Selecting Transaction Bars

Place your cursor on a transaction bar and left-click to select the transaction bar, which is highlighted with a double border as shown in the following figure:

Figure 1. A Selected Transaction Bar

If the selected transaction bar is a member of a group of related transaction bars, arrows appear called associations connecting the related transaction bars. The rest of the objects in the wave window appear dim to highlight the group of transaction bars. The following figure shows a selected transaction bar and its related transaction bars connected with associations.

Press the Esc key to clear the transaction bar selection.

Tip: To reposition the main cursor within a transaction waveform, hold the Ctrl key and left click at the desired cursor time.

Navigation Transactions Using Associations

When you click on one end of an association, the selection moves to the transaction bar at the other end of the association, and the wave window scrolls so that the other end is in view.

Note: The wave window might not scroll if the other end is already in view.

Tool Tips

When you hover over a transaction bar or an association using your mouse, a tooltip displaying extra information about the transaction bar or association might appear depending on the type of protocol instance interface.
