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.
For 3D scatter plots, state may have the following bits set:
|1:||Draws lines between data points.|
|2:||Draws droplines from each symbol to the base XY plane.|
|4:||Droplines are drawn in the symbol color. If not set, droplines are drawn in black. Ignored if (state & 2)=0.|
|8:||Lines between data points will be in the color of the first endpoint if the ColorBasis is set to 0 (colors based on Z value). If not set, these lines will be drawn in black. Ignored if (state & 1)=0.|
Line width for line segments between points in thousandths of inches is specified by width1. Line width for droplines in thousandths of inches is specified by width2. All parameters are optional and must be separated by commas. Omitted values retain their previous setting.
