makewind

Purpose

Creates a graphic panel of specific size and position and adds it to the list of graphic panels.

Note

This function is for the deprecated PQG graphics. For similar functionality, see plotLayout() and plotCustomLayout().

Library

pgraph

Format

makewind(xsize, ysize, xshft, yshft, typ)
Parameters:
  • xsize (scalar) – horizontal size of the graphic panel in inches.
  • ysize (scalar) – vertical size of the graphic panel in inches.
  • xshft (scalar) – horizontal distance from left edge of window in inches.
  • yshft (scalar) – vertical distance from bottom edge of window in inches.
  • typ (scalar) –

    graphic panel attribute type. If this value is 1, the graphic panels will be transparent.

    If 0, the graphic panels will be nontransparent.

Remarks

Note that if this procedure is used when rotating the page, the passed parameters are scaled appropriately to the newly oriented page. The size and shift values will not be true inches when printed, but the graphic panel size to page size ratio will remain the same. The result of this implementation automates the rotation and eliminates the required graphic panel recalculations by the user.

See the window() command for creating tiled graphic panels. For more information on using graphic panels, see Tiled Graphic Panels, Section 1.0.1.
