1341 - FEATURE: InputMask items appear gray for clear understanding of their state
There are two ways that one can disable an input mask. From the specific per input mask itself or globally by setting the device to not open. An author may determine to disable an input mask for a number of reasons. For example, if the hardware device is not attached to a computer in a certain lab (and it is in another) or during debugging purposes, they may want to try things out and have them not included during formal data collection.
Disable Input Masks
To disable a specific input mask, simply uncheck the item in the Duration/Input property page. When the input mask is disabled, it essentially is no longer part of the experiment. No code is generated for it and cannot be accessed.
Select a Device to not open
To select all operations from a device to be ignored, uncheck the box next to it in the Experiment Object. Doing so essentially removes the device from the experiment. The input mask object items associated with the device remain in each object Duration/Input property page, but are disabled.
The Duration/Input Property Page Interface
Under normal operation when an input mask is enabled AND the device is set to open, the experiment author can select the input mask and edit its properties.
When an input mask is disabled (from the two above methods), it becomes disabled and is essentially not part of the experiment. It remains a part of the interface in a disabled state so that if the author chooses to enable it, the settings initially entered will remain in tact.
