A 2D GRAPH creates a plot from data stored within LIST's on the diagram pane of the USER INTERFACE or in the OUTPUT.
Line graphs are defined by specifying one or more Child LINE DATA objects to a 2D GRAPH.
Likewise, contour plots are defined by one or more Child CONTOUR DATA objects.
Besides the two Child data objects, LINE DATA and CONTOUR DATA, that can be added, there are three Child objects created automatically when a 2D GRAPH is created:
|Under USER INTERFACE|| Parent for CONTOUR DATA, LEGEND, LINE DATA
|Under OUTPUT||Optional Parameters:|
|Width:||Image width or initial plot window width in pixels.|
|Height:||Image height or initial plot window height in pixels.|
|Link Image:||Name of image file (.gif, .png, .jpg) to be used as thumbnail hyperlink.|
|Display:||Select method for displaying graph. (default→Image, Interactive, Both)|
|Style:||Select HTML Style for display of graph.|
|Show if:||Logical expression, if TRUE then graph shown, if FALSE then graph NOT shown.|
|Child objects of 2D GRAPH|
|CONTOUR DATA||Specifies contour data to be plotted|
|LEGEND||Activates a legend on a graph.|
|LINE DATA||Specifies line data to be plotted|
|TITLE||Specifies the main and sub titles of a 2D GRAPH.|
|X AXIS||Specifies the properties of the horizontal axis|
|Y AXIS||Specifies the properties of the vertical axis|
In reports, a 2D GRAPH is presented to a User in one of two ways:
The selection of the display method is controlled by the Display: parameter (Image or Interactive, respectively).
An example of a 2D GRAPH shown in a report as a link is shown below.
When displayed in Interactive link mode, a separate window will appear containing the line graph or contour plot upon on its link. An example of one of these graph windows is shown below.
