Parameter: Display resolution

Full name: Horizontal resolution for W.F. display
Range: [ 0, 2 billion ]
Initial value: 0

Affects: most waveforms displayed when setting parameters visually

When displaying large waveforms on the screen, it is often time consuming and unnecessary to show them at their full resolution. This parameter determines the minimum number of data points which are to be displayed across the screen for any one section of the waveform. For example, with a specified value of 4000, if a waveform is shown in three sections, at least 12,000 points will be displayed in total. (The "Max W.F. section" parameter determines if and how the waveform will be displayed in sections.) Setting the resolution to 0 causes waveforms to be shown at the full resolution.

This parameter's initial value used to be set to a default of 4000. As the performance of current systems no longer requires limiting the resolution to speed up the process of fetching and displaying waveforms, the initial value is now set to 0, so that waveforms display at full resolution by default.

Waveforms displayed for visually setting spike parameters are always shown at the full resolution, regardless of this parameter setting.
