Hi all,

I am trying to figure out how to do this in R and I need your help.

My journey started from something like the following:


for(i in 1:(n©\window)) {

Then I wanted to make it nicer looking so I went to dygraph.

And then, I would like to be able to live send tick data from within Visual C++ so I started to investigate RInside.

Following the example code here:


I can open an RInside object in VC++, and then send some data to it, and then execute some command in it, and then get data back.

It is really great.

However, is there a way to have the real-time updating ticking plots to be drawn on dygraph inside RInside?

It turns out the dygraph package tends to draw onto a browser. That makes the real-time updating pretty slow.

Is there a way to set the dygraph to plot to a GUI window in VC++? For example, a QT or MFC GUI window?

My working environment is Win7 64bit ,with VS 2013 and VS2015, QT 5.3 32bit.

Could anybody please shed some lights on me?

Thanks a lot!
