8 Plot and Renderer Parameters

 (require plot) package: plot-gui-lib

8.1 Compatibility

parameter

(plot-deprecation-warnings?)  boolean?

(plot-deprecation-warnings? warnings)  void?
  warnings : boolean?
 = #f
When #t, prints a deprecation warning to current-error-port on the first use of mix, line, contour, shade, surface, or a keyword argument of plot or plot3d that exists solely for backward compatibility.

8.2 Output

parameter

(plot-new-window?)  boolean?

(plot-new-window? new-window?)  void?
  new-window? : boolean?
 = #f
When #t, plot and plot3d open a new window for each plot instead of returning an image-snip%.

Users of command-line Racket, which cannot display image snips, should enter
before using plot or plot3d.

parameter

(plot-width)  exact-positive-integer?

(plot-width width)  void?
  width : exact-positive-integer?
 = 400

parameter

(plot-height)  exact-positive-integer?

(plot-height height)  void?
  height : exact-positive-integer?
 = 400
The width and height of a plot, in logical drawing units (e.g. pixels for bitmap plots). Used for default arguments of plotting procedures such as plot and plot3d.

parameter

(plot-jpeg-quality)  (integer-in 0 100)

(plot-jpeg-quality quality)  void?
  quality : (integer-in 0 100)
 = 100
The quality of JPEG images written by plot-file and plot3d-file. See save-file.

parameter

(plot-ps/pdf-interactive?)  boolean?

(plot-ps/pdf-interactive? interactive?)  void?
  interactive? : boolean?
 = #f
If #t, plot-file and plot3d-file open a dialog when writing PostScript or PDF files. See post-script-dc% and pdf-dc%.

8.3 General Appearance

parameter

(plot-aspect-ratio)  (or/c (and/c rational? positive?) #f)

(plot-aspect-ratio ratio)  void?
  ratio : (or/c (and/c rational? positive?) #f)
 = #f
Controls the aspect ratio of the plot area, independently from the width and height of the entire plot.

When the aspect ratio is #f, the plot area fill fill the entire area of the plot, leaving room only for the axis labels and title.

When an aspect ratio is a positive number, the plot area will maintain this aspect ratio, possibly leaving empty areas around the plot.

This feature is useful when the aspect ratio needs to be maintained for the plot output to look correct, for example when plotting a circle:

> (parameterize ([plot-aspect-ratio 1]
                 [plot-background "lightyellow"])
    (plot (polar (lambda (t) 1)) #:width 400 #:height 200))

parameter

(plot-background)  plot-color/c

(plot-background color)  void?
  color : plot-color/c

parameter

(plot-foreground-alpha)  (real-in 0 1)

(plot-foreground-alpha alpha)  void?

 = '(columns 1 equal-size)
Defines the way in which individual entries are placed in the legend. This is a list of three elements:
  • the placement direction ('columns or 'rows)

  • the number of columns or rows

  • whether all the entries will have the same size ('equal-size), or the entries will only occupy the minimum size ('compact)

For example, the value '(columns 1 equal-size) will place the legend entries vertically from top to bottom and all entries will have the same height. A value of '(rows 2 'compact) will place legend entries horizontally on two rows – this type of layout is useful when the legend is placed at the top or bottom of the plot.

Added in version 7.9 of package plot-gui-lib.

parameter

(plot-animating?)  boolean?

(plot-animating? animating?)  void?
  animating? : boolean?
 = #f
When #t, certain renderers draw simplified plots to speed up drawing. Plot sets it to #t, for example, when a user is clicking and dragging a 3D plot to rotate it.

(plot-brush-color-map)  (or/c symbol? #f)

(plot-brush-color-map name)  void?
  name : (or/c symbol? #f)
 = #f
Specify the color maps to be used by ->pen-color and ->brush-color respectively, for converting integer values into RGB triplets, or when integer values are used with the #:color keyword of various plot renderers. You can determine the list of available color map names using color-map-names.

If name is not a valid color map name, the internal color map will be used, this is the same as specifying #f.

When the color map value is set to #f, internal color maps will be used, one for pen and one for brush colors. The internal color map used for pen colors has darker and more saturated colors than the one used for brush colors. These colors are chosen for good pairwise contrast, especially between neighbors and they repeat starting with 128.

The color maps available by default are shown below and additional ones can be added using register-color-map:
