Demonstrates the difference between FIFO DataSeries and standard DataSeries. A FIFO series discards old data-points once a predefined number of points is met. This type of data-series is extremely efficient for scrolling charts, where you do not care about discarded (off-screen) data.

FIFO Series can be used in more ways than just scrolling a chart. For instance, reload the entire FIFO buffer each frame to get a Spectrum Analyzer style chart. Or, use FIFO series and call setVisibleRange() on X-Axis to achieve an ECG style chart.


To switch to FIFO series just need to set FifoCapacity for DataSeries
