I got an error when running your plotting script above at line from pyqtgraph import PlotWidget, plot, an error below occurs:

Exception has occurred: AttributeError
module 'time' has no attribute 'clock'
File "C:\Dev\VsCodePython_ *main_* .py", line 16, in <module>
from pyqtgraph import PlotWidget, plot

C:\Dev\VsCodePython_ *main_* .py is my script file with the plotting code. The pyqtgraph is in my installed list.

Hey @Bob_M --- this is an issue between your version of PyQtGraph and Python 3.8. The clock member was removed from time in Python 3.8.

It's fixed in the next release candidate of PyQtGraph so you can either install the developer version from github using

pip install git+

wait for the final release, or downgrade to Python 3.7 in the meantime.
