Below is an image of the Graphing page, as you will see it in your web-browser. There are six key components on this page that make up the functionality of Graphing - please take the time to familiarize yourself with these features and terms. Exact verbiage will be used to reference such features throughout the Guide.
1. Main Toolbar
- Contains links to navigate throughout the entire FlowWorks application. This is a global toolbar that is always available at the top of the user interface regardless of the page you are working in at the moment.
2. Site Explorer
- A reference list of all Sites and associated channels available to you. This panel is organized in a 'tree' format, with Sites being the 'trunks' and channels being the 'branches'. Channels are selected for graphing and act as dependant, y-axis variables, always against time (x-axis). To choose channels for graphing, you can either select a Site to automatically include all of its respective channels; or manually 'check-off' channels one-by-one. You can include channels from various Sites for one graph.
3. Graphing Toolbar
- Contains all functions available for graphing. This is a local toolbar that is only visible when the Graphing page is open.
4. Graph Window
- Selected channels will display in a graphical format within this region of the Graphing page. In this example, two channels have been selected and (by default) they display separately, however parallel to one another.
5. Zoom Window
- A scale representation of the above graph that is used to increase/decrease view parameters. Use the sliders on the left and right to narrow/broaden the view window.
6. Data Viewer
- A reference list of all data points on the graph. Click on any point of a graph and the Data Viewer will automatically 'scroll' to that point in the list, for easy reference of exact figures related to that point. This section also includes summarizing statistics for all points on the graph, including Minimum, Average, Maximum and Total.
