Slide 9 of 27
The GUI display is divided into several areas; when the mouse cursor is over any field that can be changed or is associated with an action, that field changes colour to light blue. The green box at the top left of several of the fields indicates that those parts of the display are active and ready for input.
In the “Processing params” area (on the left) clicking on a field allows the user to type in new values using the keyboard. The fields are also kept up-to-date if the parameter is updated during processing (e.g. crystal mis-setting angles).
The “Main menu” consists of buttons with actions which are reasonably self-explanatory.
The “Output” area reflects values associated with the image displayed and mouse actions on the image, e.g. start and end phi values for the image or the resolution of a pixel at the cursor position.
The image display can be modified with the controls at the top right; also included is a button to allow the current view to be saved as a PostScript file for printing.
A field at the bottom of the display gives information which may be useful at different times in the processing, and a pop-up display informs the user whether the program is processing or waiting for an input.
