SmartPlug Graph GUI

This is what it looks like, details on each part below. Still working on it, mostly to clean up the details. Note that this screen shot was taken during a debugging session and has some artifacts that will soon disappear, then a new screen shot should be placed here.

Keeping screen shots up to date is a pain, these may lag the actual application which should look and perform better as time goes by.

System Buttons

These buttons are also present both the SmartPlug and the SmartPlug Graph application.

  • <Edit Parms> >Open the application file using the system editor, after the file has been modified. The system can be quickly restarted using the Restart button.
  • <Restart> >Quickly restarts the system after the file is changed or any time you want to restart the system from its current defaults
  • <Help> >Open help file ( which mostly links to this wiki ?? )
