How do I show the ChIPS GUI?


The GUI for ChIPS lets you easily modify a visualization.

The GUI is available whether you use ChIPS directly or indirectly (e.g. from Sherpa or Prism). It can be shown by using the

chips> show_gui()

command or by using the 'Show GUI' option from the right-mouse-button menu in the ChIPS window. The GUI can be closed and re-created multiple times within a session, or left running as you run commands.

The Starting ChIPS thread has more information on using the GUI, or help can be found using ahelp chipsgui or the Help menu entry in the GUI.
