The DataGraphPoint plug-in enables to control values of a selected point in a Graph object, 2DRibbon object and 2DPatch object.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Plugins -> Container plug-ins -> Data

Information: DataPool plug-ins only work properly on a single channel on the same machine.

DataGraphPoint Properties

  • Use DataPool Container: Replaces the Graph Container parameter with the Container Field parameter when set to On. This enables a dynamic control of different graph objects defined in the Container Field parameter.

  • Container Field: Defines a DataPool variable which contains a container name, replacing the Graph Container parameter placeholder. This parameter is used from external applications sending data to DataPool enabling the application to change the controlled graph object.

  • Graph container: Defines the container to be controlled. Drag the geometry object from the Viz tree to the container area.

    Note: Graph Container and Container Field parameters operate the same as the Use Remote Container parameter. The Use Remote Container parameter has no effect in the plug-in.

  • Graph Point ID: Defines the point to control. ID is the index of the point in the geometry plug-in. ID 1 refers to the first point and so on.

  • Point Offset: Defines an offset of the point index from the first point. The actual point ID is the sum of Graph Point ID and Point offset.

  • Format: Defines the axis or width to be controlled by the plug-in. If one axis is selected (X or Y) or if width is selected (W), then the data should contain one value. If X Y is selected, then two values should be sent. If X Y W are selected, three values should be sent.
