Oscilloscope.Create method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



Creates an instance of the Oscilloscope class: once created, the Oscilloscope will stay active until the termination of the container application: being a graphical object, the Oscilloscope needs to be associated to an existing window that will be used as a surface for the graphic rendering: this window can be changed at a later time through the Oscilloscope.SetHwnd method. For development environments like WPF, where controls don't expose a HWND, the usage of the Oscilloscope.CreateNew method should be preferred.


Once created, by default the Oscilloscope is still not visible: you must make a call to the Oscilloscope.Show method in order to display it.


For further details about using the embedded Oscilloscope refer to the Oscilloscope class section.
