Summary

Contains properties that control the xy-plot in a XYPlotWindow.

Details

The PlotPicture object contains properties that control the field presentation in an XYPlotWindow. You can consider PlotPicture as a programmatic analog of the XY-Plot Curves dialog box. To modify the picture you have to get a PlotPicture object by the PlotSettings property, set the desired values to its properties and then put it back in the XYPlotWindow object.

Each curve on the xy-plot represents one field quantity. The quantities are joined in a few groups according to the units of measure. Only curves belonging to the same group can be drawn in the XYPlotWindow simultaneously. You have to first choose the right group, and then the quantities from the group.

Group property as QfQuantity
(read and write)

Returns and sets the group of quantities that is currently drawn on the xy-plot.

Curve (q as QfQuantity)
property as Boolean
(read and write)

Is True if a curve of the quantity q is drawn on the xy-plot.

RangeX (which As QfMinMax) property as Double
(read and write)

Returns and sets the upper or lower borders of the X-axis range.

RangeY (which As QfMinMax) property as Double)
(read and write)

Returns and sets the upper or lower borders of the Y-axis range.

Markers property as Boolean
(read and write)

Is True if curve markers are drawn on the plot.

GridLines property as Boolean
(read and write)

Is True if grid lines are drawn on the plot.

Parent property as XYPlotWindow
(read-only)

Returns the XYPlotWindow that the PlotPicture is applicable to.

Special properties for time-harmonic magnetics problem

Mode property as QfQuantityMode
(read and write)

Sets and returns the mode of the complex physical quantities.

Phase property as Double
(read and write)

Sets and returns the phase value for physical quantities if they are shown in the qfMomentary mode. The phase angle is always measured in degrees.
