Have a look at this VI.
I pause the chart by simply placing it inside a case structure.once paused, you can rescale axis, select a portion of chart and zoom it etc.
Hope this helps
Thanks for this, but unfortunately it doesn't quite do what I need. I don't want to lose any data while the chart is paused, and this VI does (random numbers generated while the chart is paused are lost).
I hope you don't mind me chipping in here. I have an alternative method that uses two charts and property nodes. One chart is used to store all the data and the other to show the data after a pause. You don't need the shift register here just use the history data collected on the chart.
Have a look and see what you think.
