In this topic, you will learn the following:

4.4.1 Add Measurements to the Curve

To add a measurement to the graph, follow these steps:

  1. From the schematic editor, click F9 to run a simulation.
  2. In the upper left corner just below the waveform viewer tool bar, check SW waveform.
  3. From the waveform viewer menu, select Measure > Minimum.
    Result: The minimum value of the SW voltage waveform now appears on the graph legend under where you checked SW.
    Note:  To see the complete label, you may have to adjust the splitter bar between the label and the tabs for the graphs.
