3.7.5.72 System.Grid

LabTalk Object Type:

Utility

The grid object is a sub-object of the system object. The grid object properties allow you to read and alter grid-related settings which are set in the OPTION.CNF file. These settings can also be accessed in the Options dialog box.


Note on these grid-related properties

These grid-related properties only affect graph windows that are not created from a template. If a graph window is created from a template, the template properties take precedence over the grid object properties.
