Owning Class: plots

Requires: MathScript RT Module

Syntax

set(obj)

set(obj, name)

set(obj, name1, value1, ..., nameN, valueN)

a = set(obj)

b = set(obj, name)

Description

Sets the attribute value of a plot object. Plot objects include line, plot area, plot window, and text objects. set(obj, name1, value1, ..., nameN, valueN) sets the attribute values you specify for the plot object referenced by obj. If you do not specify an attribute name and value, LabVIEW returns all attributes and possible values for the plot object referenced by obj. If you do not specify an attribute value, LabVIEW returns all possible values of the attribute specified by name.

Examples

X = [0:0.01:1];
Y = X.*X;
obj = plot(X, Y);
set(obj, 'Color', 'b', 'LineStyle', '--');

obj = axes;
b = set(obj, 'NextPlot')

t = 0:0.1:2*pi;
obj = plot(t(1), sin(t(1)));
hold on
obj1 = plot(t(1), sin(t(1)), 'ro');
axis([0, 2*pi, -1, 1])
for i = 2:length(t);
xx = get(obj, 'XData');
yy = get(obj, 'YData');
set(obj, 'XData', [xx, t(i)], 'YData', [yy, sin(t(i))]);
set(obj1, 'XData', t(i), 'YData', sin(t(i)));
end
