Best way of including timing in a waveform graph?
I've been toying with a number of different ways to do this, but so far I haven't had all that much luck. I've posted a picture so you can see what's going on. All I have is 4 plots that need to be plotted with accurate timing information on the x-axis. I guess I'm just wondering what the best way to go about this is. This method seems to be the most cluttered and messy that I've done, but is the only one I've gotten to have the actual correct timing info on the graph. I would put a wait in the loop, but I need to acquire this data as fast as possible. Thanks for any help!

The display options you have chosen are OK on their own.
If you're looking to get more speed out of the code, try only graphing the data every 10 iterations or so. You can save the processed data (your waveforms) in a shift register where they can then be appended every 10 iterations.
This will obviously not clean up your code. The best way to clean up your code might be to simply throw the conversions you're performing into a sub-vi. Or create a time input for your "meters" VI and have thr processing done there with correctly-scaled values being outputted.
Hope this helps
