The Block Live Data Options dialog appears when you create a new live loop annotation, add a point to the Watch Window from within the Watch Window, or choose to edit an existing live loop annotation or Watch Window point. Use it to specify which block you want your live loop annotation or Watch Window to monitor, and to set options for how that block's live data should be displayed.

Note: If you do not enter a description here, Hyperview will try to generate one. The automatically generated description will never overwrite a description that you have entered. To get an automatically generated description after you have entered a description, delete the description that you entered and then close and reopen the Block Live Data Options dialog box.
The watch window always shows live data.
You cannot choose to show live specs in the watch window.
Check Reverse Y-Axis to vertically reverse the plot display for the selected block.
Click the Change button next to the color swatch to specify a color for the plot line.
Click the Change button next to the schedule summary. Use the Watch Window Autopause Schedule dialog to change the schedule.
Note that if the block is used in multiple places in the Watch Window, and is paused in some places but not others, all instances of the block will continue to update. This is because all the data collected for a single block is consolidated, and is available to all instances of the block even if they are paused.
Enter the maximum and minimum values you want, respectively, in the text boxes to the right of the Specify Range button.
