Updating Forum Database to MySQL 8

The DPlot forums went down recently due to an unexpected upgrade by the website host to MySQL 8.0. The database has temporarily been moved to an alternate server to get the forums back online. We will be working over the next couple of weeks to backup and transfer the DPlot forums to a new MySQL 8.0...

Can you provide an example of the problem you are seeing? Or some sample data that produces this behavior? I cannot replicate the error you are describing without additional information or data to attempt to recreate what you are doing.

Thanks for the image. I am not seeing an easy way to adjust the curve label positions at the present time.

Are you able to provide an image of the graph you are trying to add labels to? When I am plotting multiple curves in my work, I typically rely on legends with different curve lines and line or point patterns to distinguish between them. What you seem to be describing sounds more like text for a Poin...

You can try Options>Amplitude Limits but it doesn't sound like that will solve the problem. My bet is there is a break in the data after line 4619 - say a blank line. Or some value that DPlot doesn't understand, so it stops reading. You should be able to find what is going on with Notepad, but a tex...

On the Options>Multiple Axes dialog box, check the "For grid lines, use independent tick marks on dependent scales" box and see if that helps.

If not, please save your plot as a DPlot file and send it to me at support@dplot.com.

I'm a little confused about what you want to do.

If so, you want to automatically export the results back to Ex...

One idea I had would be to interpret the .grf file as ASCII and parse any "Hide" lines to get this information, but this feels a bit patchwork if there are better options.
That's the only way that I can think of.

By default it sets the scale factors such that the physical distance along the X and Y axes is the same, and the distance along Z is approximately 1/2 of that. This generally fills the display nicely.

If the sizes are the same then the plots will still only be centered on each other if the fonts are the same size and the labels (especially along the Y axis) are the same width.

Mike,
There's no way to circumvent the behavior once an error has occurred. And within the macro there's no way to branch if some condition isn't met, like

if len(VAR_A) > 0 then
' do your normal thing
else
' do something else
endif

So... sorry!

Unless I miss something, you have not assigned the data values. So DPlot is getting a lot of undefined numbers (probably but not necessarily 0's). If that is the problem then there is likely an untrapped divide by 0 error in DPlot where it attempts to scale everything.
