You can use the user settings tab to choose the various operational states of the UVM. The tab states are permanent, non-permanent, and status.
The permanent state can be set or not set in the UVM. The state settings are stored in EEPROM. The settings retain their state across power losses.
The non-permanent states can be set from the tool but reset to not chosen when the power to UVM is cycled. They are typically used for overrides and tests.
The status states are advisory states and are used for debugging.
