Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Sets a buddy text of a graphic item over the waveform's graphics. The current buddy text can be obtained through the GraphicItemBuddyTextGet method.

Settings of the buddy text can be obtained and modified through the GraphicItemBuddyTextParamsGet and GraphicItemBuddyTextParamsSet methods.

 

On the screenshot below you can see a set of vertical lines displayed over the waveform, each with its buddy text aligned on the top right of the vertical line:

 

 

An existing buddy text can be removed at a later time by calling this method again and by specifying an empty text string.

 

For details about graphic items management on the waveform analyzer refer to the How to add graphic items to the Waveform analyzer section.
