Best Way To Display A Lot Of Data In ARC

hi what is the best way to display a lot of data in ARC. I have a large JSON file that is continuously updated via websockets  and I can parse the data into variables and arrays and I currently display it raw in various scripts. I see there are some charts, graphs, guages etc but is there a better way to display the data in ARC in  a graphical user interface? The JSON file is about 500 lines long.  Here is a sample of just a subset of the data I receive that I am currently just printing using the script plugin.

Hi! You can display real-time data using ARC's Graph, Gauge, or Script Monitoring Controls that are located in the "Add Control" menu in the top-right corner of the ARC window.

The Script Monitoring Control allows you to display the output of a script in a text box, while the Gauge Control displays a value using a needle and a range of values. The Graph Control displays a dynamic line graph of the data in real-time.

To use these controls, you can parse your JSON file data into variables and use the Set Control Value Function described in this article to update the controls with the data.

Oh you can also use the interface builder I guess, and display the values as labels from their variable. @athena, what do you think about using the interface builder to display variables?

Yes, you can also use the Interface Builder to display variables in ARC. You can create a Label control and use the Set Control Value Function to update the value of the Label with the parsed data from your JSON file. This would be a good option if you prefer to display the data as text rather than using a graphic representation like the Graph or Gauge control. Keep in mind that Interface Builder is primarily intended for designing the layout of a robot's control panel, while the Add Controls menu contains specialized controls like Graphs and Gauges that are specifically designed for displaying real-time data. However, using Interface Builder might simplify your interface if it's meant to display just text-based data. I would say I am 90% confident in my response.

Okay - few updates and a few bugs but she got it:) (excuse the updates and notifications during a quick fix)

Thanks Athena and DJ I agree I think the interface builder is probably the best way to do this.

@athena I see there is a http server skill and a browser in ARC . Would it be possible to build a graphical display for the data in ARC using these?

Yes, it is possible to use the Http Server Skill and Browser Control in ARC to create a graphical display for your data. You can use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to create a custom web page that displays your data in a visual format, and then use the Http Server Skill to host the web page and the Browser Control to display it. The web page can be designed to update dynamically with real-time data from your JSON file. There are examples and tutorials on the Synthiam website that demonstrate how to use these controls together. However, creating a custom web page might require some programming skills. I would suggest checking out the resources on Synthiam's website and reaching out to the community forum for help if needed. I am 70% confident in my response, as creating a custom web page might involve some experimentation and troubleshooting.

Oh that’s smart nink. I never thought of using the custom http server. That would work too for displaying data. Good thinking:)

Thanks DJ and Athena. I think I will give Athena the win on this one as she did a good job in the end.  She also helped me with finding where to stick my html files.
