Plot numeric, complex, X/Y, or point sample data contained in arrays and analog waveforms.
The waveform data type carries the start time (t0), delta t (dt), and y-values (Y) of a waveform. When you wire waveform data to a graph, the graph automatically plots a waveform based on the start time, delta t, and y-values of the waveform.
For data contained in arrays, the graph displays a general-purpose Cartesian graph that plots any set of points, evenly sampled or not.
The following table describes how graphs plot different types of array data.
|Data Type||Plot Behavior|
|1D array of numeric values||
The array is a single plot.
|1D array of complex or cluster values||
The array is a single plot. The cluster must be a two-element cluster.
|Cluster of two 1D arrays of numeric values||
The cluster is a single plot.
|1D array of waveforms||Each waveform is a separate plot.|
|2D array of numeric values||Each row of the array is a separate plot.|
|2D array of complex or cluster values||Each row of the array is a separate plot. The cluster must be a two-element cluster.
|1D array of clusters of 1D arrays||Each cluster of arrays is a separate plot. Arrays within a cluster must be the same size, but arrays in different clusters can be different sizes.|
|Cluster of two numeric values and a 1D array||The cluster is a single plot.
