If blank, this property does nothing. If you set this property to the name of a file, the recorder will write recorded data to the file. If the file you provide does not exist, the file will be created. If the file does exist, data will be read from the file into the recorder and the plot(s) for that data will be displayed on the recorder if the time of the data in the file corresponds to the current timeframe displayed on the recorder. Any new data that is recorded will be appended to the file.
