4.1.3 Accessing Embedded Graphs

List Embedded Graphs

List Embedded Graphs in the Project

List all embedded/floating graph pages in the project, along with embedding information(Worksheet, Row, Column).

doc -e P
{
string wkb$, name$;
if(page.IsEmbedded==1) // list all embedded graphs
{
wkb$= page.isEmbedded$;
name$= %(page.label$);
if(name.Getlength()==0 ) name$= %H; type "The embedded graph is %(name$)";
type "It is in %(wkb$)"; } if(page.IsEmbedded==2) // list all floating graphs { wkb$ = page.isEmbedded$; name$ = %(page.label$); if(name.Getlength()==0 ) name$ = %H;
type "The floating graph is %(name$)"; type "It is in %(wkb$)";
}
}

List Embedded Graphs in the Active Worksheet

The example below lists all embedded graph in the active worksheet.

 Notes: list -eg can also dump all the name of embedded graphs in the active worksheet to the Script Window. Please note that the information got from list -eg can not be further processed.
range rA = !; //define range of the active worksheet
doc -e P //loop over all graph window in project
{
if(page.IsEmbedded==1) //if the graph is a embedded graph
{
range rB = page.isEmbedded\$; //define a range where the embedded graph locates
if (rB.GetLayer() == rA.GetLayer())
{
type %H;
}

};
}

Customize the Embedded Graphs

The example below re-scale each layer of a embedded graph to show all plots

//Suppose Graph2 is an embedded graph in workbook.
win -o Graph2
{
doc -e LW //loop over all layers in the graph window
{
Rescale;
}
}
