Programmable Data Validation
Automatic Unit Conversion
Validate data entries across multiple fields.
Programmable data validation is accomplished through the End Edit Check class function entry point in the class properties. The developer can supply a validation function, on a per class basis, that goes through all the input values entered by the user. It can be implemented in the supported programming languages for in-process simulator development. Examples of programmable data validation routines include:
Calculated Fields: data values are calculated from other input fields.
Cross Fields Validation: data values depend upon one or more of the other fields.
Other Rules: custom validation rules in addition to those provided by SansGUI.
The End Edit Check function is called when the user clicks on the Check Data button in a Properties dialog, as depicted in the next figure.
In addition to the End Edit Check function, SansGUI provides simulation developers with Resize for Load and Load Data class functions, which can be used to implement input data loader or preprocessors for a simulator. The two functions are called in sequence when the user clicks on the Load Data button in a Properties dialog, as shown below.
