graph from array

Recommended Posts


Hello everybody.

I need a function that will produce a graph from a 2D array.

I believe that i am doing pretty well with simple scripts but when i must create a GUI window i suck, therefore i ask

for your help.

I would really appreciate any help provided.

Coding can be fun when you do it your own.

You may want to look at this topic.

The "Search" button is at the top on the right, by the way. ;)

ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs

I would like to apologise if i caused you any disconvinience.

I have allready checked this UDF but i couldn't understand how to import my data so that the graph will be created.

Thanks for your time.

Simple example.

#Include <GDIPlus.au3>
#Include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <Math.au3>
#Include <WinAPI.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Dim $aPoints[300][2]

For $i = 0 To UBound($aPoints) - 1
    $aPoints[$i][0] = ($i - 150) / 1.7
    $aPoints[$i][1] = 20 * Sin($aPoints[$i][0] / 20) * Sin($aPoints[$i][0] / 2)


Func _ViewGraph($aPoints)

    Local $hForm, $Pic, $hPic
    Local $Scale, $Xi, $Yi, $Xp, $Yp, $XOffset, $YOffset, $Xmin = $aPoints[0][0], $Ymin = $aPoints[0][1], $Xmax = $Xmin, $Ymax = $Ymin
    Local $hBitmap, $hObj, $hGraphic, $hImage, $hBrush, $hPen

    For $i = 1 To UBound($aPoints) - 1
        If $aPoints[$i][0] < $Xmin Then
            $Xmin = $aPoints[$i][0]
            If $aPoints[$i][0] > $Xmax Then
                $Xmax = $aPoints[$i][0]
        If $aPoints[$i][1] < $Ymin Then
            $Ymin = $aPoints[$i][1]
            If $aPoints[$i][1] > $Ymax Then
                $Ymax = $aPoints[$i][1]

    $Scale = 600 / _Max($Xmax - $Xmin, $Ymax - $Ymin)
    $XOffset = Floor(($Xmin + $Xmax) * $Scale / 2)
    $YOffset = Floor(($Ymin + $Ymax) * $Scale / 2)

    $hBitmap = _WinAPI_CreateBitmap(601, 601, 1, 32)
    $hImage = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hBitmap)
    $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($hImage)
    $hBrush = _GDIPlus_BrushCreateSolid(0xFFFFFFFF)
    $hPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate(0xFFFF0000)
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsFillRect($hGraphic, 0, 0, 601, 601, $hBrush)
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsSetSmoothingMode($hGraphic, 2)
    If Abs($XOffset) <= 300 Then
        _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawLine($hGraphic, 300 - $XOffset, 0, 300 - $XOffset, 601, $hPen)
    If Abs($YOffset) <= 300 Then
        _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawLine($hGraphic, 0, 300 + $YOffset, 601, 300 + $YOffset, $hPen)
    $hPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate(0xFF000000)
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aPoints) - 1
        $Xi = 300 - $XOffset + $Scale * $aPoints[$i][0]
        $Yi = 300 + $YOffset - $Scale * $aPoints[$i][1]
        If $i Then
            _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawLine($hGraphic, $Xp, $Yp, $Xi, $Yi, $hPen)
        $Xp = $Xi
        $Yp = $Yi
    $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap($hImage)

    $hForm = GUICreate('My Graph', 601, 601)
    $Pic = GUICtrlCreatePic('', 0, 0, 601, 601)
    $hPic = GUICtrlGetHandle(-1)

    _WinAPI_DeleteObject(_SendMessage($hPic, 0x0172, 0, $hBitmap))
    $hObj = _SendMessage($hPic, 0x0173)
    If $hObj <> $hBitmap Then

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hForm)

    Until GUIGetMsg() = -3


EndFunc   ;==>_ViewGraph
