Result manager

Many functions within NIP produce "results" which are plotted to the nip plot ( see section Nip plot). The Result Manager provides a mechanism to interrogate these results.

The Result Manager can be accessed via the "Results manager" command in the View menu on either the main menu or the menu bar of the nip plot. Alternatively the results can be accessed as a menu attached to the "Results" option on the nip plot menu bar. In this case the individual results are written in the same colour as the plots they refer to:

Each result is listed in the window containing the time the result was created, the name of the function which created the result and the result number. The number is simply a unique identifier to help distinguish between multiple results produced by the same function. The results are listed in time order, the oldest at the top.

Each item in the list is consuming memory on your computer. Running functions over and over again without removing the previous results will slow down your machine and it will, eventually, run out of memory. Removing items from the list solves this.

Pressing the right mouse button over an listed item will display a popup menu of operations to perform on this result.

Information

This option in the pop-up writes data about the parameters used to obtain the corresponding result.

List

This option in the pop-up writes all the numerical values for the result to the Output window. This should be used sparingly as it requires a lot of memory.

Configure

This option allows the line width and colour of the matches to be altered (see section Colour Selector). A colour browser is displayed from which the desired line width or colour can be configured. Pressing OK will update the nip plot.

Hide

This option removes the points from the nip plot but retains the information in memory.

Reveal

This option will redisplay previously hidden points in the nip plot.

Remove

This command removes all the information regarding this particular result and access to this data is lost.
