    Good afternoon.

    I was wondering if there was a way to change the definition of the legal file format for Live Graph. A program I use in my research writes the data to a CSV file but the first column is left blank for 'Remarks'. There is no way to edit how the program writes data but I was hoping maybe I could change how Live Graph reads it. I tested this with a modified file where I removed the first column (and the first two rows with comments, there is no way to have the software print a # in front either) and the plot looked wonderful. If there is anybody that could help me modify Live Graph (I am not too experienced in writing Java scripts so I cannot do it myself) I would really appreciate the help!

    Thank you and have a great day!

    Update: I checked and the first two rows don't affect the plotting. The only issue is with the first column.

    Hi Andres!

    Modifying the application to treat the input file slightly differently is not very hard if you have a basic understanding of the Java programming language. Just download the sources and take a look.

    If you are not interested in the real-time functionality, you can also modify your files by hand after they are generated and before you load them into LiveGraph.

    As for making the source code modification for you - this is not something for which there is any capacity available on this end. Perhaps you can find a volunteer to help you out with this.

    Thanks,

    G))
