ColorCycle macro command

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Macro commands may be used either in macros or by sending the commands to DPlot via dynamic data exchange (DDE). Some commands are valid only in macros (noted by Macros Only). Commands sent to DPlot via DDE must be enclosed by square brackets [     ]. Macro commands should not include the brackets.

Command parameters shown in the descriptions below are placeholders for the actual values. Command parameters are either numeric values, equations that evaluate to numbers, or character strings. Character string parameters are always bound by double quotation marks. Equations must be preceded by an equals sign (=).

The pipe symbol (|) in the command syntax indicates that a parameter is optional, and should not be included in your macro unless otherwise noted.

All indices into arrays are 1-based, e.g. Curve1=1 refers to the first curve in a plot.

A 0x prefix for numbers in the descriptions below indicates hexadecimal notation; e.g. 0x0010 = 16.

JR/Viewer indicates that the command is supported by DPlot Jr or DPlot Viewer.

For XY plots, copies the first cycle colors to all subsequent groups of cycle colors. For example if cycle=10, then the color used for the first curve will be copied to the 11th, 21st, 31st,... colors, color #2 will be copied to the 12th, 22nd, 32nd,... colors, etc. This command only effects the current color specifications; it is not persistent. So if you subsequently edit color #3, for example, that change will not be propogated to color 3+cycle, 3+2*cycle, etc.
