File list

All opened log files are listed in the Files window.

  • Select the respective file checkbox to include the file content in the next search.
  • Clear the respective file checkbox to exclude the file content from the next search.

Dictionaries list

FIXEye covers standard FIX-features by default, but you can work with non-standard FIX-dialects after loading special files (XML-format) that contain the necessary descriptions.

  • To add a dictionary file, on the File menu, click Load Dictionaries. You can also click the  icon on the toolbar. The third option is to right-click anywhere on the Files pane, and then click Add Dictionary(ies).

  • To remove a dictionary file, right-click the selected file, and click Remove Dictionary(ies).

Sessions list

All sessions found in opened log files are listed in the Sessions window.

  • Create groups to sort your sessions using a right-click menu.
  • Select a session check box to include the respective session in the next search.
  • Clear a session check box to exclude the respective session from the next search.

Customizing interface

You can adjust the viewing depending on how you arrange the windows in the FIXEye. The following options are just some of the ways that windows can be arranged:

  • Tab-dock windows to the search result frame.
  • Dock tool windows to the edge of a frame in the FIXEye.
  • Float windows over or outside the FIXEye.
  • Minimize tool windows along the edge of the FIXEye.

Tool windows can be docked to one side of a frame in the FIXEye:

  • Drug the window toward the middle of FIXEye window. Three arrows appear and point to the three edged of FIXEye window. The diamond only appears when you drag the window toward another tool window.
  • When the window you are dragging reaches the location where you want to dock it, the designated area is shaded.
  • To dock the window in the position indicated, release the mouse button.

Tool windows such as Files and Sessions support a feature named Auto-Hide. When a window is auto-hidden, its name and icon are displayed on a tab at the edge of the FIXEye.
To turn on Auto-Hide:

  • Click the tool window you want to hide.
  • Click the pushpin icon on the title bar of the window.

To Turn off Auto-Hide:

  • Click the window you want to keep visible.
  • Click the pushpin icon on the title bar of the window.

Tool windows can be undocked from the FIXEye and moved anywhere on the desktop.

  • Drug the tool window to the location you want.

Pre-defined filters

You can use different filters to show specific messages only.

  • In the Filter list, click a filter you want to apply.

Do one of the following:

  • To create a new filter, click <New>.
  • To modify the selected filter, click the Edit button.
  • To remove the selected filter, click the Remove button.
  • To reset the current filter, click [Default Filter].

When you are creating a new filter, you may indicate one or more conditions.

You can save a back copy of the current filter by clicking button in the Filter window.

You can address a field tag, which is a part of a repeating group while creating a new filter.

  • Type a repeating group tag, then type a dot character “.”, and a field tag. For example, 453.452 indicates that messages with a repeating group tag of 453 that includes tag of 452 will be filtered.

Custom view

You can customize a message view (a set of displayed columns) in the table.

  • In the View list, click a view you want to apply.

Do one of the following:

  • To create a new view, click <New>.
  • To modify the selected view, click the Edit button.
  • To remove the selected view, click the Remove button.
  • To reset the current view, click [Default View].

The “Compact” preset view allows showing messages in a compact form, i.e. numbers for tags and values without description.
The “Detailed” preset view allows showing maximum information about messages. All tag names except service fields are displayed and all field values are described.
The “Raw Data” preset view allows displaying messages in their raw view, i.e. as a row of symbols.

The “Colored” preset view allows displaying messages in different colors, i.e. a particular color is assigned to every message type, to facilitate visual perception of table data.

When you are creating a new view, you may indicate one or more conditions. Use to add fields and formatting rules and to delete them.
