A key is displayed at the bottom left of the window showing each represented Sensor's name and graph plot colour. See Figure 1078 above.

Graph Window Functionality

The following Graph Functionality, related to the graphical display of Sensor/Transmitter data, is available from the Graph window:

Start Date and Interval

Overlay Sensors

Range/Level Alarms

Reset

Step Backwards and Forwards

Scale

Display Mode

Export Data

Export Graph

Print Graph

Summary

Bar Graph

Line Graph

Start of Data

End of Data

Note: Whilst much of the Graph Functionality is common to both graph types, please be aware that the exact functionality available depends on the selected graph type, the interval selected and the type of Sensor.
