has updated its Vvidget graphing software system for Mac OS X to version 8.5.8. The update adds semi-log and log-log graphs, full-cycle and sub-cycle formats and more.
Formerly called OpenGraph, Vvidget offers a programming framework for making applications that report data in graph, custom map and textual formats. Vvidget Pro is used to make real-time, enterprise-level visualization, process control and analysis systems. Vvidget Builder is used to lay out graphs with point-and-click methods. Vvidget Palette is used to drag and drop graphs into a developer’s custom applications, and the Peer Visual Server is used by corporate developers to generate dynamic graphs and reports for print and Web media.
As of version 8.5.8, VVI has added five wizards within Vvidget Builder as another entry point into making graphs and charts. You can now enter data and click a button to see the graph. Then you can place it on a Vvidget Builder document to gain access to the full amount of formatting options for fine-tuning the graph.
Number input entry formatting is improved for wide dynamic range and resolution. Plus, the palette and pre-configured Peer Visual Server input options are updated to accept UTF8 encoded text. Exponential notation now formats with superscripts.
