    • [SOLVED] Possibilities to refresh a graph in background

      Hello everybody,

      I have following problem:

      I want to visualize ADC-Values as a Graph.
      Every x ms a new value from the ADC is sampled and visualized.
      The shown data is correct ---> So everything works fine.

      But if I switch to another dialog and come back to the "graph screen" the values are gone. I think the whole dialog is newly created. But how can I manage that?
      Logging data in the background and draw graph if the screen is created? Is there any possibility not to kill that dialog while another dialog is shown? (I tried to create all dialogs/windows once and call them by GUI_ExecCreatedDialog() but that does not work)
      What do you think?

      Image0 ---> after switching back
      Image1 ---> while being on the screen

      Example how the dialog is called:

    • Hi,

      to keep the graph data, the dialog that contains the graph handles should not be deleted.

      You could hide the graph dialog when switching to another window and show the graph dialog again when opening it.

      So instead of deleting the windows and creating them again, you could use the routines WM_HideWindow() and WM_ShowWindow().

      Best regards,

      Florian
