controlling cluster size in multiplot chart

Hello,

I have a chart that periodically plots a new array of data points.
The array is passed through an "array to cluster" function before
being sent to the chart.

Problem is that the size of my array can change, but the "array to cluster"
function has a default cluster size that cannot be changed programmatically.
This means that, if initially my array size is only 7, that everything works
OK,
but if the array size decreases to 4, the cluster size remains at 7 and the
chart
plots redundent zero values that are not real data. Also, if the array size
is ever
greater than 9, the "array to cluster" truncates the data to 9 elements. The
"array
to cluster" function seems to remember the maximum size of the array,
fills
unused elements with zeros, and truncates elements beyond its "default
size".

Is there any way to resize the cluster so that the chart plots only the
points
I supply, without redundent zeros or truncations?

Thanks for your help.

Brett Patterson

Hello

Wire a 2D array to the chart terminal:
colums: number of graphs
lines:number of points to add to each graph

But when you change the number of colums from one write to the next, the
graph is reset. Read, resize and rewrite chart attribute node "History data"
if you want to dynamically change the number of graph while keeping entire
history.

Alternatively, you can also fix your cluster to a maximum fixed size and
filled unused entries with NaN.
NaN is "Not a number". NaN entries are not plotted in graphs. You obtain a
NaN typing "NaN" in a float constant or control.
