if you want to make the new models you created appear in the LIBPF user interface, you need to tweak the UIPF.app/Contents/Resources/types.txt file
assuming the UIPF application package is inside your development folder as suggested in the Running your own kernel from the LIBPF user interface on OS X howto, you can edit it with:
open -a TextEdit Desktop/LIBPF_SDK_osx_1.0.2346/UIPF.app/Contents/Resources/types.txt
you will see that the file contains triplets of lines, separated by empty lines; for example the LIBPF user interface shows DeltaT as the first instantiatable type because types.txt contains:
Calculate fuel combustion adiabatic temperature change
this is the meaning of the three lines:
- the first line is the type name (case sensitive!)
- the second line is the description
- and the third line is the parent type; instantiable types are only those with
FlowSheetas parent type.
just add your types to the types.txt file and restart the LIBPF user interface !
in the screenshot I can only see the last line test_McfcCcsMcc (that’s the OK for the 1st line: type name), but did you write after that the 2nd line (description) and the 3rd line (parent type) ? please copy-paste those lines here
make sure there is a carriage return on the last line, otherwise it will not pick it up !
did you restart the user interface (UIPF) ? is it the UIPF application package is inside your development folder ?
tail Desktop/LIBPF_SDK_osx_1.0.2346/UIPF.app/Contents/Resources/types.txt and copy-paste the response here as text, not as screenshot
MBP-di-Marco:~ marcocescocasanova$ tail Desktop/LIBPF_SDK_osx_1.0.2346/UIPF.app/Contents/Resources/types.txt
natural gas combined cycle with integrated fuel cell for carbon capture, with intermediate fidelity 3x2 model for FC and 2-stage low-P cascade, feed to GMB
Single monocell with intermediate fidelity model for FC
test flowsheet for MCFC for CCS with cathode recycle
anyway to restart i quit LIBPF interface and then opened it again
maybe i’m wrong!.. when the program it’s close i go in my application package then i open it! or i have to push something else?
looks fine to me! tomorrow in the office I’ll test it here on OS X and will get back to you sorry for the trouble
ok, i’m waiting tomorrow! meantime i show to barbara bosio the results in monocle and choose a title for the thesis
sorry this works like a charm here; I have typed some test lines in types.txt:
and there it comes:
