Scripting means that various Analyzer functions are executed one after another.


  1. Executing CAL file 1

  2. Executing CAL file 2

  3. Displaying specific template only of fastest lap

  4. Exporting data only of fastest lap as csv file


Scripts are always executed from top to bottom


Scripts can be started either from Analyzer menu directly, via WinARace toolbar button or via AutoCalc routine

When starting via WinARace toolbar, a script can be executed for mulitple in WinARace selected measurements for recalculating already done measurments.


Scripts are used to automate the Analyzer

Create Script

Via menu Functions script menu can be opened.


Open script menu

Via script menu all script settings can be done

    Excel files to be printed must be prepared earlier and saved in the Race folder (depending on your version, Race 2023 for example: C:ProgramDataRace2023Excel SheetsAnalyzer)

  • Print Manager: Print a set of information configured in the print manager. Select the print manager settings file in the first parameter. Choose a print file name in the second parameter. This will copy an image of the print file into the chosen file

  • Template: Set template to be shown in moving window

  • External program: Start external program

  • Cycle laps:

  • Valid laps only: Takes only valid laps into account

  • Cycle downwards*:

Execute Script

Via Analyzer menu (single MES)


Start script via Analyzer menu Functions for currently in Analyzer loaded MES via Run script

Via WinARace toolbar (multiple MES)

At execution via WinARace toolbar, always the script is executed for the currently in WinARace selected measurement!


When selection mulitple measurements in WinARace, the scrips is executed for all selected measurements one after another automatically!


Thereby a lot of already available measurements can be recalculated automatically! So execution of a lot of measurements can also take serveral minutes/hours so start e.g. during night when 2D must not be used!

Add script to WinARace toolbar


By right-clicking on WinARace toolbar, a new button can be added


Toolbar setting menu

  • Select a link name: Select a program to execute script. Scripts are executed by 2D Analyzer. A sub-application of Analyzer called AutoAna.exe is especially designed for toolbar use, because with AutoAna.exe the script can also be executed via toolbar also when a measurment is already open in normal Analyzer

  • Enter additional parameter: Additional parameter defined what should be done when pressing the toolbar button.
    • /S= defines the script to be executed (/S=Doku)

    • /U= defines the user to be used for execution (/U=FS)

  • Icon: Select icon to be displayed in toolbar

  • Shortcut: Select shortcut to execute toolbar button via keys

  • Program parameter: The following parameters must be set for correct execuition of script via toolbar
    • Use measurement parameter

    • Full Pathname

    • Single run / each measurement: Enables the execute script for every in WinARace selected measurement

    • Wait for termination: Ensures that at execution the script is executed to mulitple measurements one after another

  • Save: Save toolbar button settings

Execute script via WinARace toolbar

  1. Select measurements the script should be executed on in WinARace

  2. Press respective WinARace toolbar button to start execution

  3. Wait until execution is finished

Via AutoCalc Routine

A script can also be executed automatically after each measurement download by using CalcTool and AutoCalc routine.

For this the CalcTool Execute command is used.

  1. Create new CAL-File in Software folder

  2. Insert following line and adjust parameters /S=Doku, /U=FS

Execute(AutoAna.exe, /S=Doku, /U=FS, <EventDir>\<MesName>)
  1. Open AutoCalc routine and add created CAL-file routine

  2. Execute AutoCalc routine for testing


At a script at first a CAL file calles 2D_ThrottlePerLap.CAL should be executed. The created channels are part of a MinMax table called Speed which then should be exported as CSV file to Event directory.


  1. Executing 2D_ThrottlePerLap.CAL from directory 2DCalFiles to have channels available in current measurement


Executing 2D_ThrottlePerLap.CAL

  1. Adding 2D_ThrottlePerLap.CAL channels to MinMax table Speed


Adding channels Throttle_MOV, Throttle_Time_100 and Throttle_Time_Open to MinMax table Speed

Export settings:

  1. Opening MinMax table setting via right-clicking and sub-menu option Export


Export settings MinMax table


When using MinMax table export via script only the fields Type, Seperators and Export to file are important!

  • Type: Chosing file type for export file

  • Seperators: Selecting list and decimal seperators for exported file

  • Export to file:
    • Append file if existing: When at export in directory to export a file with same name specified in export settings is found, this file is used also used for current export (otherwise new file with extension (…) is created)

    • Insert lines (at bottom): At file with same name, the new lines are inserted at bottom (otherwise new file with extension (…) is created)

    • Fill all lines for PowerBI: All lines (event and measurement names fields) are also filled.

  1. Save export settins with small button in bottom bar of MinMax export settings window

  2. Create new script and add first action to script


First script action: Executing CAL-File from 2DCalFiles folder (at best use placeholders)

File name:

  1. Add second action to script


Second parameter

Exporting MinMax table Speed to Event directory (<EventDir>) with name MinMax-DemoExport_<MesName>



<EventDir> is also used as default directory and has not be specified additionally in this call!


Every path can be set as export directory here!


When path contains space characters, it suggested to use “<Path>”.

  1. Execute script

  2. Check created file MinMax-DemoExport_SBK_Demo.CSV in Event


MinMax-DemoExport_SBK_Demo.CSV in Event

  1. Created Script can now be executed for every available measurement!
