Modelsim, how to remove testbench source tab

Quartus version 20.1.1, Modelsim free version

 

Whenever Modelsim launches from Quartus, the waveform view is covered up by a tab that contains the testbench source code. 

Is there some way, either through a Modelsim setting or by modifying the .do file, to eliminate the testbench source tab?

 

Cheers.

Are you running a script (.do) or just running the sim manually?  This will always happen when you hit a $stop in the code.  If you run the sim manually, you can choose how much time to run without hitting the stop.

And you can just click on the wave tab to flip to it.

Hello sstrell, thanks for getting back with me.  This is what Modelsim looks like once it opens, and runs the simulation.  The testbench is open in a tab which covers the waveform view.  I cannot find a way to have Modelsim open without this happening.

Thanks, Randy

So it is the $stop, interesting.  Modelsim is launched by Quartus, using the .do file Quartus creates.  My testbenches always have a $stop for convenience.

I find having to always close the tab frustrating, but it isn't that big a deal.

Thanks, Randy
