Any Plotly experts out there?
mje posted a topic in User InterfaceAre there any plotly experts out there that have had experience integrating it into LabVIEW which would care to lend an ear? I've dabbled with it for a day or two and am convinced it can provide some solid data visualization options that overcomes a lot of the limitations the native rendering tools in LabVIEW burden us with. As I see it there's two paths to getting plotly data rendered in a LabVIEW application: Use Python to leverage plotly's offline capabilities to render static images and dump them in into a picture control. While this would produce visualization beyond LabVIEW's current capacity with relative ease, I'm skeptical I can get enough data out of plotly for this to work since I'd be expected to provide context sensitive data based on cursor position and clickable data points. Host an HTML context in LabVIEW and dump everything into plotly.js. This would be a significant amount of work to get data in and out of the hosted context but I've done so in the past. I frankly see this as a very ugly option. Has anyone looked into plotly or other alternative rendering libraries? I also looked at the Advanced Plotting Toolkit but it seems to also lack an obvious way to extract context from the resulting images-- I need to translate cursor location to data points. I also can't bang a fast enough render time out of it to be useful. -m
