Simulation extension for tau core mode. The simulation extension is a special extension that provides simulation objects. The official scheme name is ‘simulation’.
The main usage for this extension is to provide a useful value when using the Qt designer to design the GUI. The widgets have in their constructor a ‘designMode’ parameter that inside the designer is set to True by the different plugins that export the different tau widgets to the designer. This way the developer can have a better idea of what the GUI will look like in the end without connecting to the actual device in design time (which could be dangerous at times) even if the values don’t make much sence.
