Issue Details

  • I am displaying data in a waveform chart but I don't see as much data points as I need.¬†
  • I am seeing way too more data points than necessary on my waveform chart. I want to keep a record of less points.
  • My data is being 'squished' on one side of the chart and I would like to appreciate it in better detail.
How can I change the setting of the chart to display a specific amount of data points?


You can change the amount of data points being displayed in the chart by right clicking the chart in the Front Panel and clicking Chart History Length. You can then define the exact amount of data points you want the chart history buffer to keep record of.
