Basically we need the output from the mhist code. The most convenient, and possibly easiest implementation would be to select required data (ID, variable, time range) in the midas history display, click a button requesting file output and input a file name. One might also want to specify the interval time required.

So what is wrong with using mhist directly? I understand that some users used to point and click might have hard time to start a command line utility, but I'm sure that I teach anybody to use mhist much faster compared to the time I would have to spend on implementing such a feature in the web interface. Well, I'll keep it in mind, but it has low priority.

A related nice feature would be like the root "view event status" , where text at the bottom of the history would display the position of the cursor in the history chart coordinates. Probably more work and less important to us.

Well if you teach me how to do this I'm happy to implement it. We are in a browser, and the history plot is a dump GIF image, while the ROOT windows is a native application. One would have to use some fance Javascript to implement such a thing, but I have no clue of how to do that.
