Where To Find This Script

You can run this script by clicking on Scripts->Simulation->

Awr script page macro
ScriptPathScript → Simulation → Convert_Meas_To_Aplac
ButtonLabelRun Script
from AWRDE menu.


This script utility will switch all the simulation output in a project to use the Aplac simulators (or other simulators available). The intention of this script utility was to help users switch current projects to use the Aplac simulators since they are the premier simulators in the AWR design environment. Once the user runs the scriptutility, the following dialogue appears to ask for what kind of measurements the user wants to switch:

Image Modified

The settings are as follows:

  • Target Simulator: Measurements will be switched to this simulator.

  • Measurement Type: Select the type of simulations to convert. Linear is disabled by default since these are usually similar in speed as the default linear simulator.

  • Convert disabled measurements: Even if the measurement is disabled, it will be converted to the target simulator.

  • Leave copy of original measurements: This option will make a copy of the original measurement set to the target simulator instead of changing the current measurements. This allows you to compare both simulators.

Scripting Information

Scripts included in the install are configured to run directly from the NI AWR Design Environment from the Scripts menu.

Scripts that you download must be imported into a project or placed in your global scripts folder to use them. See Working with VB Scripts for information on how to use these scripts.

You can also customize the AWRDE to run scripts from hotkeys, menus, or toolbar buttons. See Working with VB Scripts for more information.

For complete information about the AWRDE API, see the AWRDE API Programming Guide Help in the AWRDE installation. You can also view our Scripting Website for more scripting examples.
