How can I plot two plots on a single graph and edit the plot properties via Grapher automation?

This article contains a sample script for creating two line/scatter plots on the same graph and altering the properties of one.

To run this script:

  1. Copy the script below, or click here to download the BAS file: Two Line Plot Graph.BAS.
  2. In a Windows Explorer window, navigate to C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Grapher 12\Scripter.
  3. Double click on Scripter.exe to launch Scripter.
  4. Press Ctrl+A to select all of the existing lines then press Delete.
  5. If you copied this script, press Ctrl+V to paste it into Scripter. If you downloaded it, click File | Open, select the BAS file from your downloads directory, and click Open.
  6. Click Script | Run to run the script.


Sub Main

 Dim GrapherApp As Object
 Set GrapherApp = CreateObject("Grapher.Application")
 GrapherApp.Visible = True
 Dim Plot As Object

 Set Plot = GrapherApp.Documents.Add(grfPlotDoc)
 Dim Shapes As Object
 Set Shapes = Plot.Shapes

 Dim LinePlot As Object
 Set LinePlot = Shapes.AddLinePlotGraph(GrapherApp.Path+"\samples\tutorial.dat")

 LinePlot.AddLinePlot(GrapherApp.Path+"\samples\tutorial.dat", 1, 3)

 Dim ScatterPlot As Object
 Set ScatterPlot = LinePlot.Plots.Item(1)

ScatterPlot.symbolFreq = 1
ScatterPlot.symbol.Index = 38
ScatterPlot.symbol.size = 0.35
ScatterPlot.symbol.color = RGB(255,0,0)
ScatterPlot.symbol.lineColor = grfColorBlue"invisible")

End Sub
