Hi,

it would be helpful to have the following option in the View:

In case of moving the cursor through the 2D-Graph, I would like to have the table scrolling automatically the same way with highlightning the values of the cursors position. 

 

Kind regards

Bernhard

Hello ALL,

 

there is only one manual scale to be set in a 2D graph in VIEW Panel. It would be a great idea if setting manual scales would allow you to set seperate scales for seperate plots on one graph.

Thanks, Piotr

Is it possible to expand NI Diadem View to an option that allows hiding of curves without changing the properties of the graph or curve.

 

See example in the attachments.

 

Thanks a lot

Bernhard

Because it's so much easier to write scripts for (like VIEW)!

Lately there has been a need by many individuals to shift data for one reason or another.  Possibly the data was collected without using a trigger to synch everything or just collected with an inevitable delay.

 

Would R&D look into a function that could mark two points in a customer's data and then align/shift the data so a comparison may be done of one data set against another?

 

Thanks!

The idea is to provide a "Channel concatenation" button in the default Analysis panel > Channel Functions.

After clicking this button, a dialog box should open, where the various Channels of different Channel Groups can be selected for the concatenation process. In the same dialog box, some options for the channel concatenation could be selected as well.

In this moment, some example scripts can be found in the discussion board for the concatenation of N Channels in M Groups. However, these scripts are quite cumbersome, not easy to customize, and providing too many optional features that are aiming to address shortcomings in the time or data channels to be concatenated.
It is a good practice, however, to correct first the issues in your Time and Data channels that prevent them of being concatenated properly.

The channel concatenation function would be a very useful feature, especially for engineers working with big datasets, that are increasingly recorded in contemporary data acquisition.
Typical examples of big datasets are vehicle CAN network data, recorded over an extended period of time (weeks, months).
Usually, these data are divided into multiple data files, which then need to be concatenated afterwards in order to cover a selected recording period, prior to further analysis of the data.

 

I'd like to have a 64-bit version of DIAdem primarily so the program can utilize more than 2GB of RAM.

 

I'd expect that this would improve performance and stability for those using a 64-bit OS (eg win 7 64 bit) and working with large data sets.

 

 

Currently the data type of group properties is automatically set, when two colums are used, one for "Name" and one for "Value". (see picture, right side)

I recommend to enable the possibility to manually set the data type for every individual entry, regardless which column is chosen for Name and/or Value.Bild1.png

Hi,

 

I noticed channels can be dragged and drop everywhere but in the calculator. Ths channel list is quite OK when havin a few channel in the Data portal but becomes fast ´a waste of time on bigger projects. Allowing to drag channel in ot would make it faster to use and also a bit more user friendly.

Hello,

 

because of DIAdem is not able to synchronise captured video files and MDF-data files measured with

 

Vector Canape with all the skills of and in DIAdem-VIEW,

 

how about even capturing a video additional to the other measured data with DIAdem-DAC ??

 

 

Vector Canape can this do with a simple webcam ( a better model from Logitech suffice ) and it really works fine,

 

but DIAdem is much better for the rest of all measuring tasks and so our favourite.

 

 

And yes : DIAdem  can  data acquisition and we like it  !!!  Smiley Happy

 

Hello, 
Here are the product suggestions I have for DIAdem, after going through the pain of creating a single report page:
1. Option to set the background color of a header in a table (not the entire table)
2. Option to prevent the column lines from going through the header section of the table
3. Group objects together in Diadem, (like PowerPoint ?)
4. Make DIAdem font size correspond to MS Office 's font size
5. Option to make individual Column/Row lines bold and set background color for each individual column/row
Thanks,

An existing DIAdem and DAC user want to measure Sound & Vibration signals. Basic S&V Functions like dB ABC weighting, sound level,... (existing functions in the S&V Meas.Suite) would be nice to have in DIAdem as well.

Current Workaround:

Use S&V Assistant for this application.

Include everything in DIAdem would increase efficency.

Thanks

Diadem currently has a copy function for curves within the user interface, as shown below: 

 

 

true.png

 

However, there is no copy function within the scripting api. This means to duplicate a curve programmatically multiple functions. one for each of the properties in the curve, need to be called as shown below: 

 

Dim oMyReportObj, oMyNew2DCurve,

Set oMyReportObj = Report.ActiveSheet.Objects.Item(1)

Set oMyNew2DCurve = oMyReportObj.Curves2D.Add(e2DShapeLine, oMyReportObj.Curves2D.Item(oMyReportObj.Curves2D.Count).Name &"_copy")
oMyNew2DCurve.Shape.XChannel.Reference = oMyReportObj.Curves2D.Item(oMyReportObj.Curves2D.Count-1).Shape.XChannel.Reference
oMyNew2DCurve.Shape.YChannel.Reference = oMyReportObj.Curves2D.Item(oMyReportObj.Curves2D.Count-1).Shape.YChannel.Reference
oMyNew2DCurve.Shape.Settings.Line.Width = eLineWidth0100

...

 

It would be far easier if there were a call to copy a curve directly: 

 

Dim oMyReportObj, oMyNew2DCurve,

Set oMyReportObj = Report.ActiveSheet.Objects.Item(1)

Set oMyNew2DCurve = oMyReportObj.Curves2D.Copy(1)

 

 

 

The DIAdem prefix for hex data is $ and as I am aware you must use this.  Most programs use the prefix 0x.  There should be an option to chose one, the other or none.

Having network directories available in the DataFinder is a great tool. However, if a network directory is added as a default search locations AND the network cable is unplugged, DIAdem will hang for a very long period of time. Windows commands are used to query for network locations. If not connected to the network, the timeout for these commands is quite large. 

 

While this is technically expected behavior, it is not ideal software functionality to hang if a network cable is unplugged.

In Report it's possible to create a 3D matrix plot with only an Y-axis and the X-axis embedded in the waveform channels.

If you export this to VIEW this won't work since VIEW needs an explicit X and Y channel.

It's very easy and useful to append a layout in REPORT (File...Append Layout), so it's confusing and disappointing that this isn't available in VIEW.

When a large number of curves are displayed on a Report graph, it can be difficult to distinguish between the curves (even with different colors and shapes).  We had a user request the ability to hover over a curve and see the Y-Channel associated with that curve.  I think this would also be a neat idea for View (which already has some "hover" capabilities).  Multiple overlaid curves could either all be displayed (with color indicators?), or only display the top curve (since it's the visible one).

Hi,

I would like to request th ability to "Freeze" columns in a view table so they stay on the left-hand side of the table as you scroll to the right.

The channel names/properties sticking at the top works brilliantly, but if you want to have a timestamp channel (or Timestamp, Speed, and Torque channels) visible when you have a view table with many channels you have 3 options:

  1) Scroll back and forth a lot

  2) Add a new occurrance of the channel(s) into the table and move it(them) to the correct spot

  3) Have 2 tables side-by-side and vertically scroll them both together manually

 

I would suggest 2 interfaces to select the columns to freeze at the left hand side of the table:

  1) Right-Click menu called something like "Lock Column(s) at Left" or "Freeze Column(s) to Left" (Or just "Lock/Freeze Column(s)")

  2) On the "Display" interface, have a "Lock/Freeze Left" checkbox on the columns in the Name/Format table (you may also want to have a "Lock to Left First # Channels" checkbox for the All/All of a group channel table options)  This should probably automatically move the columns selected to the top of the list so they appear in the order they will display in the table, as well as allowing the user to rearrange the leftmost columns (if they lock/freeze multiple columns)

If you have several graphs and want to change e.g. the axis-scaling it has to be done for each graph separately. An automatic function would be nice.

 

Possible solution:

1. mark all graphs to be changed

2. double-click the axis

3. the next menu shows only the properties, which are in all marked graphs the same.

4. Changing one property will change it for all marked graphs.
