Setting DADiSP's Window Configuration

 

The following dadisp.cnf keywords are used to set DADiSP's Window configuration.

 

LABEL_ORIENT

 

Set to 1 to rotate the y-axis labels, or 0 to leave the default orientation.

 

VERT_CURSOR

 

Turn the Vertical Cursor ON (set to 1) to display the index, x-value, and y-value for all series in the Window. Turn OFF (set to 0) to return to the crosshair cursor.

 

CURSOR1_MEMORY, CURSOR2_MEMORY

 

DADiSP has 2 cursors which move point-by-point across the series in the Window. When CURSOR1_MEMORY and CURSOR2_MEMORY are set to 1, DADiSP will 'remember' the last location of the cursors. This means that, if you scroll the data in the Window while the cursor is off, then turn the cursor back on, DADiSP will restore the cursors their previous location. This may cause DADiSP to shift the data in the Window if necessary, so that the last cursor position is displayed in the viewing range. To disable this, and have the cursors displayed in the center of the Window anytime they are turned on, set CURSOR1_MEMORY and CURSOR2_MEMORY to 0.

 

ITEM_MEMORY

 

DADiSP has two cursors that can move between items in the Window. When ITEM_MEMORY is set to 1, DADiSP will "remember" the last item location of the cursors. This means that: if the cursor was on an item, when the cursor is active on the item, it appears on the item at the position saved for that item; if the cursor was not on the item before, and is moved to the item, the cursor starts at the position of the item from which it came. To disable the item memory feature and have the cursors move from item-to-item at the same position, set ITEM_MEMORY to 0.

 

RESIZE_WINDOWS

 

Individual Windows in the Worksheet can be resized with the mouse. Click the left mouse button on a Window border, drag to resize, and release. Set to 1 to enable or 0 to disable this capability for the Worksheet.

 

X_GRID_ON, Y_GRID_ON

 

Set to 1 for X (horizontal) and/or Y (vertical) grids to default to ON, or 0 for OFF. Dynamic changes to this parameter take effect for new Windows added to the Worksheet.

 

X_LOG_SCALE, Y_LOG_SCALE

 

Set the default X and Y axis scales to Log Scale (ON, 1) or Linear Scale (OFF, 0). Dynamic changes to this parameter take effect for new Windows added to the Worksheet.

 

X_GRID_STYLE, Y_GRID_STYLE

 

Set the default grid style for the X and Y grids. Grid options are: no grids (0), Solid (1), Dashed (2), and Dotted (3). The X and Y grid styles can be different. Dynamic changes to this parameter take effect for new Windows added to the Worksheet.

 

DEFAULT_SCALES

 

Set the default scale location. Axes can be located on the Bottom or Top (X-axis), Left or Right (Y-axis), and with or without labels (in any combination). Dynamic changes to this parameter take effect for new Windows added to the Worksheet. See the SCALES function in the DADiSP Function Reference Manual for valid settings.

 

NUM_DEFAULT_WINDOWS

 

Set the number of empty Windows in the default "UNTITLED" Worksheet. This Worksheet is created when you select File, New, Worksheet from the pull-down menus. The minimum number is 0, and the maximum number is 100.
