Main Menu and Application Toolbar

The Application Toolbar contains buttons for most commonly used actions and settings.

Here is the list of the most important menu commands:

File
New Opens a new project. Ctrl+N
Open Opens an existing project. Ctrl+O
Open Example Opens an existing example project.
Open Tutorial Opens an existing tutorial project.
Save Saves the current project. Ctrl+S
Save As Saves the current project in a specified location.
Connect to Remote Executor Opens a window that provides connection with a remote Adaptive Vision Executor, allowing application deployment of the current project. See also Remote Executor for details.
Export to Runtime Executable Exports the current project to an executable file which can be run (but not edited) with Adaptive Vision Executor.
Generate C++ Code Creates a C++ program for the currently opened Adaptive Vision program. See also C++ Code Generator for details.
Generate .NET Macrofilter Interface Generates a .NET assembly which provides the chosen macrofilters as class methods. Generated assembly may be referenced in managed languages: C# or Visual Basic .NET. See .NET Macrofilter Interface Generator for more information.
Edit
Undo Reverts the last performed operation. Ctrl+Z
Redo Re-performs the operation reverted with Undo command. Ctrl+Y
Rename Current Macrofilter Renames current macrofilter. F2
Remove HMI Unbinds HMI from the current project and clears all the HMI controls.
Program
Startup Program (combo box) Selects a worker task from which the execution process will start. When the execution is paused, shows active worker tasks an allows the user to switch to them. See Testing and Debugging for more details.
Run Executes the program until all iterations are finished, the user presses Pause or Stop buttons or something else pauses program. See Testing and Debugging for more details. F5
Run Single Worker Executes the program running only the primary worker task until all iterations are finished, the user presses Pause or Stop buttons or something else pauses program. F5
Iterate Executes the program to the end of a single iteration of the outermost Task. See also Execution Process and Testing and Debugging for more information about iterations. F6
Pause Suspends the current program execution immediately after the last invoked filter (tool) is finished. Ctrl+Alt+Pause
Stop Stops the program immediately after the last invoked filter is finished. Shift+F5
Iterate Back Executes the program to the end of a single iteration, reversing direction of enumerating filters. See Testing and Debugging for more details. Shift+F6
Iterate Current Macrofilter Executes the current program to the end of the currently selected macrofilter. See Testing and Debugging for more details. Ctrl+F10
Step Over Executes the next single instance of a filter or a macrofilter, without entering into the macrofilter. F10
Step Into Executes the next single filter instance. If it is an instance of a macrofilter it enters inside of it. F11
Step Out Executes all filters till the end of the current macrofilter, and exits to the parent macrofilter. Shift+F11
Run with Adaptive Vision Executor Executes the program using Adaptive Vision Executor application installed on the local machine. Ctrl+F5
Diagnostic Mode Turns on or off Diagnostic Mode, which controls whether filters compute additional information helpful for program debugging, but resulting in a slower program execution.
Program Statistics Shows information about execution time of each filter in the selected macrofilter. F8
