AHELP for CIAO 4.10 ChIPS v1


Context: curves


Hide the specified curve.




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 curve is hidden, otherwise the argument determines what to hide. Note that this does not delete anything; use the display_curve command to make the items visible again.


Example 1

chips> add_curve([-23,4,15], [10,8,11])
chips> hide_curve()

Create a curve, then hide it.

Example 2

chips> add_curve([-4,0,4], [0,5,10], "id=diag")
chips> x = np.arange(-4, 4)
chips> add_curve(x, x**2, "id=parabola")
chips> hide_curve("diag")

In order to hide the first curve, we need to specify the name of the curve in the hide_curve() call, since the 'parabola' curve is current. This can be done as above, by using just the name, or by using a ChipsId structure:

chips> id = ChipsId()
chips> id.curve = "diag"
chips> hide_curve(id)

Example 3

chips> add_curve([-4,0,4], [0,5,10])
chips> x = np.arange(-4, 4)
chips> add_curve(x, x**2)
chips> hide_curve("all")

Two curves are created, then the hide_curve command hides them both.
