Configuring the modules

The Generic Configuration Editor is the central tool for editing ECU configurations. The content of this editor is rendered out of the schema of the module that belongs to a configuration. The content below the header depends on what you are currently viewing. Example: If you open a subcontainer, the editor will show the content of the subcontainer.

Generating the code

After you have finished configuring your project, you can generate the source code of it. The resulting code depends on the values you have entered in the Generic Configuration Editor.

  1. Before generating the code, verify the project to identify errors. To do this:
    • Select an ECU configuration node within the project from the Project Explorer.
    • Click the Verify selected project button from the tool bar.
      A dialog window opens and the tool starts to verify the project. The window closes automatically when the verification of the project is completed.
      The result of the verification is written to the Error Log view.
  2. To generate the code, select Generate Project from the context menu of the required ECU configuration node.
