# ITEMCOUNT

## Purpose:

Returns the number of columns in an item.

## Syntax:

ITEMCOUNT(win, item)

win |
- |
Optional. Window reference. Defaults to the
current Window. |

item |
- |
Optional. A positive integer, the index to
the item in the Window. Defaults to 1. |

## Returns:

An integer, the number of series (columns)
that comprise the referenced item.

## Example:

W1: gsin(100, .01)

W2: gcos(100, .01)

W3: xy(W1, W2)

itemcount(W3, 1)

returns the value 2. There are two columns
in an XY plot.

## Example:

W4: errorbar(W1+3*stdev(W1), W1+stdev(W1),
W1-stdev(W1), W1-3*stdev(W1), 1)

itemcount(W4,1)

returns 4, the number of series that comprise
an ERRORBAR series.

## Remarks:

An ITEM is a data object comprised of
one or more series. For example, an interval series is an item that consists
of one series, an XY series is an item
that consists of 2 series and an XYZ
series is an item that consists of 3 series.

If the specified item number is larger
than the number of items in the window, ITEMCOUNT returns 0.
