Legend for a 3D Surface Plot

Highlighted
How can I create a legend for a 3D surface plot? I'm doing a xy-projection and the view direction is directly towards this plane. The plot style is a surface contour plot. I want to display next to the plot the legend in a separate bar where the different colours with each value are displayed. The value for each contour line shall be displayed in the legend.

Hi Patrick,

Could you take a close look at what I posted in this thread.

The example FP looks like this

 

I think that can get you started. Post follow-up question as required.

Hi Ben,

thanks for your help, but I was looking for something which is more simple.
I attached an example.

With Ben, we answered a similar question a while ago. Have a look at this thread.

Maybe I should show, how my front panel and the block diagram look like.

Since the vi seems to be somehow corrupted, here is an "updated" version. I hope this is what you are looking for.

OK,

I remember that thread now. That was the one were you did not want to use interpolate colors and I did. Well I still  like to interpolate colors but that presents another challenge when trying to produce a proper color ramp. Without resorting to using the picture control

I decided to play with some of the built in objects.

All of the round objects like knobs and guages include a color ramp. This gave me a ramp but is not quite up to what you get with an intensity graph.

Since I could not get a ramp on any of the straight indicators like sliders etc, I hid most of an intensity graph and just use the Z-scale. It turns out that the same data structure can be used in the intesity graph as the guage.

Can anyone think of other ays of producing a proper color scale when intepolation is turned on?

Thanks for your help.

The color scale looks very good. Can you please save it as a Labview 7.1 file.
