Graph-Settings dialog-box


Title and Y-axis Input Selection 


Graph Title

Enter a Graph Title. Here the graph title is Graph. This will show at the top of the Graph plot area.

Y–axis Input

Select the Y-axis Input you want to apply the Graph-Settings.

Y 1 - 4 : Data-Type

Y# : the input-connector, from 1 to 4
Data-Type : one of three Data-Channels  - see Y-axis Options

Set all : to apply the same settings to all plots in the graph.

Top Tip: Use Set all if wires connected to a Graph FB are all Pressure-Angle from different Cam-Data FBs. If the Minimum and Maximum limits are set to be equal for all cams, it is much easier to analyse the cam-data as you edit the model.

Y-Axis &  X-Axis 



These settings apply to one plot or all plots - see Y-axis input, above.

Auto-Scale Y-Axis

Auto-scale the maximum and minimum values to those values at the Y-axis input-connector.
