Requires: Base Development System
Use this page of the Properties dialog box to format scales and grids on a graph or chart, such as a waveform chart, XY graph, or feather plot.
This page includes the following components:
|Note Some of the components in this list do not apply to all objects.|
- Axes—Sets the scale you want to configure. If you select multiple graphs or charts, the Axes control lists the types of scales the graphs or charts share. Select a type from the list to configure all scales of that type for the graphs or charts you select. You also can use the Active X Scale and Active Y Scale properties to set the scale to configure programmatically.
- Name—Name of the scale.
- Show scale label—Displays the scale label on the graph or chart.
- Show scale—Displays the scale on the graph or chart.
- Log—Maps the scale logarithmically. Remove the checkmark from this checkbox to map the scale linearly.
- Inverted—Reverses the positions of the minimum and maximum values on the scale.
- Expand digital buses—Displays digital waveform data as individual data lines. Remove the checkmark from this checkbox to display the data as a bus. This checkbox is available only for the y-scale of digital waveform graphs.
- Autoscale—Automatically adjusts the scale to reflect the data you wire to the graph or chart. You also can use the Scale Fit property to configure autoscaling programmatically.
|Note LabVIEW does not include hidden plots when you autoscale the axes of a graph or chart. If you want to include the hidden plots when you autoscale, make the hidden plots transparent instead. Right-click the plot legend and select Color from the shortcut menu to change the color of the plots.|
- Minimum—Minimum value of the scale.
- Maximum—Maximum value of the scale.
- Scaling Factors—Use these values to specify the value of a scale marker and to display the marker in a convenient manner. For example, if you want the scale to display in milliseconds starting at a reference time, set Offset to the reference time and Multiplier to 0.001. If you change Offset, the scale no longer uses 0 as the origin of the plot. You also can use the Offset and Multiplier property to set the offset and multiplier programmatically.
- Offset—Value of the origin of the plot.
- Multiplier—Interval for scaling data.
- Scale Style and Colors—Style and colors of the marks on the scale.
- Scale Style—Style of the marks on the scale.
- Major tick—Color of the tick mark.
- Minor tick—Color of the minor tick mark.
- Marker text—Color of the scale marker text.
- Grid Style and Colors—Style and colors of the grid.
- Grid Style—Style of the grid. This option is not available for z-scales. You also can use the Grid Colors property to change the grid color programmatically.
- Major grid—Color of the major grid on the scale.
- Minor grid—Color of the minor grid on the scale.
- Ignore waveform time stamp on x-axes—LabVIEW sets the beginning of the x-scale to 0 instead of the value specified by t0. Remove the checkmark from this checkbox to include the time stamp information from the dynamic or waveform data in the x-scale. This checkbox is available only for graphs with dynamic or waveform data.
