I'm very new to the Arduino world so bare with me. I would like to plot live data that I receive from my arduino. I use the Serial Monitor to read user input, show text, etc.
The only way I found to plot data from the arduino is by printing the data out in the serial monitor I would rather prefer the data not to be shown in the serial monitor at all (just from a visual standpoint) but I guess there is no way around it.
Anyways, I would like to read and plot the data only when the user makes a specific input into the Serial Monitor.
Let's say the user types in: "start" now the arduino prints out the values that needs to be plotted.
But every plotting tutorial on plotting with the arduino that I could find always prints out the data right from the start. I want to start the plotting with the specific user input.
I hope I could explain my question well enough. Thank you in advance for your help.
