xy graph active plot property settings not working

Solved!

I set the xy graph plot properties manually and they appear to work. However, when I try to set them in the program they revert to the manual settings. What's going on?

The code you posted should set the properties correctly. Some options:

 

  1. You're working on another control than the one you think.
  2. You're resetting the controls somewhere.
  3. You're doing it in a reentrant VI and you're only changing one of the clones.
  4. You're changing it and then unloading the VI without saving.

 

Basically, without seeing the actual code, I don't see a way to tell for sure.

I went to the graph and made plot legend visible and extended it from one plot to 3. That's all I did. Now it appears to be working properly. It's been a long while since I had to get really fancy with a graph but I don't remember having to do this. My memories of  graph properties were that they were a little more dynamic. Smiley Surprised
