AHELP for CIAO 4.9 ChIPS v1


Context: plots


Hide the specified plot.




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

Example 1

chips> add_plot()
chips> hide_plot()

Create a plot, then hide it.

Example 2

chips> add_plot(.1, .1, .5, .5, "id=obs2464")
chips> add_plot(.5, .5, .9, .9,"id=obs2463")
chips> id = ChipsId()
chips> id.plot = "obs2464"
chips> hide_plot(id)

Two plots are created; the second plot is current after it is created. The id.plot command sets the plot value of the ChipsId structure to the first plot. That plot is then hidden.

Example 3

chips> add_plot(.1, .1, .5, .5,"id=obs2464")
chips> add_plot(.5, .5, .9, .9,"id=obs2463")
chips> hide_plot("all")

Two plots are created, then the hide_plot command hides them both.
