Full UTC Time in X Axis

Highlighted

Hello,

 

I'm plotting some data over a date/time chanel in the UTC time format. When I zoom into a certain part, hours or minutes disapear. What I need is, that Hours, Minutes and Seconds are always showing in the x-axis.

 

It would be nice if that would be possible for both view and report, but as far as is know formating the axis in view is not possible.

 

How can I archieve the desired behaviour atleast in Report?

 

Thanks

Michael

Hi,

 

can you please post a complete example (Report file, sample TDM data, screenshots documenting the described behaviour). Otherwise it will be hard that people will be able to help you.

Hey,

 

Absolutely:

 

The x-axis is a date/time channel in the format #dd/mm/yyyy hh:nn:ss:ffff. This is how the x-axis is displayed in Diadem:

I would like that the hours would be displayed aswell, like you can see here (edited with paint Smiley Wink):

This would be espacially important in the view, because we will have recordings over several hours but in most cases only timeframes of some minutes will be investigated in detail. During the tests there will be timestamps made for events that occur, to find these timeframes. Therefore it is important to know the complete time, to make sure we are in the right spot.

 

I think in report it would be enough to have the whole time displayed once at the beginning, maybe in a textfield that displays the first time on the x axis, if that can be done.

 

Best regards,

Michael

Hi!

 

you know you can save and attach a REPORT Layout (*.TDR extension), also your TDM file misses the TDX file which basically stores the binary information.

Have you tried this setting?

Hi.

 

Ehm yeah, that works as I wanted it to.

I just looked in the wrong spot unfortunately. Thanks.

 

Is it somehow possible to format the x-axis in the view? Or is it always done automatically?

 

Best regards,

Michael

 

P.s.  I tried to uplad the .tdx file, but the forum didn't allow me to do that Smiley Wink On the .tdr I just missed out.

Hi M1chael5,

 

The formatting of the X axis in VIEW is not configurable in DIAdem 2017 and previous versions, sorry!
