2.3.2.4 Origin Objects

Then there is a set of LabTalk Objects that is so integral to scripting in Origin that we give them a separate name: Origin Objects. These objects are visible in the graphical interface, and will be saved in an Origin project file (.OPJ). Origin Objects are the primary components of your Origin Project. They are the following:

  1. Page (Workbook/Graph Window/Matrix Book) Object
  2. Worksheet Object
  3. Column Object
  4. Layer Object
  5. Matrix Object
  6. Dataset Object
  7. Graphic Object

Except loose datasets, Origin objects can be organized into three hierarchies:

Workbook -> Worksheet -> Column
Matrix Book -> Matrix Sheet -> Matrix Object
Graph Window -> Layer -> Dataplot

In the sections that follow, tables list object methods and examples demonstrate the use of these objects in script.
