When I start a new job in ADEXL, it is named "Interactive.nnn" etc. I cannot edit that name while the run is in progress. Most of times I come back later and cannot recollect what that run was for. Is there a way to mention the name upfront before starting the job. Also at times the job gets stored in sub directories of totally different module - how to verify the saved location before starting the job.
If you enter (in the CIW, or in your .cdsinit):
envSetVal("adexl.historyNamePrefix" "showNameHistoryForm" 'boolean t)
Then when you hit the Run button a popup appears where you can type in the name you want (it adds a number to this to make it unique) and also notes as to what it is for if you want.
And how do you ascertain the directory where the run will be saved
Sorry - missed that bit of the question. I've not seen it saving it under a "totally different module" - that sounds rather odd and unexpected (and I don't recall seeing that happen).
It should be <SIMDIR>/<libName>/<cellName>/<adexlViewName>/results/data/<historyName>
The <SIMDIR> is what is said under Options->Save as the simulation results directory, and the lib/cell/view is the lib/cell/view of the ADE XL view. Note that if it's a maestro view (for Explorer/Assembler) then the "data" in that path is replaced by "maestro" (to avoid clashes). Under the history you get numbered directories for each point, with the testName under that.
