plotSetZRange

Purpose

Sets the range for the Z-axis.

Format

plotSetZRange(&myPlot, z_min, z_max)
Parameters:
  • &myPlot (struct pointer) – A plotControl structure pointer.
  • z_min (scalar) – minimum limit of the Z-axis.
  • z_max (scalar) – maximum limit of the Z-axis.

Examples

// Declare plotControl structure
struct plotControl myPlot;

// Initialize plotControl structure
myPlot = plotGetDefaults("surface");

// Set Z-axis to to range from 0 to 10
plotSetZRange(&myPlot, 0, 10);

// Create and plot data using our Z-range
x = seqa(1, 1, 5);
y = seqa(1, 1, 6);

z = { 3 3 2 4 5 4,
      3 3 2 3 4 5,
      4 3 2 2 4 4,
      4 4 3 3 5 6,
      5 6 4 4 6 7 };

plotSurface(myPlot, x', y, z');

Remarks

This function sets an attribute in a plotControl structure. It does not affect an existing graph, or a new graph drawn using the default settings that are accessible from the Tools > Preferences > Graphics menu. See the GAUSS Graphics chapter for more information on the methods available for customizing your graphs.
