CanEasy – message, signal and attribute editor (tips & tricks)


It’s time for the fine-tuning
Define the properties of messages, included signals and additional attributes. Select a transmission scheme, create multiplex messages and create signals from scratch – bit by bit.

CanEasy message editor – the message editor
You can access the message editor from the context menu of each message. The editor enables you to configure all messages of an ECU.

The displayed name and description are pulled from the data base. If you enter a new name into the respective field, this name will be used instead throughout the simulation. You can also add a detailed description that will be displayed in panels and other places.

Message attributes are the unique identifier (ID), whether the message uses the standard or the extended ID format and the number of data bytes inside the message.

Transmission control
Depending on the selected bus type and configuration (e.g. CAN or LIN), you can choose several options for message transmission, e.g. cyclical or spontaneous message sending.

You can reach the signal editor from the context menu of each signal. Using the editor, you can edit all signals of the current message. Important settings are signal type, position inside the message, byte order (Motorola or Intel), and the definition of multiplexors. In addition, you can create new signals.

Attribute editor
The attribute editor enables you to add, edit, or delete attributes for buses, ECUs, messages, and signals. Attributes are additional properties of data base objects, typically created upon data base generation. Via the attribute editor, these values can also be set manually.

CanEasy uses three attribute types:

  • Internal attributes: refer to a single data base object only.
  • Default attributes: can only be created inside a bus and refer to the bus’s child objects. For instance, you could create a default attribute for all signals belonging to the bus.
  • Attribute references: are created automatically as soon as a default attribute is created and refer to this attribute. If the value of the referenced attribute is changed, all reference values change as well.


CanEasy is a Windows-based automatically configured simulation, analysis and test environment that optimally supports all cases of application in ECU engineering and development:
simulating complex bus systems, analyzing communication in a whole range of ways – with high productivity from the very beginning thanks to automation with an incredible amount of flexibility.
