Command Line Usage

Command Line Arguments

The FrontPanel executable may be started on the command line with some arguments to automate startup activities.

Loading a Bitfile

Use this argument to tell FrontPanel to startup, detect devices, and download the specified FPGA bitfile to the device.

FrontPanel.exe --load-bitfile=counters.bit

Loading a FrontPanel Profile

Use this argument to tell FrontPanel to startup, detect devices, and load the specified FrontPanel profile.

FrontPanel.exe --load-profile=counters.xfp

Selecting a Device by Serial Number

By default, FrontPanel will apply command line arguments to the first device detected.  You can optionally specify a device for subsequent command line arguments with this option.

FrontPanel.exe --device-serial=12340009819 \ --load-bitfile=counters.bit --load-profile=counters.xfp
