Can i replace a Plot data with an image in an XY Graph?

I want to build a VI where the plot data or the points in an XY Graph is replaced by an Image. Is this possible?

Hi Pranesh,

Yes.

Graphs support to embed upto 3 images, for front, middle and background…

 

For reference you might look for the "Plot images property" example VI in the example finder!

Thanks a lot. Now I'm able to insert an image into the plot. But how do I control the position of the image? Lets say I want an image at an X and Y axis point, How do I do that?

Hi Pranesh,

 

the image is embedded at the upper left corner of the graph plot area (from my mind, please test again).

To move the image to a different position you need to create a larger image and place your "sub"-image at the right pixel coordinates…

Hi Pranesh. Did you find a way to put an image in a specific point in the graph?
