AHELP for CIAO 4.10 ChIPS v1


Context: contours


Delete the specified contour.




The function arguments.

Argument Description
id A ChipsId structure identifying the item, or a string containing the name of the object.

If no argument is given then the current contour is deleted, otherwise the argument determines what to delete.


Example 1

chips> add_contour([[1,1,1], [1,3,1], [1,1,1]], 3,3)
chips> delete_contour()

Create a contour, then delete it.

Example 2

chips> id = ChipsId()
chips> add_contour([[1,1,1], [1,3,1], [1,1,1]], 3,3,
chips> add_contour([1,2,5,3,3,6,0,0,1],3,3)
chips> id.contour = "levels"
chips> delete_contour(id)

Two contours are created; the second contour is current after it is created. The id.contour command sets the contour value of the ChipsId structure to the first contour. That contour is then deleted.

Example 3

chips> add_contour([[1,1,1], [1,3,1], [1,1,1]], 3,3,
[1.1,1.5,2,2.5],'color=lime style=solid')
chips> add_contour([1,2,5,3,3,6,0,0,1],3,3)
chips> delete_contour("all")

Two contours are created, then the delete_contour command deletes them both.
