I want to call Dview to open *.csv file by command line. Could Dview be called by CLI ?
UPDATE: i currently have problem with D:/SIM/Dview/Dview.exe --verbose /l /s 4 /e 15 /i 2 /i 34 - seem there is only last /i 34 got shown while the first variable /i 0 always got shown first. How to show in second chart ?

Great question! Look for an expanded role for Dview with OpenStudio in the near future.

Yes, DView accepts a number of command-line arguments. Type dview.exe --help and you'll see this:

Use the /v argument instead?

/v prones to error. Could you give me an example of /v with multi variable / multi csv selection?
