FAQ about Graphics

At this section we would like to answer some important questions about Graphics.

Are there special requirements for using stereoscopic view in jBEAM?

Yes, you need this minimum system requirements:

1.     PC with Microsoft® Windows® Vista 32/64-bit or Windows 7 32/64-bit

2.    Graphic processor:

  • NVidia Quadro Plex 7000
  • NVidia Quadro 6000
  • NVidia Quadro 5000
  • NVidia Quadro 4000
  • NVidia Quadro FX 5800
  • NVidia Quadro FX 4800
  • NVidia Quadro FX 3800 with stereo connector
  • NVidia Quadro FX 5600
  • NVidia Quadro FX 4700 X2
  • NVidia Quadro FX 4600
  • NVidia Quadro FX 3700

3.    3D-Monitor/TV/Beamer (we recommend Acer GD245HQ)

4.    3D-Glasses (for example NVidia Vision 3D Kit für Quadro)

We tested with the following hardware:

  • Intel QuadCore PC with 8GB RAM
  • NVidia Quadro FX 4700
  • Acer GD245HQ-Monitor
  • 3D-TVs from Samsung 7090-and 8090-series

How can I define value dependent colors in tables?

Free table and interactive table offers the possibility to define value dependent text- and backgroundcolors. For columns of typ "channel" the colors can be set dependent a own condition or a condition of another channel.

The first column was pigmented with the following settings:

Tabellendialog.PNG

For values smaller -0,5 the text color was set to "blue", the background color to "red" and the text style to "bold".

For values bigger or equal 0,5 the background color is set to "green". In this sample, the color ist defined by a own definition. To take over conditions from another column, the radiobutton "Use definition of column..." has to be selected.

How can I accent ranges in Universal-2D-graph?

Its possible to define background colors for the complete graph or for defined ranges of the graph, for example to mark the ranges were a special status occured while measurement.

BC1.PNG

To define a background range, doubleclick on the axis. The axis dialog opens.

BC2.PNG

Ensure, the checkbox "fill background" is selected and click the "Modify"-Button.

BC3.PNG

To define a background for the full axis choose "complete". In this sample we want to define a range an selext the second radiobutton.

To generate a new range click on the "new"-symbol, choose the range "from" "to" on the axis an select your desired background color.

The number format of the ranges depends of the format of the axis scaling. It's possible to define several ranges with different settings. Now confirm your settings in "fill mode" dialog an confirm the axis dialog afterwards.

Now your result should look like the next picture.

How can I align several graphic elements?

When an object is moved or increased via mouse, reference lines are shown to align it to other objects.

How can graphic objects catch the background raster?

To ensure, graphic objects catching the background raster, click the [STRG/CTRL]-button, while zooming or moving graphic objects.

How can I zoom graphic objects proportional?

To ensure a proportional propotion between height and weight while zooming, click the [SHIFT]-button while zooming graphic objects. Line catch the angles of 0°, 45° and 90° additionally.
