NXG Waveform Graph Time Stamp to absolute time

Go to solution

Don't know if i am not clicking the correct buttons or so but i don't seem to find a property to put the time stamp on the X axis on NXG. just for the sake of confirming that i am not doing anything wrong I tested it on  2017 and works.. on LV2017 I had to uncheck IGNORE TIMESTAMP... seems that the option is not available on NXG.

Hi buton,

I tried recreating your NXG code, but I'm seeing the correct timestamp behavior. Can you share the *.gvi in question? I've attached the one which worked for me without issue. 


Additionally, are you in NXG 1.0 or 2.0?

Hi buton,

It looks like the issue is that your graph doesn't have the "Use waveform start time" option enabled, which can be accessed in the graph properties. You can either select the entire graph and use the Item properties in the right, or right-click on the graph and choose "Properties." Then you should see the following option if you scroll through the properties:graphOptions.png



Make sure you get the properties window for the graph and not just one of the scales.
