GETCOMPLEXDATA

Purpose:

Retrieves complex data from a command, Window or variable as two variants from DADiSP’s ActiveX Automation Server.

Syntax:

[out] INT result = GetComplexData(

[in] BSTR "name", [out] VARIANT *real, [out] VARIANT *imag, [in] INT form)

"name"

-

A string, the name of the source Window or variable to retrieve.

real

-

A variant, the destination array for the real or magnitude part.

imag

-

A variant, the destination array for the imaginary or phase part.

form

-

An integer. The complex form of the returned data.

0:

Real / Imaginary

1:

Magintude / Phase

Returns:

An integer, 1 if successful.

Example:

Visual Basic Example:

 

Dim DADiSP as Object

Dim VBData(1000) as Double

Dim RealData as Variant

Dim ImagData as Variant

 

’’’ Create VB data array

For i = 0 To 1000

    VBData(i) = Rnd() 

Next i

 

’’’ Connect to DADiSP

Set DADiSP = CreateObject("dadisp.application")

 

’’’ Create a 2 Window Worksheet without prompting

Call DADiSP.Execute("newworksheet(2, 0)")

 

’’’ Put VB array in W1

Call DADiSP.PutSeries("W1", VBData)

 

’’’ Label W1

Call DADiSP.Execute("label(W1, 'Data from Visual Basic')")

 

’’’ get complex series in real /imag form

Call DADiSP.GetComplexData("sqrt(W1-mean(W1))", RealData, ImagData, 0)

 

’’’ show it

DADiSP.Visible = 1

 

 

Starts DADiSP as an ActiveX Automation server, creates a 2 Window Worksheet and places 1001 random samples from Visual Basic into W1. The Window is labeled. The mean of the data is removed and the square root of this series returned. Since some of the zero mean values are negative, the resulting square root series is complex. The real part of the series is returned in the variant RealData and the imaginary part is returned in ImagData.

 

If form was set to 1, RealData would contain the magnitude part while ImagData would contain the phase part.

Remarks:

If the return type is a series, GetComplexData creates arrays of the appropriate size.

 

GetComplexData returns data as a variant type. See GETCOMPLEXSERIES or GETSERIES to return a SafeArray.
