Waveform graph with initial data! Hpw?

Hello

I am looking at a VI that has a waveform graph with a data curve...

The wiring leads into a sequence statemetn and things happen WITH the
data displayed in the graph.

BUT for the life of me... I cannot figure out HOW the data got into the
waveform graph...

Basically, in the diagram window, I have a wiring that goes from

WAV EFORM ------> extract average

(specifically, in the labview course notes... it is Exercise 4-3 from
Book2)

How did the data get into a waveform graph?

Tom-

The waveform graph must be a control (if you right click on it, it will
give the option "Change to Indicator") with data saved in it. To do this,
once the plot (or array) is full of data, right click on it, go to Data
Operations and select Make Current Value Default. Now if you save the vi,
the data will be saved with the code.

Hope this helps-
Dave
