Elements

Name Description
Name Text displayed in the plot area that is associated with the cursor.
Color The color of the cursor, including its point, arrow, and name.
Style The symbol that, in combination with Point Style, is drawn at the focal point of the cursor. Valid values are 0-8, from top-left to bottom-right, as shown when you right-click a cursor in the cursor legend and select Attribute»Cursor Style from the shortcut menu.
Point Style The symbol that, in combination with Style, is drawn at the focal point of the cursor. Valid values are 0-16, as shown on the shortcut menu of the plot legend from top-left to bottom-right.
Name Visible If TRUE, displays the cursor name in the plot area.
Allow Drag If TRUE, allows you to drag the cursor.
Cursor Mode Specifies the way in which the cursor snaps to the plots in the plot area. Valid values include 0 (Free), 1 (Single-plot), and 2 (Multi-plot).
Plot Plot with which the cursor is associated. If Plot is –1, the cursor snaps to all plots in the plot area. You can move the cursor to the nearest data point along any plot in the plot area.
Index Array index of the point to which the cursor is snapped. This property can have a value between 0 and the number of data points minus 1.
Position Position of cursor in terms of X-Y coordinates.
  • X—The coordinate that defines the position of the cursor along the X-axis.
  • Y—The coordinate that defines the position of the cursor along the Y-axis.
X Scale Sets the X-scale of the cursor. This property is valid only for free cursors. When the cursor is associated with a plot, this property might be overwritten by the plot.
Y Scale Sets the Y-scale of the cursor. This property is valid only for free cursors. When the cursor is associated with a plot, this property might be overwritten by the plot.
Watch Plots Array that contains the indexes of the plots that the cursor is watching when Watch All Plots is set to FALSE. This element is valid only for cursors that are associated with multiple plots.
Watch All Plots If TRUE, the cursor watches all plots in the plot area. If FALSE, the cursor watches only the plots specified by Watch Plots. This element is valid only for cursors that are associated with multiple plots.
Plot Area The plot area with which the cursor is associated. This element applies only to Mixed Signal graphs.
Label Offset The coordinates of the label position relative to the cursor.
  • X—The X coordinate of the label position relative to the cursor.
  • Y—The Y coordinate of the label position relative to the cursor.
