1. A display device for a measuring instrument comprising:
a display screen; and
a processor or circuit coupled to the display screen, the processor or circuit being configured to:
receive a first measured value;
calculate first coordinates for drawing, on the display screen, a figure that is based on the first measured value;
draw on the display screen, based on the first coordinates, a frame that includes a figure that is based on the first measured value;
receive a second measured value;
calculate second coordinates for drawing, on the display screen, a figure that is based on the second measured value;
acquire coordinates of a redrawing region, which is a region on the display screen that is based on the first coordinates and the second coordinates, the size of the redrawing region being smaller than the size of the drawn frame; and
execute a redrawing function for redrawing only a portion of the drawn frame based on the calculated second coordinates.
