SmartDashboard Clear Graphs

How do you get a smartdashboard graph to reset after a match? For now, we are closing and reopening the dashboard. Is there a better way to do this?

You can turn your graphs back into text boxes, and then back into graphs again…but still, yes, there should be a better way to do this.

This option would be appreciated.

according to this update a clear line plot feature has been added to the smart dashboard. How does one “update” smartdashboard to allow access to this feature? I am away from our programming laptop, so it might be as easy as check for updates in eclipse but any advice would be appreciated.

There’s a couple of options:

  1. Wait for the next WPILib release (typically every 2 weeks), which will include this update as part of the plugins update.

  2. Clone the SmartDashboard git repository and build/run it yourself (open a command prompt, change to the directory where you cloned it, and run “gradlew build” to build or “gradlew run” to run).

Thanks Peter!
