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.
Specifies the units for symbol sizes. If state=0 (default), symbol sizes are in 1000'ths of an inch. Symbols will be drawn in the same size when you zoom in/out or change the plot extents. If state=1, symbol sizes are proportional to the Y axis values (Z axis for 3D scatter plots). If you zoom in/out or change the plot extents, symbols are resized accordingly.
sets the size of all symbols to 0.05 inches, while:
sets the size of all symbols to 50 Y units. If the Y axis extends from 0 to 1000, for example, then symbols will be roughly 1/20 of the plot height in this case. This setting is ignored for logarithmic or probability scales on the Y axis. If used with these scale types, it will be automatically reset to 0 and all symbol sizes will be reset to a default height (approximately 1/40 of the plot height).
