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.
Inverts the scaling of XY plots on the X (axes=1) or Y (axes=2) axis, or both axes for axes=3. Normal scaling is restored for axes=0. This command performs the identical function as the Invert X and Invert Y checkboxes on the Extents/Intervals /Size dialog box. This command is ignored for polar charts, tripartite grids, grain size distribution plots, and triangle plots. NOTE: For 3D plots, this same functionality is accomplished by using negative scale factors with the ContourScales command.
