Issue Details

I am using a strip chart that is displaying X points but I just want it to display Y points. How can I change the X Scale?


 To change the number of points displayed in the X scale of a strip chart the following steps are required:
  1. Go into the front panel
  2. Right click on the Waveform Chart
  3. Click on Properties >> Scales 
  4. Check that Autoscale checkbox isn't checked on the Scales tab
  1. Change the Maximum and Minimum value to the desired value on the Scales tab

Additional Information

Strip Chart: This mode has a scrolling display that is similar to a paper tape strip chart recorder.  This mode first plots values from left to right. From here, it continues to plot new points at the rightmost point and shifts old values to the left.
