Description

The Number of Nonconformities (c) control chart is used to display SPC results that have nonconformities counts for each sample. It does not retrieve SPC results from the SPC module so it must be used with either the SPC Selector or the SPC Controller components that do. Only SPC results with c chart SPC Data Format specified will be displayed.

Custom Methods

Custom methods allow you to add your own component functions to a component that can be called through scripting. This is a useful and clean method of re-using script that is specific to the component (say you want to update a visual aspect of the component in the same way whether a user clicks on the component or a window property value changes). See Component Custom Methods in the Ignition Help Manual for more information.

 


 

Translation Manager

Right clicking the control chart will give the pop up menu items like Delete Sample, Edit Note, Hide Point and Restore Hidden Points. SPC chart popup panel menu strings are localizable. The alternate strings can be added through the Ignition translation manager (not the component translation manager). Reopen the control chart page and right click on a point to manifest the changes.


 

Customizers

 This component does not have any custom properties.


 

Component Functions

Control charts such as C-Chart, Individual and Range, Median and Range, NP-Chart, Pareto Chart, P-Chart, U-Chart, Xbar and R Chart, Xbar and S Chart inherit these script functions.
