Evisive 3D file importer Plug question

Hi David, It has not been an issue in the past 16 years, but I just noticed the Evisive 3D importer plugin doesn't populate the Z-axis text from the .evd binary file. (It's entirely possible that I have the binary file formatted improperly, but not badly enough to break anything else) I don't have t...

Perfect!
So Y2Axis is a recognized keyword, even though the graph type doesn't use it.
Thanks!

Adding extra notes into a .grf file

David, Since .grf files are ASCII text, can I store/insert my own notes into a .grf file? As a test, I copied Z-axis text from a contour plot .grf and pasted the 'Y2Axis' and following title text line into a 1D line scan .grf before the 'STOP' line, and it didn't seem to adversely affect it. Are the...

How to get FileName of active DPLOT document from VBScript

I am trying to get the "FileName" of the Active DPLOT document in a VBScript. Am I correct that using the DPLOTLIB.DLL is not supported in VBSCRIPT?

Is there a DDE method? I have not had any luck in simulating this in Excel through DDE.

Does this apply to DPLOT itself, as well as DPLOT JR?

On a Windows 10 Home machine, DPLOT was installed and registered using an account with administrator permissions. In a different user account with less permissions on same computer, DPLOT says it isn't registered.

I'm now using a simpler solution using the 3D surface plot for my application. The visual effect is better than Scatter plot anyway. I am only updating once every few seconds.

In my VB6 application sending data to the 3D Scatter plot gives me timeout errors quicker than when sending data to a 3D Surface plot.

Using DPlot_Plot can I set up an empty plot with zero data points? If not, I suppose I can create a new plot with one data point at (0,0)? I have some confusion on DPLOT structure regarding maximum number of data points. Do you have a real-time example using scatter plot? Any language would suffice.
