OML Command Window

Enter, execute and display the OML commands and script outputs.

There are separate Command Windows for each language, accessible from the View menu.

Figure 1.


When commands executed in OML result in printing large set of data, a pagination mechanism can be used to navigate more easily in the large data set. If a command such as the one below is executed, 40,000 elements will be printed.

Figure 2.

If pagination is ON, the Command Window is filled within its limits (size) and you are prompted to navigate.

Press q to quit the current pagination. In case of nested data, press e to exit the pagination for all elements.
Tip: This feature can be turned OFF from the Preferences panel.

Command Window Error Messages

If you execute a script and an error message is displayed in the Command Window, the error acts as a hyperlink, allowing you to click it and go to this line in the Editor. This only applies to open scripts.
