SymbolSize 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.

Sets the height of the symbols used for curve number curve to size 1000'ths of an inch (or size Y units, depending on whether SymbolSizeUnits is used - see below). If curve is set to -1, this command changes the symbol size used by all curves.

For 3D/4D surface plots, curve=1 sets the size of the filled squares drawn at each data point if "data points" is checked on the Contour Options dialog, or equivalently the SymbolType is non-zero. The squares will always be an odd number (minimum=3) of pixels/dots, so that the square will be centered on the data point it represents.
