The Live Data Options For This Block 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: While the Watch Window and Live Loop Annotation functions share the Live Data Options For This Block dialog, different options are available for each function.
Use the Live Data Options For This Block dialog to:
Live output data for any block can be displayed in Live Loop Annotations or in the Watch Window.
You may also view the status of the module by clicking Module Status in the Live Data Options For This Block dialog. Live module status for any module can be displayed in either Live Loop Annotations or in the Watch Window.
By doing so, the following annotation will be created:
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 Live Data Options For This Block dialog box.
Live data is always displayed on the live loop annotation. Prior to 11.1, the option to show live specs instead was displayed. This has been moved for live specs to display directly on top of the static specs. See Enabling fetching and display of live spec values for more information.
The watch window always shows live data.
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.
