Read and set straight line and arrow format options


LabTalk Object Type:

Utility

The line object is a subobject of the system object. The line object properties allow you to read and set straight line and arrow format options stored in the SYSTEM.CNF file. These properties are set in the user interface through the Object Properties dialog box. Note that setting these properties through script will overwrite the values in SYSTEM.CNF when the Origin session terminates. Note: Changing default arrow characteristics will affect only new objects created with the Arrow tool of the user interface.
