gropt

Mapdl.gropt(lab='', key='', **kwargs)

Sets various line graph display options.

APDL Command: /GROPT

Parameters
lab

Apply display style as selected from the following labels:

AXDV - Axis division (tick) marks (defaults to KEY = ON).

AXNM - Axis scale numbers (defaults to KEY = ON, which puts numbers at the back plane

of the graph). If KEY = FRONT, numbers are on the front plane of the graph.

AXNSC - Axis number size scale factor. Input the scale value for KEY (defaults to

1.0).

ASCAL - Automatic scaling of additional Y-axes for multi-curve [/GRTYP, 2 or 3] graphs

(defaults to KEY = ON). If KEY = OFF, use base Y-axis scaling (see the /YRANGE command).

LOGX - Log X scale (defaults to KEY = OFF (linear)).

LOGY - Log Y scale (applies only to the base Y axis) (defaults to KEY = OFF (linear)).

FILL - Color fill areas under curves (defaults to KEY = OFF).

CGRID - Superimpose background grid [/GRID] over areas under filled curves (defaults to

KEY = OFF).

DIG1 - Number of significant digits before decimal point for axis values. Input the

value for KEY (defaults to 4).

DIG2 - Number of significant digits after decimal point for axis values. Input the

value for KEY (defaults to 3).

VIEW - View key for graph displays (defaults to KEY = OFF, in which case the view is

(0,0,1) for 2-D graph displays or (1,2,3) for 3-D graph displays). If KEY = ON, the view settings for graph displays are the same as the view settings for the model.

REVX - Plots the values on the X-axis in reverse order.

REVY - Plots the values on the Y-axis in reverse order.

DIVX - Determines the number of divisions (grid markers) that will be plotted on the X

axis.

DIVY - Determines the number of divisions (grid markers) that will be plotted on the Y

axis.

LTYP - Determines whether ANSYS generated (KEY = 1) or system derived (KEY = 0) fonts

will be used for the axis labels.

CURL - Determines the position of the curve labels. If (KEY = 1), the curve label will

be plotted in the legend column, and the label will be displayed in the same color as the curve. If (KEY = 0) the curve labels will be plotted near the curve. (default).

XAXO - When you use this label, the subsequent KEY value will determine an offset

amount from the default (along the bottom) location for the X axis. If KEY = 1.0, a full offset occurs (the X axis is moved to the top of the graph). If KEY = 0.5, the axis is offset to the midpoint of the graph, and if KEY = 0 the axis remains in the original position, along the bottom of the graph. For any offset, a grey copy of the original axis (containing the axis numbering) remains at the original location.

YAXO - When you use this label, the subsequent KEY value will determine an offset

amount from the default (along the left side of the graph) location for the Y axis. If KEY = 1.0, a full offset occurs (the Y axis is moved to the right side of the graph). If KEY = 0.5, the axis is offset to the midpoint of the graph, and if KEY = 0 the axis remains in the original position, along the left side of the graph. For any offset, a gray copy of the original axis (containing the axis numbering) remains at the original location.

key

Option values:

OFF (0) - Do not apply selected style.

ON (1) - Apply selected style.

nnnn - If Lab is DIG1 or DIG2, input the number of digits.

nn - If Lab is AXNSC, input the scale factor.

FRONT - If Lab is AXNM, FRONT may also be input.

Ndiv - If Lab is DIVX or DIVY, determines the number of divisions (1-99) that will be

applied to the axis.

Kfont - If Lab is LTYP, Kfont is ON (1) or OFF(0). ON will use ANSYS generated fonts

for the axis labels, while OFF will use SYSTEM (Windows, X-system, etc.) fonts. The default value is ON (ANSYS fonts).

Notes

Sets various line graph display options. Issue /GROPT,STAT to display the current settings. Issue /GROPT,DEFA to reset the default specifications. ANSYS informs you that graph view manipulation is inactive unless you have issued the /GROPT,VIEW,ON command. See the /AXLAB, /GRTYP, /GRID, and /GTHK commands for other graph control options.

Automatic scaling using the /XRANGE and /YRANGE commands will often yield inappropriate range values for logarithmic scales (/GROPT, LOGX or /GROPT, LOGY).

This command is valid in any processor.
