Our Did You Know series brings some of Initial State’s amazing features to attention while giving tips and tricks on how to make the most of them.
Did you know that you can search for a value, string, or state within a signal? It’s as easy as selecting the signal you want to search in and typing what you’re searching for in the box in the top right corner of the window. When you hit enter, a new “Search” signal will be created right above your selected signal. This new signal will consist of flags indicating where your query is present.
You can use operators to search as well. Below is a list of accepted search queries:
- >, <, >=, <= – greater than, less than, greater than or equal to, less than or equal to (a number)
- !=, == – does not equal, does equal (a number)
- Numbers – can be positive or negative and have decimal places
- Strings – only searching for part of a phrase will return all strings containing that part (i.e. “on” will mark “LED on” and “button”)
- States – True/False, on/off, up/down
Now you can easily see every time something happened!
