When saving captured I/O activity to send to another busTRACE user, or if you just want to help self-document a capture file, you can have busTRACE attach a user comment to any I/O.
In the I/O Capture List, simply right click on the I/O you want to attach a comment and select the Attach Comment option.
When you have finished entering the comment, click on the OK button. A red triangle will appear in the left most column of the I/O Capture List signifying that a user comment has been attached to this I/O.
To view the comment, simply move the mouse pointer anywhere on top of the I/O. A tool tip will appear with the user comment. If you want to remove a comment, simply right click on the I/O and choose the Remove Comment option.
Docked Pane - Attached User Comments
You can also configure busTRACE to show all user comments in its own separate docked pane. You can then click on the user comment to have busTRACE automatically select the I/O with the attached comment in the I/O Capture List.
