Measurement Studio User Interface


The CWTicks object controls placement of tick marks on an axis. You configure tick marks by specifying how many divisions you want on the axis independent of the range of the axis or by specifying an interval for placing the ticks.

To make a grid similar to those found on an oscilloscope, set the MajorDivisions property on the X and Y Axes.Tick object to 10. Use the MajorDivisionUnits property to create tick marks and grid lines that scroll with the data on a strip chart. If both MajorDivisions and MajorDivisionUnits are set to nonzero values, the MajorDivisions property takes precedence.

The same rules apply to the minor division properties.
