Alternatives to Opening Serial Plotter and Serial Monitor at the same time

Alternatives to Opening Serial Plotter and Serial Monitor at the same time

Hi, I know that we are unable to open serial plotter and monitor at the same time but i need to show both the graphs and values.

Is there any way i can do so?

Please help. thanks!

You could use software serial for the plotter. It's never a great idea but, if you are using an old pen plotter, it should be adequate.

Nick_Pyner: You could use software serial for the plotter.

I think that would need to connect to a TTL-USB cable to connect it to the PC ?

@purbluish, another option is to write your own PC program that takes a single stream of data from the Arduino and uses it to produce a graph and text output

I have never used the Serial Plotter (I am still at Arduino 1.5.6) so I don't know what it can or can't do. If you want to display a graph and the numbers that form the graph you may be interested in my EzScrn demo.

Yes, probably. I keep forgetting about that serial plotter. I have had a look at it, but it isn’t worth remembering.
