Graphical User Interface (GUI)¶
Autolab is provided with a user-friendly graphical interface based on the Device interface, that allows the user to interact even more easily with its instruments. It can be used only for local configurations (see local_config).
The GUI has three panels : a Control Panel that allows to see visually the architecture of a Device, and to interact with an instrument through the Variables and Actions. The Monitoring Panel allows the user to monitor a Variable in time. The Scanning Panel allows the user to configure the scan of a parameter and the execution of a custom recipe for each value of the parameter.
To start the GUI from a Python shell, call the function
gui of the package:
>>> import autolab >>> autolab.gui()
To start the GUI from an OS shell, call:
>>> autolab gui
