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.
Finds an empty document window. If no empty document window exists, FileNew opens a new document window and sets the plot type to X,Y plot. Subsequent commands in the same DDE conversation or macro reference the newly opened document.
Identical to [FileNew()], but sets the plot type to 1D statistics plot.
Identical to [FileNew()], but sets the plot type to 3D random points (contour plot).
Identical to [FileNew()], but sets the plot type to 4D random points (contour plot).
Identical to [FileNew()], but sets the plot type to 3D random points (scatter plot).
