Here is an example of using the Tableau plug-in.

  • Step 1: Create a Tableau plug-in
Tableau Plug-in

The plug-in appears as a matrix with i rows and j columns.

  • Step 2: Set properties and values.

We will set the properties of this tableau to have 1 row and 4 columns.

Properties: 1 row and 4 columns

We will give the plug-in the values 10, 20, 30, and 40.

Set values
  • Step 3: Build structure.

We can see that the Tableau Plug-in has a single output pin, m.

Single m output pin

We are going to connect the m output of the Tableau Plug-in to a term, trial_term, which will then connect to a CodeChip, trial_each_term_1.

  • Step 4: Set up Spies.

Now we can see how the data or values entered into a Tableau Plug-in can be accessed.

Spy Plug-ins can display values

We use Spy Plug-ins to examine each value from the Tableau m output.
