To visualise data you can use
Step Plot to visualise data with a horizontal line between each data point. The Step Plot
is great with specific data where you want a stepwise visualisation. This could be for example levels over time or levels between frequencies.
The input is
MxN and is a dataset.
Name specifies the name of the block.
Units is no longer used and will be removed from the properties soon.
Graph are high level settings for the entire plot. The specific properties are:
Auto scale if enabled will auto scale the plot each time new data is inputted. This is very smart if you do not know your limits.
If plotting speed is desired turn auto scale off.
Edit mode turns on or off the toolbar in the plot on the dashboard. If you want too zoom in and out, and work with data then enable the edit mode.
X axis is customisation to the x axis settings. This includes maximum, minimum limits, ticks and much more. The specific properties are:
|Tick label rotation||0|
Scale is the type of scaling the axis should have. This can either be
Maximum is the maximum limit of the axis IF auto scale is turned off.
Minimum is the minimum limit of the axis IF auto scale is turned off.
Tick labels is what ticks should be shown on the axis.
Default shows standard ticks while
As X data shows every x data point.
Tick label rotation is the rotation of the tick labels.
Minor ticks can be enabled and disabled.
Y axis is customisation to the y axis settings. The settings are identical to X axis if you want to read more.
Grid is customisation to the grid in the plot. This includes colors, width and much more. The specific properties are:
