Log Book


This provides a control panel to input logbook information to a notebook in an efficient and consistent manner.

LogBook Panel for Input


The start of every notebook is stamped with the date and experiment information.

Sections are provided to grab comments, graphics, history, and a folder directory.

The input comments can contain dynamic codes to execute a function or operation call.

  • %date() - inserts the date at that point in the notes
  • %MyStringList(10) - inserts the string results from MyStringList(10) at that point in the notes
  • #print date() - prints the date to the history area
  • #MyFunction(10,3,5) - runs my function with the given parameters
  • #{MyOperation parameters} - runs my operation with the given parameters
