The simulation control is the left panel of the simulator. It is used to control the simulation and to select the (symbolic) state or transition to be visualized in the other two panels of the simulator. The control panel is divided in two parts:
The upper part is used for performing step-by-step simulation. A list view displays the enabled transitions, with the currently selected transition highlighted. Pressing the Next-button causes the simulated system to take the selected transition. The Reset-button is used to reset the simulated system to its initial state.
The lower part of the control panel has a view displaying the generated trace. The displayed trace is an alternating sequence of control location vectors and transitions. The simulation always progresses from the highlighted element in this view. It is possible to change the selection using the mouse.
The six buttons below the trace view have the following semantics:
The slider at the bottom of the control panel is used to control the speed used when traces are replayed and when random simulation is performed.
