Currently, the only way to restore captured data from a file and display it in the waveform viewer is to use the following Tcl command:

display_hw_ila_data [read_hw_ila_data my_hw_ila_data_file.ila]

This Tcl command sequence reads the previously saved captured data from the ILA core and displays it in the Waveform window.

Note: The waveform configuration settings (dividers, markers, colors, probe radices, etc.) for the ILA Data Waveform window is also saved in the ILA captured data archive file. Restoring and displaying any previously saved ILA data uses these stored waveform configuration settings.
Important: Do NOT use the open_wave_config command to open a waveform created from ILA captured data. This simulator-only command does not function correctly with ILA-captured data waveforms.
