Vivado Simulator - State machine decoding / enumerating in waveform viewer

Description

Is it possible to get the Vivado Simulator (and Vivado debugger) to enumerate state machines?

I wish to see the actual state names as they were originally enumerated in the HDL code.

For example: start, wait , stop etc.

 

Solution

To do this, click on Top_tb (or whatever the testbenches name is) to show the unit under test (uut) which will show the signals within the module.
 
These can then be dragged into the waveform screen and you can see the state names when you zoom in.
