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.
Changes the appearance of triangle plots. Flags is a combination of:
|0x0001||Draw USDA soil classification lines and labels.|
|0x0002||Clockwise orientation (numbers increase in a clockwise direction around the plot rather than counterclockwise, and the Y axis is on the right side rather than the left). This orientation is normally used with USDA textural plots.|
|0x0008||Draw IUGS mafic rock classification lines and labels.|
|0x0010||Draw IUGS ultramafic rock classification lines and labels.|
|0x0020||Draw Ab-An-Or (Albite-Anorthosite-Orthoclase) mineral classification lines and labels.|
|0x1000||Range of each component is 0-1 rather than the default 0-100, and the total of X+Y+Z is 1.0 rather than 100.|
0x0001, 0x0008, 0x0010, and 0x0020 are mutually exclusive - they cannot be combined, in other words.
