I was able to do this a while ago, but can’t seem to get it to work any longer.
Here are the steps I’ve used previously to add a new Instrument in TUI, but can’t now, the GUI seems stuck and I have to shut down my docker container:
- Started with an OpenTap docker container and installed the KS IO Lib and TUI
- Run: tap tui
- In the TUI, click Bench, then Instruments, which brings up the new Instruments panel
- Click the [+] entry, which brings up a choice of Generic SCPI Instrument and Demo
- Highlight the Generic SCPI Instrument and click enter key, this brings up the Instruments panel again, whereas before it would bring up an Instrument editor panel
So the GUI/TUI now looks like this and the [+] entry is no longer active (or it won’t accept mouse clicks or enter key or space key).
Any idea what might be going on? Again, at one time this week it was working in that I could add a real SCPI instrument with a TCP SCPI address and create a test step to try to execute a command against it. But now I’m stuck in the mud for the last 8 or 9 hours.
I clicked the on the panel and two new SCPI entries appeared, but again I can’t tell consistently how or when the panel will populate after clicking the [+] entry:
