Calling Sequence

GetPlot(l, lineopts)

GetPlot(p, planeopts)

Parameters

l

-

Line ; Line object defined by Student[MultivariateCalculus]

p

-

Plane ; Plane object defined by Student[MultivariateCalculus]

lineopts, planeopts

-

(optional) equations controlling the look of the plot

Options

• 

The following options, indicated with lineopts in the calling sequence above, can be used when graphing a Line object:

– 

parameter = name

  

The variable used in the vector form of the equation of a line. This is used for creating the caption. The default value is the value supplied when the Line object was created, or t when no such value was supplied.

– 

lineoptions = list

  

A list of plot options applied when constructing the graph for the line.  For more information on plot options, see plot3d,options and plot,options.

– 

pointoptions = list

  

A list of plot options applied when constructing the graph for a point on the line.  For more information on plot options, see plot3d,options and plot,options.

– 

vectoroptions = list

  

A list of options applied when constructing the arrow. These are passed to the plots[arrow] command, so they can be general plot options (explained at plot3d,options and plot,options) or options specific to plots[arrow].

– 

plotoptions = list

  

A list of plot options applied to all parts of the graph.  For more information on plot options, see plot3d,options and plot,options.

– 

showline = true or false

  

Whether the line is shown in the graph.  Default is true.

– 

showvector = true or false

  

Whether the direction vector is shown in the graph (using an arrow).  Default is true.

– 

showpoint = true or false

  

Whether a point on the line is shown in the graph.  Default is true.

– 

caption = string

  

A caption for the graph.  It can be disabled by supplying the empty string, , as the caption, using the option caption=.

 

• 

The following options, indicated with planeopts in the calling sequence above, can be used when graphing a Plane object:

– 

planeoptions = list

  

A list of plot options applied when constructing the graph for the plane.  For more information on plot options, see plot3d,options.

– 

pointoptions = list

  

A list of plot options applied when constructing the graph for a point on the plane.  For more information on plot options, see plot3d,options.

– 

normaloptions = list

  

A list of options applied when constructing the arrow. These are passed to the plots[arrow] command, so they can be general plot options (explained at plot3d,options) or options specific to plots[arrow].

– 

plotoptions = list

  

A list of plot options applied to all parts of the graph.  For more information on plot options, see plot3d,options.

– 

showplane = true or false

  

Whether the plane is shown in the graph.  Default is true.

– 

showpoint = true or false

  

Whether the point is shown in the graph.  Default is true.

– 

shownormal = true or false

  

Whether the normal vector is shown in the graph. Default is true.

– 

caption = string

  

A caption for the graph.  It can be disabled by supplying the empty string, , as the caption, using the option caption=.

Description

• 

The GetPlot command generates a graph of Line and Plane objects and their various characteristics.  For Line objects, a point on the line and the direction vector are included by default.  For Plane objects, a point on the plane and the normal vector are included by default.

GetPlotl1

GetPlotl1,'caption'=My first line

GetPlotl1,'vectoroptions'='width'=12,'shape'='harpoon','color'='red','lineoptions'='color'='green','showpoint'='false'

Compatibility

• 

The Student[MultivariateCalculus][GetPlot] command was introduced in Maple 17.
