Configuration of the Custom Instrument component is carried out from within the Custom Instrument Configuration dialog (Figure 1). We briefly visited this dialog when capturing the design, in order to define the instrument's interface IO signals.
In this part of the tutorial, we shall fully configure the instrument, customizing it to meet the needs of our simple design project. This configuration will involve:
- Defining base instrument options, including specification of the configuration file and how it is retrieved by Altium Designer
- Creating the custom GUI - using a variety of elements to monitor and control our IO
- Writing the underlying DelphiScript used to control the output to the User LEDs on the Desktop NanoBoard.
