RealTime Grid Display

The RealTime Grid display provides an overview of real-time information from data producing items including the object’s current state, its last value and the quality of the value. Updates are triggered by changes in the dynamic properties of objects assigned to the display. The display can be opened from the Open menu (Shortcut Ctrl+R) or from the context menu of an object in a model panel (Shortcut Alt+R).
