Display Only One Plot at a Time on a Waveform Chart

Updated Jun 2, 2023



  • LabVIEW

I have multiple variables that I want displayed on a Waveform Chart. I do not want to create a chart for each variable and I would rather not display all plots on the same Waveform Chart at the same time. Is there any way I can switch between plots on the same display?

To change the visible plots in a Waveform Chart:
  1. Right-click on the Waveform Chart and select Create » Property Node » Active Plot.
  2. Right-click on the Active Plot property and select Change to Write. Wire a constant or a control to this property to select which plot to make active.
  3. Right-click on the Property Node and select Add Element.
  4. Left-click on the new property and select Plot » VisiblePlot is towards the bottom under Active plot. Wire a Boolean constant or a control to this property to select whether the plot should be visible/invisible.
