AHELP for CIAO 4.9 ChIPS v1


Context: contours


Display 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 shown, otherwise the argument determines what to show.

Example 1

chips> add_contour([[1,1,1], [1,3,1], [1,1,1]], 3,3)
chips> hide_contour()
chips> display_contour()

Create a contour and hide it, then display the current contour.

Example 2

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

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> hide_contour("all")
chips> display_contour("all")

Two contours are created and hidden, then the display_contour command displays them both.
