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.
JR/Viewer indicates that the command is NOT supported by DPlot Jr or DPlot Viewer.
If state=1, draws planes from the edge of the 3D contour plot surface to the XY plane, obscuring the underside of the surface. Planes will be the color specified by color (blue*65536+green*256+red or 0x00bbggrr), outlined with the border color (set with [Color(-2,r,g,b)]). If color is omitted, planes will be white. Elevation angle (set with ContourView) less than 0 should not be used in this case. This command (for state=1) is equivalent to checking the Sides checkbox in the 3D group on the Contour Options dialog box.
