I should have been a slight more descriptive.
1) using LV 8.20
2) it does work, can't get it to un-work, i.e. changing ini value to false works, changing back to true doesn't undo the first false
3) restarted and rebooted a hundred times since I first tried this in late Winter
Interestingly, with frustration, if you drop a new chart/graph onto the same vi it also is rendered unable to take right clicks during runtime.... it's as if the whole project has inherited this behaviour and cannot undo it once set.
On the subject of EnableAutoScales=False in an *.ini file it does seem to work as indicated, preventing scale resizing.How about EnableAutoScales=True?I cannot re-enable autoscaling in my vi with this ini statement. In fact, if I drop a new chart/graph onto the vi it also will not respond to right mouse clicks to autoscale.So my question is, having once used the ini file statement EnableAutoScales=False, how can I switch back to the default case? Using EnableAutoScales=True does not seem to work.
This key used to be the only way to influence the behaviour of graphs when graph scales did resize back in version 6.1 or so. When multiscales got added this was also fixed by having the Auto Scale of a graph being an individual setting of each graph. I thought this key did nothing in newer LabVIEW versions but apparently it is used for the selection of the default mode when a graph is created. Nothing prevents you to go into a graph and disable or enable it on an per graph base in the pop-up menu.
