A tkinter-based front-end GUI for trigger and monitoring hardware tests based on the ATE package
Tk-Automated Test Environment (TkATE)
The Automated Test Environment is a Python library
which provides useful structure for test creation and execution, but does not provide a user-defined
method of controlling that test environment. The purpose of this project is to provide the
start button and to provide visual feedback as to the actual test that is executing. The
implementation is done using a
tkinter.Frame subclass which may be embedded into any tkinter-style
Installation is as easy as
pip install tkate.
You must set up your test so that it can successfully execute on the ATE. Once it is set up there, then you are just a couple of lines away from converting an ATE-based test to a TkATE.
We will start with the example application located within the ATE repository. The high-level functional bits are copied here for reference:
# create the sequence of test objects sequence = [CommunicationTest(), PumpFlowTest()] ts = TestSequence(sequence=sequence, auto_run=False, loglevel=logging.DEBUG) # start the test as many times as you wish! for _ in range(3): ts.start() sleep(2.0)
Note that the test was simply started using the
TestSequence.start() method. Since we are
going to have a test frame that comes with TkATE, then we won't require the automated start and
can, instead, rely on the user button supplied. Our complete sequence could be as simple as:
# create the sequence of test objects sequence = [CommunicationTest(), PumpFlowTest()] ts = TestSequence(sequence=sequence, auto_run=False, loglevel=logging.DEBUG) window = tk.Tk() tkate_frame = TkAteFrame(window, ts) tkate_frame.grid() window.mainloop()
Note that most of the added code is related to simply creating the
window object within
TkAteFrame is to be embedded.
There are two tests that are executed here, one
CommunicationTest and one
of various possible scenarios are shown here:
Communications Test Failure
Flow Test Failure
