Owning Palette: Picture Plots VIs
Requires: Base Development System
Takes a picture and polar data and appends a picture that represents a polar graph of the data. This VI can represent polar data as points or lines between points.
|[user-specified font] specifies the specific font characteristics for the text to draw. The VI ignores this input unless desired font is User-specified Font.
|desired font specifies the text font.
|picture is the picture to which you want to add the scale. The default is an empty picture.|
|data array is an array of points, where each point is a cluster containing a magnitude and a phase in degrees that specifies the format and precision for the scale.
|top left point specifies in coordinates where to place the top-left corner of the image in the new picture.
|dimensions specifies the top left point of the drawn bitmap.
|polar attributes describes the format for the grid and scale of the polar plot and indicates how the graph should handle negative magnitude data, whether to clip the data or to draw it.
|Lines/Points sets whether the VI represents the polar data as points or lines between points.
|Size specifies the size, in pixels, of the lines or points this VI plots.|
|new picture is the picture that contains the plot. You can wire this output to any other picture input to add more drawing instructions to the picture. You also can wire this output to the Picture to Pixmap VI to obtain an image data cluster. You then can save the image data to a file using the Graphics Formats VIs.|
Refer to the Simple Polar Plot VI in the labview\examples\Graphics and Sound\Picture Plots directory for an example of using the Polar Plot with Point Options VI.
