Spreadsheets in Dialogs

You can choose to display an internal SIMUL8 spreadsheet in a custom dialog. This is great way to get flexibility in how you present information to your user. It's also the best format when you need the user to enter lots of data point.

Adding a spreadsheet is really easy. Just click the spreadsheet button and select from the spreadsheet you want to display. By default it's added with the cell reference [1,1] change this to the last bottom left cell you want to be displayed.

The spreadsheet will be displayed without header rows and will automatically add scroll bars if required. You might also want to check out the cell protection features in spreadsheets that will prevent the user editing cells you don't want them to. This feature is only available in SIMUL8 2012 and higher.
