Graph FB > Settings dialog-box

Icon-ApplicationSettings-Graph

The Graph Settings icon is at the top of the Graph FB dialog-box.

Click the Graph Settings icon to open the Graph Settings dialog-box.

The settings are:

Graph Title
Color of the graph line
Minimum and maximum scales for the Y-axis of each input
Minimum and maximum scale for the X-axis

Graph-Settings dialog-box

Dialog-GraphSettings

Title and Y-axis Input Selection 

Dialog-GraphSettings-Title

Graph Title

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

Y–axis Input

Use the drop-down list box to select to which Y-axis input you want to apply these 'Graph Settings'

ŸY# : Data-Type

Y#: The number of the input-connector to which a wire has been connected

Data-Type: which Data-Channel is selected in the Y-axis Options

Set all : the Graph Settings are applied to all graphs.

Top Tip: Use Set all to scale all graphs of the same Data-Channel to the same Y-axis scale.

For example, if the wires connected to a Graph FB are all Pressure-Angle but from different Cam-Data FBs, then if the Minimum and Maximum values are set to be equal, then it is much easier to analyse the data.

Y-Axis &  X-Axis 

Dialog-GraphSettings-Y-Xaxis

[These Settings apply to the Y–axis Input, or all of the Y–axis inputs - see above]

Y-axis

Auto-Scale Y-Axis

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

Note: If the Y-axis Input : is 'Set-all', then the maximum and minimum values apply to all of the graph-plots.

Y maximum / Y minimum

'Clear 'the 'Auto-Scale Y–axis' box.

Enter values in the 'Y maximum:' and 'Y minimum:' boxes

Graph Line colour

If you prefer a different colour for the graph.

Click the 'Graph Line colour' button
Use the the Windows® pop-up colour picker, click OK in the pop-up.

X–axis

Auto-Scale Y-Axis

Enter the maximum and minimum values for the X-axis.

The X-axis values apply to all the graphs.
