Re: Interface object positioning

I do appreciate your suggestions but I must admit you guys must have better "mouse control" than I have. I seem to get one column "just right" and then decide to move it to the left "just a little". During the move, I manage to change the size of all of the objects. A grid with a snap feature would ...

Interface object positioning

When using interface panel the position is given with an object. Is there a way to set a grid and have a "snap to grid". I seem to spend a lot of time lining up boxes and making them the same size.

Thanks in advance.

Message logger and message monitor

I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around the difference between message logger and message monitor. At first you would think message monitor shows you the data and message logger saves it to a file, and this is true. However, it seems message monitor can also save the file. If so, what does me...

Re: Jerky time scale

Phil, Sorry this reply took so long .... a dozen other projects. Part of the problem is after suffering from the jerky time scale for two days, I wrote a bit more code, resized the graph, it went away, and I can't reproduce the problem. We used to say "All's well that ends". It doesn't have to end w...

Jerky time scale

Probably simple but I can't find it. During a data acquisition session, the time scale changes resolution. It might say 44:54:00 and then 44:58:000. That extra 0 causes the entire graph to resize. Is there a way to make the time plots work like an oscilloscope? I don't need time stamps, just a time ...

Re: Interface time function

I found something that almost works. I created a button and attached this: !Time [TimeDate.Now]\r\n If I hit that button the correct data goes out and the Arduino gets it. However, I also have a button that sends many (12 commands). I did increase the commands in the declaration. Although the messag...

Re: Interface time function

Phil, I'm so glad you posted this. Yes, I did find it when I was searching. I can't make much sense of it. DateTime.Now Round? Subtract? Number, number?? I realize it returns the number of seconds since 1970. I don't want that. Where can I find a table of these commands? It seems there must be a hug...

Interface time function

I've looked over the documents fairly well and I can find where you can tag each line of data with the date and time and also tag the date and time to the filename. I'm looking for something very simple. I just want to be able to get the date and time from the PC and send it to the Arduino. It's pro...

Newbie XY plotting and general questions

Hello all, I am in the process of evaluating this software to see if it will do what I need. My first impressions are very good but it might be a case where "strummin'" is easy but "pickin' and grinnin'" are a bit more. I'm sorry I can't post my code right now but it's at about 700 lines and I think...
