Bargraphs and Histograms

Based upon a screen test, I assume that histograms and bargraphs can not be use in the same screen? I tried to take CPU_usage_bargraph screen and add a histogram on line 4. The histogram displays fine, but the bargraph does not display correctly. The code:

Perhaps just a syntax error, but feedback would be appreciated.

I tried something similar but ended up with histogram characters in the bargraph.

I just did some further testing and when the computer is idling, the bargraph line displays solid and the histrogram line is blank. When idling, the histrogram should be basically blank.

If I start an application where the CPU usage increases, the screen (bargraph and histrogram lines) appears as desired.

It seems that the ::::: get replaced by the solid character when CPU usage is nil.

I thought it would make a nice screen with both sets of info (instant and history) displayed.

Bummer!:(

CC Admin (and therefore CC2) is probably running into the "number of custom characters" limitation.

It sounds like what you are trying would require more than 8.

That is what I would guess, also. Now that I am looking at screens again, I simply have to keep trying what is just not possible!;)

That is correct.

Histograms use all 8 custom chars.
Bargraphs use 3 per bargraph (or 3 for the first, and 1 for every bargraph after on the same screen if you're smart).
