Resource: draw

Resource draw
Command Line -dr=value[,value...]
Environment Variable wxpdraw
Default Value all

The draw resource is used to toggle on and off various parts of the plot.   The plot contains two basic regions. The text label areas above and below the plot and the plot itself.  The text labels can appear in six regions around the plot, left, center and right. The plot contains a background map or grid and the data plotted as text, symbols or contours. There is a plot border which is a rectangle surrounding the plot. The other possibility is the radar summary which is separate from data. There are these possible options for draw:

  • text - The text labels above and below the plot (all labels and border)
  • text_ul - The text label in the upper left
  • text_uc - The text label in the upper center
  • text_ur - The text label in the upper right
  • text_ll - The text label in the lower left
  • text_lc - The text label in the lower center
  • text_lr - The text label in the lower right
  • bord - The plot border
  • map - The background map
  • grid - The background grid (synonymous with map)
  • data - The data plotted as text, symbols or contours
  • sum - The radar summary
  • all - All of the above
  • none - No graphics generated

By default, all draw types are turned on. If any of the above are specified, all types are turned off and only those types listed will be turned on. For example, if the data and map are needed but no text labels, specify:

-dr=map,data

Draw types can be added and removed by putting a "+" or "-" in front of the draw type.  If this is done, the types are not turned off initially.  For example, if only the upper right label and border  is to be removed, specify:

-dr=-text_ur,-bord
