Wire dynamic data or waveform data to a graph to automatically format the plot legend and x-scale time stamp for the graph. For example, if you configure the Simulate Signal Express VI to generate a sine wave and to use absolute time and wire the output of the Simulate Signal Express VI to a waveform graph, the plot legend of the graph automatically updates the plot label to Sine, and the x-scale displays the time and date when you run the VI.

To ignore the plot legend label the dynamic or waveform data includes, right-click the graph and select Ignore Attributes from the shortcut menu. Selecting Ignore Attributes allows you to change the plot legend label programmatically.

To ignore the time stamp configuration the dynamic or waveform data includes, right-click the graph and select Ignore Time Stamp from the shortcut menu.

Note  If the data you display in the graph contains a time stamp formatted for absolute time, select Ignore Time Stamp to ignore the time stamp.
