Selected CAN-ID in Receive/Transmit window is not "sticky"

Post by Username » Wed 21. Sep 2016, 21:30

When observing a particular CAN-ID in the receive transmit window, if a particular message is selected, it does not remain selected when additional messages are received, because the message list gets re-sorted upon each newly appearing message. This is very frustrating when attempting to observe a particular message in real-time. Is there an option to keep the selected CAN-ID highlighted and in focus, regardless of any other messages that are subsequently appearing on the bus?

Hello,

you can use the filter mechanism to filter the desired message and display it only.

or use a symbol file and add the variable to the watch window.

you can also use a symbol file + filter mechanism or you can add different filters or if you are working with many symbols use "marked symbols"
