I want to learn more about the specifics of the available controls and tag names used in .xml files for use with XGCONF, but I can't seem to find the documentation I am looking for.|
While XDCTools/RTSC is powerful in and of itself, I find XGCONF the icing on the cake to truly provide ease of use for modules. For the RTSC consumers that might not have a good understanding of how to create a .cfg file properly, XGCONF gives that extra bit to make the configuration step painless. The GUI also serves as a great reference later on after your code is working to display the configuration in a nice and orderly manner without having to read .cfg file.
So far, I have been managing to figure stuff out by examining the .xml files for SYS/BIOS and extensive experimentation. This sub-optimal.
I am guessing that the eclipse SWT widgets are used, but it appears you can't just use any widget. I have been figuring out the controls available and their properties by entering in 'control type="junk" badtag="junk" to cause an error so I can click the details box and have it show a message telling me what possible values it was expecting.
Is there any such documentation, or can someone point me to source code that I can examine for XGCONF or whatever code is doing the interpretation of these .xml files? I can not find XGCONF in Eclipse's RTSC svn. I'm guessing it is only a Texas Instruments kind of thing?
