Re: Having problems clearing Design time "random" values when starting real timechart

hi, you can try looping through the x and y values, setting them to

CHART_HIDDEN . This will make the values off the chart,

and therefore not show up. This method, however, will leave 1 series


Alternatively, you can remove the first, (and only upon startup)series,


performing an OpenDataEx-CloseData sequence specifying one less series, in

this case, 0.

hope that helps!


ps. what did you mean by the chart "compressing" itself?
