The GraphDisplay allows showing the graphical procession of a value over time that is routed to the Graph Display Output Node.


To create a GraphDisplay widget choose "Widgets > Displays > GraphDisplay". The mouse cursor changes to a crosshairs icon, indicating the create mode. With a left-click anywhere on the empty main background window you add the selected widget to the current page. Left-click again if you like to add one more. To quit the create mode, you can switch to the run mode with [F8], where you can use all widgets. Most widgets however need to be set up first.

To edit the GraphDisplay properties simply right-click it and choose the first menu entry "GraphDisplay Properties". Alternatively, you can press [Alt + P] whilst the mouse is hovering above it or switch to the edit / move mode with [F9] and double-click on it. The GraphDisplay Property dialog opens up.
