Veristand : Provide a Reference Manual for add-on development

When we have to develop add-ons for Veristand, we need to search into examples and existing add-ons to find how to implement some basic or advanced functionalities.
For example : using the node browser control in a labview dialog box, or finding the list of the optional inputs for custom workspace.
This is really time consuming !
Veristand is missing documentation for add-ons developpers. It would be good to have a Reference Manual like in TestStand.

Thank you very much J Maloney. I really got into the Adobe reference that you gave me a link for. It is great! I finally understand what is the difffernce between objects and adjustment layers and masks. I think I get the concept of channels as well. Suddenly Kelby's books are not just inexplicable sequence of buttons pressed. I actually at least in part understand (I think) on a conceptual level what is happening. This is an important breakthrough for me - the biggest since I have been able to calibrate my system and being able to sofproof the photos, so that in strong Solux (white) lighting I get images in print that are very similar to those on my monitor, when I put the two next to each other. I now beleive I will be able to learn to use PS reasonably effectively over time. I appreciate your help.
I also appreciate your most recent suggestion and your endorsement Jerome as well. I purchased the CS3 version of the Bible. I will see how well this will serve me. If I find that I need more or if I will not be able to breach the gap between CS 3 and 4 (I suspect I will be able to), I will get the reference you two suggest.
I am very appreciative of your help. PS is a challenge for me and you kicked me in the right direction. Pavel

  • A reference manual for Photoshop?

    There is a huge number of how to tutorials and books on the web in the books etc. What I really want is a reference manual where each command/feature is explained and options defined in the way manuals used to be written. I have some Scott Kelby books and others, but they all tell you how top do this and that, but I would really like to understand better what I am doing and then I will not need so much the how to books. Is there nothing like that available? Please tell me there is. Pavel

    Where can I get a complete and accurate version of the CLI Reference Manual for my SR520? I would like it to be in PDF form since I will need it most when my network is down and I am trying to repair my network.

    While the SR520-T1 does not support the CLI, the other models do support the CLI, but Enterprise provides this support with a contract. The admin guide can be found here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/500/520/software/configuration/guide/520scg.pdf

  • CORRECTION: Download Dreamweaver CS5 Reference Manual

    I really hate not having a printed reference manual for Adobe products.
    Where  can I download a reference manual for Dreamweaver?  I recently  downloaded an Adobe PDF manual for another application but didn't take  down the URL as I should have.
    Thank you,

    You are one of a few who still like having a whole printed manual.  Here's the link to the entire 700 page manual.
    http://help.adobe.com/en_US/dreamweaver/cs/using/dreamweaver_cs5_help.pdf
    Go to a local Staples or copy center and ask about pricing.  I think you will be surprised at how much it would cost and Adobe does it to help the environment and to keep costs down.

  • Looking for Java Reference Manual, Not User Manual

    I'm a mainframe programmer learning Java. I'm going thru "The Complete Reference Java" by Schildt. In the mainframe world, manuals are usually broken into reference manuals (shows just the syntax) and user manuals (shows how to do things). I'm looking for a pure Java reference manual that strips away all of the verbose explanation of how to do things and just lists in an organized way the pure syntax of Java. Does anyone know of such a manual? Everything I've found so far falls more into the user manual category that perhaps contains the syntax somewhere (if you look for it), but is overburdened with tons of explanations. Thanks.

    Thanks. What you provided is a bit like a reference manual and user manual combined into one. It has the complete syntax along with plenty of explanations. BTW, I think I know where Schildt got most of his material for his Complete Java Reference book. It's almost like he took the Java Language Specification book and reorganized it into a tutorial format.

  • Looking for a reference manual that actually describes in detail all attributes for a command

    I am using CS5. I am teaching myself Photoshop using their book, "Classroom in a book".
    Thought the lessons, they will suggest specific setting for command attributes without describing exacting what these values mean.. For example, on page 88 they give the student specific settings for the Refine Edge dialog bog under the Quick Selection tool. They say, "To prepare the edge for a drop shadow, set Smooth to 24, Feather to 0.5, Contrast to 12, and Shift Edge to -21". Note: I am calling things like Smooth, Feather, Contrast, etc command attributes.
    My question is not about this specific example, but all these attribute values for all the commands. For example, what does Shift Edge really do when negative or positive. My question is: does a reference, either a book, pdf, or a non-Adobe product (probably a book) exist that actually explains when each attribute actually does for every command? Basically looking for a boring detailed reference guide so when I am using a specific command, I can read about the attributes for the specific command and understand what the values really mean and not guess my trial and error.
    Thanks in Advance,

    For example, I just happen to have my book open to page 113 and it is showing me (at the bottom of the page) the dialog box for Layer Style.  I was hoping for a reference manual that explains every option in the that dialog box in detail and tells you what each option means and how it effects the image.
    I hope this clarifies what I am looking for.
    Here's a little snippet from the info about Layer Styles in the Adobe manual.
    Layer style options
    To the top
    Altitude For the Bevel and Emboss effect, sets the height of the light source. A setting of 0 is equivalent to ground level, 90 is directly above the layer. Angle Determines the lighting angle at which the effect is applied to the layer. You can drag in the document window to adjust the angle of a Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow, or Satin effect.
    Anti-alias Blends the edge pixels of a contour or gloss contour. This option is most useful on small shadows with complicated contours. Blend Mode Determines how the layer style blends with the underlying layers, which may or may not include the active layer. For example, an inner shadow blends with the active layer because the effect is drawn on top of that layer, but a drop shadow blends only with the layers beneath the active layer. In most cases, the default mode for each effect produces the best results. See Blending modes. Choke Shrinks the boundaries of the matte of an Inner Shadow or Inner Glow prior to blurring. Color Specifies the color of a shadow, glow, or highlight. You can click the color box and choose a color. Contour With solid-color glows, Contour allows you to create rings of transparency. With gradient-filled glows, Contour allows you to create variations in the repetition of the gradient color and opacity. In beveling and embossing, Contour allows you to sculpt the ridges, valleys, and bumps that are shaded in the embossing process. With shadows, Contour allows you to specify the fade. For more information, see Modify layer effects with contours. Distance Specifies the offset distance for a shadow or satin effect. You can drag in the document window to adjust the offset distance. Depth Specifies the depth of a bevel. It also specifies the depth of a pattern. Use Global Light This setting allows you to set one “master” lighting angle that is then available in all the layer effects that use shading: Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow, and Bevel and Emboss. In any of these effects, if Use Global Light is selected and you set a lighting angle, that angle becomes the global lighting angle. Any other effect that has Use Global Light selected automatically inherits the same angle setting. If Use Global Light is deselected, the lighting angle you set is “local” and applies only to that effect. You can also set the global lighting angle by choosing Layer Style > Global Light. Gloss Contour Creates a glossy, metallic appearance. Gloss Contour is applied after shading a bevel or emboss. Gradient Specifies the gradient of a layer effect. Click the gradient to display the Gradient Editor, or click the inverted arrow and choose a gradient from the pop-up panel. You can edit a gradient or create a new gradient using the Gradient Editor. You can edit the color or opacity in the Gradient Overlay panel the same way you edit them in the Gradient Editor. For some effects, you can specify additional gradient options. Reverse flips the orientation of the gradient, Align With Layer uses the bounding box of the layer to calculate the gradient fill, and Scale scales the application of the gradient. You can also move the center of the gradient by clicking and dragging in the image window. Style specifies the shape of the gradient. Highlight or Shadow Mode Specifies the blending mode of a bevel or emboss highlight or shadow. Jitter Varies the application of a gradient’s color and opacity. Layer Knocks Out Drop Shadow Controls the drop shadow’s visibility in a semitransparent layer. Noise Specifies the number of random elements in the opacity of a glow or shadow. Enter a value or drag the slider. Opacity Sets the opacity of the layer effect. Enter a value or drag the slider. Pattern Specifies the pattern of a layer effect. Click the pop-up panel and choose a pattern. Click the New Preset button          to create a new preset pattern based on the current settings. Click Snap To Origin to make the origin of the pattern the same as the origin of the document (when Link With Layer is selected), or to place the origin at the upper-left corner of the layer (if Link With Layer is deselected). Select Link With Layer if you want the pattern to move along with the layer as the layer moves. Drag the Scale slider or enter a value to specify the size of the pattern. Drag a pattern to position it in the layer; reset the position by using the Snap To Origin button. The Pattern option is not available if no patterns are loaded. Position Specifies the position of a stroke effect as Outside, Inside, or Center. Range Controls which portion or range of the glow is targeted for the contour. Size Specifies the radius and size of blur or the size of the shadow. Soften Blurs the results of shading to reduce unwanted artifacts. Source Specifies the source for an inner glow. Choose Center to apply a glow that emanates from the center of the layer’s content, or Edge toapply a glow that emanates from the inside edges of the layer’s content. Spread Expands the boundaries of the matte prior to blurring.
    Style Specifies the style of a bevel: Inner Bevel creates a bevel on the inside edges of the layer contents; Outer Bevel creates a bevel on the outside edges of the layer contents; Emboss simulates the effect of embossing the layer contents against the underlying layers; Pillow Emboss simulates the effect of stamping the edges of the layer contents into the underlying layers; and Stroke Emboss confines embossing to the boundaries of a stroke effect applied to the layer. (The Stroke Emboss effect is not visible if no stroke is applied to the layer.)
    Technique Smooth, Chisel Hard, and Chisel Soft are available for bevel and emboss effects; Softer and Precise apply to Inner Glow and Outer Glow effects.
    Smooth Blurs the edges of a matte slightly and is useful for all types of mattes, whether their edges are soft or hard. It does not preserve detailed features at larger sizes. Chisel Hard Uses a distance measurement technique and is primarily useful on hard-edged mattes from anti-aliased shapes such as type. It preserves detailed features better than the Smooth technique.
    Chisel Soft Uses a modified distance measurement technique and, although not as accurate as Chisel Hard, is more useful on a larger range of mattes. It preserves features better than the Smooth technique. Softer Applies a blur and is useful on all types of mattes, whether their edges are soft or hard. At larger sizes, Softer does not preserve detailed features.
    Precise Uses a distance measurement technique to create a glow and is primarily useful on hard-edged mattes from anti-aliased shapes
    such as type. It preserves features better than the Softer technique. Texture Applies a texture. Use Scale to scale the size of the texture. Select Link With Layer if you want the texture to move along with the layer as the layer moves. Invert inverts the texture. Depth varies the degree and direction (up/down) to which the texturing is applied. Snap To Origin makes the origin of the pattern the same as the origin of the document (if Link With Layer is deselected) or places the origin in the upper-left corner of the layer (if Link With Layer is selected). Drag the texture to position it in the layer.

  • Brand new Manual for Final Cut Pro X

    This is a support forum for FCP X so I was wondering if it is allowed post here the information that I just finished a brand new Manual for this program "Final Cut Pro X - How it Works". It is available from my website as a pdf file in 11x8.5 format.
    http://DingDingMusic.com/Manuals/
    I'm writing "Graphically Enhanced Manuals"  for many years now (mostly for Logic Pro) and applied the same concept to the new FCP X. I thought it is especially helpful with all those changes in FCP X to provide lots of graphics and diagrams to help to understand the fundamental changes under the hood and the new concepts that shocked so many editors.

    David,
    thanks for the link. I read through it and you are right, It looks like I'm in violation of the Terms of Use.
    However, there are a two things that I find interesting.
    There is no acknowledgment whatsoever or any "thank you" from Apple to the potential participant for doing Apple's work for FREE, that is - providing appropriate customer support. Many users, including you David, are spending countless hours to help Apple customers.
    Not only does Apple take that service for granted, it also prohibits those who help others to list at least their own website, to let people know what the helpful user is doing for his day job. How about if Apple would prohibit the exchange of business cards at their WWDC for all participants or not allowing their speaker to mention their product or business.
    This is an "Apple Support Community" where Apple expects free "Support" help from their customers but overlooks the "Community" part. It doesn't have to go all myspace-style, but  you want to get to know the people (especially the helpful and competent ones) and what is wrong to have their website listed in their signature or one line about their new book or video tutorial. As long as it is topic related and not about their sports memorabilia business on eBay.
    Letting users know that there is a new book or video or podcast available about the product on the Forum  IS HELPFUL to the user community regardless if the post is coming from someone who used the product or the author himself.
    The only legal exception I found in the legal document is:
    "Do not use the Site to sell or market your products to others and do not post a URL unless it directly answers a user’s question"
    That means I can answer a question with a link to my book and the reference to the page number where I explain or answer that topic. Everybody can figure out how to play around that system so why not go the common sense route and get rid of the questionable restrictions in the first place.
    And - if you listen Apple - at your next quarterly results meeting, between all those big sales and profit numbers, a nice little thank you to all those "free customer support" on the forums would be nice.
    (Was this again a violation of "2.2 Do not add Submissions ... Discussions of Apple policies or procedures"? - I don't know. I usually have a lawyer sitting next to me when I'm writing Apple posts, but he went out for lunch)

  • Looking for a manual for the Historical Data Viewer Lookout 6.1

    Is there a manual on the Historical Data Viewer (Measurement and Automation Explorer)?
    I have never logged any analog data, but want to log (to historical data) the battery voltage at a remote site during a power outage.
    I have the object established and have a display showing the real-time battery voltage. I have selected logging and have set the resolution and the deviation.
    I am stuck where it comes to the historical data viewer. I believe that I need to set up a trace to view the data, but can not find a manual for the  Historical Data Viewer (Measurement and Automation Explorer) so that I can read up on it.
    Does anyone have a link to a manual?
    Thanks, Alan

    You have to configure the Scale parameter of Pot in Lookout. The Historical Data Viewer just reads data from database the show it. It can't scale it.
    But I can't find a way to add a reference line to the view. Maybe this can be a new feature.
