The state/status frame can be found near the bottom of any CLEO application that attaches to an YGOR manager. The frame provides information on the health of a manager (its status) and what the manager is currently doing (its state). The frame also contains three indicators whose color show whether or not the screen is currently 'connected' to a device. A timestamp, when appropriate, is included at the right of the frame for one of the manager's samplers. The 'ticking' of the timestamp should give you a sense of confidence that the connection to the manager is up and working.
The Status widget provides a text description of the Status (health) of a manager. The background of the widget will turn colors depending upon the severity of problems with the device. Here's a list of possible status values, the colors used, and a description of what the values mean:
The YGOR message window will show more detailed information whenever the status is other than 'clear'.
The State widget reports what the manager is currently doing. The background of the widget will turn colors depending upon the state of the device. Here's a list of possible state values, the colors used, and a description of what the values mean:
The three color indicators to the right of the State widget show whether the connections to YGOR are up (green) or down (red). The three indicators contain letters to remind you what connections they represent:
You should look at the YGOR fundamentals documentation for more information on what these mean.
Here's an example of what the state/status frame will look like if CLEO cannot connect to the application's manager. Note that even the time stamp will indicate something is amiss.
As a debugging tool, if you right double click the mouse anywhere inside a state/status frame, a popup window will appear that will tell you everything CLEO knows about the manager. You'll need to understand the concepts behind an YGOR manager to appreciate the information provided by the popup.
Note that we have repeated all of the information included in the application's state/status frame. Included on the popup is a "Menu Control" menu which will allow you to control the manager similar to what you can do with the application's menu bar Manager item.
