the Configuration Name text field, enter the name of your new configuration, and click Ok to save. You can delete existing configurations by clicking the Trash icon next to a configuration name.
Selecting a target from the Select Target drop down automatically updates the available screens for that target in the Select Screen drop down. Clicking Show Screen causes that screen to display.
Clicking New Screen brings up the new screen dialog.
Screens are owned by Targets so Select Target chooses where the screen will be created. Screen names must be unique so all the existing screen names are listed for that target. Screens can be based on a Packet such that all the items in that particular packet will be generated in a simple vertical screen similar to Packet Viewer. This is a good starting point for customizing a screen.
Clicking the pencil icon in the title bar of the screen brings up the edit dialog.
The screen source is displayed in an editor with syntax highlighting and auto-completion. You can download the screen source using the download button in the upper right or delete the screen using the trash icon in the upper left. Click Save to save the screen edits at which point Telemetry Viewer will re-render the screen.
Screen Window Management
All screens can be moved around the browser window by clicking their title bar and moving them. Other screens will move around intelligently to fill the space. This allows you to order the screens no matter which order they were created in.
Each screen has buttons in the upper right of the title bar. The line button minimizes the screen to effectively hide it. This allows you to focus on a single screen without closing existing screens.
The X button closes the screen.
