Cicode Programming Reference > Cicode Function Categories > Display Functions Introduction > DspChart


Displays a chart at an AN. Charts are trend lines with markers on them. Values are plotted on the chart pens. You need to specify Value1, but Value2 to Value8 are optional.

If more values (than the configured pens) are specified, the additional values are ignored. If fewer values (than the configured pens) are specified, the pens that have no values are not displayed.

You should use this function only if you want to control the display of charts directly.
