26.4. Module Menu

MATE communicates with a running MeVisLab instance to get information about a currently edited module, which is used for tasks like auto-completion. For this the MeVisLab instance might create the required module invisible to the user. The module menu allows for a direct handling of the attached module. If no attached module is available yet, it has to be created (loaded). For this, select the module in the Outline area and then click Create.

Once a module is attached, more options are available.

Click Reload to reload the module information. This is useful if the module files were changed (for example DLL, .script, or .def file).

Click Goto to select and center the associated module in MeVisLab. This is only available if the file has been opened from the context menu of an existing module in MeVisLab.

Run Tests will run the associated tests of an associated module in MeVisLab. If the currently edited file belongs to a test case instead this test case will be executed.

In the Files submenu, all source files related to the attached module are listed. Select one to open it in the editor.


Not all related files may be available as source, for example compiled modules delivered with the SDK.

Add To Project Workspace adds the files of the module to the Project Workspace as an automatic project if it isn't already contained there.
