Hello everybody.
I use Origin v8.0951 and I try to do following. With drag & drop I can import and directly plot some data from a .txt file. I use following command:
plotxy iy:=((1,2)) plot:=200 ogl:=[<new template:= WAXSPublikation name:= FileName>];
The graph I get from this is now named "FileName", but I would like to get the real filename from what the data is extractet.

For example:
I have the file with the name "abc.txt", then the graphname should be abc.txt, that would be great ;-). Even just the name "abc" would be better, but I think thats much more complicate.

Thanks for help.

Cheers Chris

I suggest you divide the two ranges into separate columns (a.k.a. datasets). Label each with a unique long name or comment. Then plot.
Your labels should then show up in the legend.

Hello DrBobShepherd, thanks again.

Now the script wothout time delay works perfect, I donīt know the reason, thank you very much. :-)

Another filter I use is the following:
// Define two ranges from col 2 of the worksheet
range r1=2[1:32], r2=2[33:72];
// Plot first range creating a new graph
plotxy iy:=r1 plot:=202;
// Plot second range into same layer of the graph
plotxy iy:=r2 plot:=202 ogl:=1;


I would like to optimize it in the same way as described above. Can you tell me how?
Thanks,
chris

Has your script been saved with your filter? Could you be using the wrong import filter (you might be using the default ascii-import filter)?

If you are using the correct filter(the one with your script), your script should be executing immediately after the import. Perhaps a short time-delay is needed. Try the following line before the plotxy command:

sec -p 0.5; // A 0.5 second pause.

Please let me know if this works.

Hi Drbobshepherd and thank you for your help!

Yes it is.

When I change my Importfilter (in the wizzard) with your changes, I just get the importet worksheet, but no automatic plot, aned even no warning that anything is wrong.
When I execute the command "plotxy iy:=((1,2)) plot:=200 ogl:=[<new template:= WAXSPublikation name:= %A>];" after the import than I get the plot that I want to get.
Is there any change to change the wizzar settings that this works automatically? Thank you very much.

Cheers Chris

The filename of the latest file imported is saved in the page tree. So, edit your filter script to do this:

%A=page.info.user.variables.filename$; // Get filename.
plotxy iy:=((1,2)) plot:=200 ogl:=[<new template:= WAXSPublikation name:= %A>]; // Plot data, rename the graph window.
