A Group is a collection of expandable and collapsible categories, to which you can add signals and buses in the wave configuration to organize related sets of signals. The group itself displays no waveform data but can be expanded to show its contents or collapsed to hide them. You can add, change, and remove groups.

To add a Group:

  1. In a wave configuration, select one or more signals or buses to add to a group.
    Note: A group can include dividers, virtual buses, and other groups.
  2. Select Edit > New Group, or right-click and select New Group from the popup menu.

A Group that contains the selected signal or bus is added to the wave configuration.

A Group is represented with the Group button.

The change is visual and nothing is added to the ILA core.

You can move other signals or buses to the group by dragging and dropping the signal or bus name.

You can move or remove Groups as follows:

  • Move Groups to another location in the Name column by dragging and dropping the group name.
  • Remove a group, by highlighting it and selecting Edit > Wave Objects > Ungroup, or right-click and select Ungroup from the popup menu. Signals or buses formerly in the group are placed at the top-level hierarchy in the wave configuration.

Groups can be renamed also; see Renaming Objects.

The Delete key removes the group and its nested signals and buses from the wave configuration.
