ncl_idsetr man page

IDSETR — Provides a new real value for a Bivar parameter.



C-Binding Synopsis

#include <ncarg/ncargC.h>

void c_idsetr (char *pnam, float rval)


(an input constant or variable of type CHARACTER) - The name of the parameter that you want to set. The character string can be of any length, but only the first two characters of it will be examined.
(an input expression of type REAL) - The real value you select for the parameter. If the parameter is of type REAL, it will be given the value RVAL; if is is of type INTEGER, it will be given the value INT(RVAL).

C-Binding Description

The C-binding argument descriptions are the same as the FORTRAN argument descriptions.


This routine allows you to set the current value of Bivar parameters. For a complete list of parameters available in this utility, see the bivar_params man page.


To use IDSETR or c_idsetr, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c, preferably in that order.


See the bivar man page for a description of all Bivar error messages and/or informational messages.
