displaying text inside a graph

Hello all,

Is there any -easy- way to display relevant text close to lines in a
multiple line XY graph (for instance which file the line originates
from).
I suppose I could write such a program myself, but i can imagine
Labview might have a standard option for this purpose...... haven't
found it yet however.

Thanks!

Erwin.

Erwin,

what about a different aproach: use cursors in the graph and name
them! It's not on the graph but a standard solution.

You're right, that's probably the easiest way. Haven't thought of
using the cursors for that particular application.

Thanks!

Erwin.

If you want the text actually on the graph, then start with the
cursors, then format the cursors to show their text on the graph.
You can then hide as much of the cursor as you like, even down to
just text.
