Algosim documentation: diagram


Sets the current diagram.



diagram(S) sets the current diagram to the one named S; if there is no diagram named S, a new diagram with this name is created.

All subsequent 2D chart drawing and plotting operations will take place in this diagram.

A reference to the diagram is returned.

diagram() instructs the front-end to put each new 2D chart or plot in its own, newly created, and temporary diagram. It is not possible to add other objects to this diagram later on.

A named diagram can be displayed either docked in the main IDE window or floating in its own window. By right-clicking the diagram, you can detach a docked diagram or dock a detached diagram:

Image 1

Image 2

Closing the diagram viewer will not destroy the diagram, but only hide the window; it can later be reopened using the Window manager or, in the case of a named diagram, the diagram function.

To discard a diagram (and regain computer memory), close the window while the Shift key is depressed. (For instance, hold down the Shift key and click the cross titlebar button.)
