Title: How do I save the GUI inteface in the QATK Script Generator
Post by: cfdee001 on November 15, 2020, 15:56
Hi,

Anyone know how to save the GUI interface  in the QATK Script Generator so that I can easily change the parameters in the GUI mode for similar simulation with slightly different parameters?
Please see the attachment

You may use Templates in the GUI, as described in this guide, https://docs.quantumatk.com/guides/scripter/templates/templates.html.

Hello, Petr!

May I use a script langugae to substitute the window operation? I guess there was a python object to do this and I could use it to generate a new scripte file for ATK. This function can really reduce the work for high-throughput screening.

Yes, all tasks in QuantumATK are evaluated through special Python scripts. You may save the script from the Script Generator (File > Save) and open it in any editor (or the built in editor in QuantumATK). To learn how to use Python scripts instead of the GUI see: https://docs.quantumatk.com/manual/Python.html

For information on how to configure the calculation through Python see https://docs.quantumatk.com/manual/NLRefMan.html, but the easiest is probably to do some changes in the GUI and save them as a Python script and see what was changed.
