Examples

This example creates a blank workbook named FILAVG by newbook X-Function.
Then it creates new sheets by newsheet X-Function and imports pclamp data files with file name starting with filavg into sheets.
It uses plotpclamp X-Function to plot the pclamp data and use g2w X-Function to merge the graphs into a new sheet in workbook.

////Get Origin Program Files folder
%A=SYSTEM.PATH.PROGRAM$;
//create a book to place pclamp data
newbook s:=0 name:="FILAVG" result:=bkn$;
%b=bkn$;
//set the file1 which will be imported
//fname$="%ASamples\Import and Export\pClamp\FILAVG01.DAT";
string fns, path$="%ASamples\Import and Export\pClamp"; 
findfiles fname:=fns$ ext:="filavg*.dat"; 
//findFiles will pack multiple files separated by \r\n, or CRLF
int n = fns.GetNumTokens(CRLF);
int nShtID;
for(int ii = 1; ii <=n; ii++)
{
      fname$=fns.GetToken(ii, CRLF)$;
      newsheet b:=bkn$;
      nShtID = range2UID(sname$);
      //wactive sheet:=uid2name(nShtID)$ book:=bkn$;
