Great tip!!!!  I had a alphanumeric display to show the value.  But the
display didn't show the value as an array.  You're right, the value is in an
array 1D format.  How do I convert this to a scalar format?

Thanks,
Ron

Works fine here.

Sounds like you're sending it an array.  Hold down Shift and then click the
mouse on the wire going into the Meter object.  You will get a box that
will tell you if you're sending it a scalar or an array.

I created a simple program to test this and it works fine.  Are you
synchronized between the two inputs?  Obviously if one input keeps advancing
while the other does not one trace will advance and the other will disappear
momentarily.

A small example program might be in order.

VEE 3.2 has been shipping for a year and is supported on Win95.  We do not
guarantee proper operation of VEE 3.12 on Win95.
