Why do not you include all the X-Y plot into a function (with "show panel on
execute" property activated). Thus, the X-Y plot can be used a lot of times
from different parts of the VEE design.
The only disadventage is that if you use a function, the execute control
flow remains into the function until it is wholy executed. This means that
you cannot execute other part of the VEE application until the function is

Hope this suggestion could help you
