IDMPlot interface implemented only for backward compatibility with DM2000. Use IDMPlot3 interface instead.
|CurrentSerie||3||Return Serie object for current serie|
|XAxis||4||Return Axis object for X axis|
|YAxis||5||Return Axis object for Y axis|
|Select||12||Set plot selection|
|AddSerie||13||Create new plot serie|
|Series||14||Return Serie object for selected serie|
|r/o property SerieCount: Long|
Returns number of series in Series array.
|property SerieIndex: Long|
Like one of document windows is active, one of plot series is current. Current serie displayed in serie toolbar and most of UI operations act on the current serie. This property allows you to change index of current serie programmatically (series are indexed from 0 to SerieCount-1).
|r/o property CurrentSerie: IDispatch|
This property returns current serie object; it is equal to Series[SerieIndex]. Note that CurrentSerie may be nil if SerieIndex<0 or SerieCount=0.
|r/o property XAxis: IDispatch|
For DMPlot, XAxis returns reference to the DMAxis object that represents bottom plot axis.
For DMSerie and DMLabel, XAxis property returns reference to the DMAxis object and allows you to change horizontal axis associated with given label or series (which is used to introduce coordinate system for rendering series points or label object).
dim Plt set Plt=Server.ActiveDocument.Plot Plt.CurrentSerie.XAxis=Plt.XAxis2 Plt.Labels(0).XAxis=Plt.XAxis2
|r/o property YAxis: IDispatch|
For DMPlot, YAxis returns reference to the DMAxis object that represents left plot axis.
For DMSerie and DMLabel, YAxis property returns reference to the DMAxis object and allows you to change vertical axis associated with given label or series (which is used to introduce coordinate system for rendering series points or label object).
dim Plt set Plt=Server.ActiveDocument.Plot Plt.CurrentSerie.YAxis=Plt.YAxis2 Plt.Labels(0).YAxis=Plt.YAxis2
|property SelectionTop: Double|
For DMPlot, this property is a double-precision coordinate of the top of the plot selection area.
For DMWorksheet, this property is an integer position of the top line in the selected block of cells, or the vertical position of the selected cell.
|property SelectionBottom: Double|
For DMPlot, this property is a double-precision coordinate of the bottom of the plot selection area.
For DMWorksheet, this property is an integer position of the bottom line in the selected block of cells, or the vertical position of the selected cell.
|property SelectionLeft: Double|
For DMPlot, this property is a double-precision coordinate of the left of the plot selection area.
For DMWorksheet, this property is an integer position of the left column in the selected block of cells, or the horizontal position of the selected cell. Note that columns are counted from 1!
|property SelectionRight: Double|
For DMPlot, this property is a double-precision coordinate of the right of the plot selection area.
For DMWorksheet, this property is an integer position of the right column in the selected block of cells, or the horizontal position of the selected cell. Note that columns are counted from 1!
|function CopyToClipboard(Mode, UseTabs): VOID|
For DMNotes, this method copies selected text on the clipboard as in any text editor.
For DMPlot, CopyToClipboard has a parameters. Mode parameter determine what data will be copied; possible values listed in the PlotCopyModes enumeration. UseTabs parameter defines what character will be used as separator between values: some programs can correctly paste values only if they are separated by tabstop character. Keep in mind that CopyToClipboard acts only on the data in the current plot serie, and only points whose coordinates are within the selection area are copied. If plot selection is not visible, all points or data elements are copied.
For both DMSerie and DMLabel, properties of the object are copied in the special binary format.
For DMWorksheet, it copies selected worksheet cells to the clipboard as a simple text block. UseTabs parameter also defines what character will be used as separator between values. It also puts selection data range as a serie object.
You can use system Clipboard Viewer utility to investigate what data formats are used at every case.
|function Delete: VOID|
For DMRegistry and DMINIFile, Delete method deletes selected Value (or INI file section). Name parameter is either name or index in the Items collection. If object was opened in the Read-Only mode, Delete call will have no effect.
For DMNotes, DMPlot and DMWorksheet objects Delete method has no parameters and should be used to delete selected data range in the appropriate objects: selected text, worksheet cells or "selected" points (points whose coordinates belong to selected plot area) in the current plot serie. Note that for DMPlot, if selection is not visible, all points from the current plot serie will be deleted.
For DMSerie and DMLabel, this method just deletes the object. It acts as the appropriate method of owner collection (DMPlot or DMLabels).
|function Select(X1, X2, Y1, Y2): VOID|
For DMNotes object, this method should be used to select text in the editor. SelStart and SelEnd parameters are first and last character positions.
For DMPlot object, Select() changes numeric (double precision) coordinates of the plot selection area. This area may be visualized using SelectionVisible property and affects on some plot editing commands.
For DMWorksheet, this method defines integer coordinates of the worksheet selection. Left and Right ranges are (1..26), Top and Bottom are (0..Container.ItemCount-1).
For DMSerie, Select() has almost the same meaning as for DMWorksheet. Columns are ranged from 1 to 26, lines - from 0 to Container.ItemCount-1. However, XCol and YCol must represent valid data, that is, all items in the selected data range must have appropriate number of columns.
For DMLabel, this method allows you programmatically select label object. Notice that Select() has no effect until IDMPlot2.MouseMode<>pmmLabelEdit.
|function AddSerie: IDispatch|
Adds a new DMSerie object to the end of Series() array and return reference to this object.
|r/o property Series[Index]: IDispatch|
Read-only array of DMSerie objects. Index parameter ranges from 0 to SerieCount-1. This property gives you "random access" to plot series.
You also may iterate "for each" cycle on DMPlot object as shown in the example below.
set Plt=Server.ActiveDocument.Plot for I=0 to Plt.SerieCount-1 Plt.Series(I).Text="My serie #" & I next or for each Ser in Server.ActiveDocument.Plot Ser.Text="My serie" next
