### Code to show / hide plots

Posted: 20 Jul 2021
A friend was explaining to me how TOS made enabling and disabling charts really easy. And how it was easier in MC than in TS. Well, this was "This is the sort of thing up with which I could not put." Shout out to Jeremy for being The Unreasonable Man https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/536961 ... reasonable on "enabling plots sucks".

Usage: change plotsToShow and maxPlotCount as needed

Code: Select all

```Inputs: plotsToShow(7), maxPlotCount(3); Variables: j(0), plotDivisor(0), plotsDesired(0), plotsRemaining(0), plotVisible(0); plotsDesired = plotsToShow; plotsRemaining = plotsDesired; for j = maxPlotCount downTo 1 begin // This works on powers of two. // // plot 1 --> 2^1 = 1 // plot 2 --> 2^2 = 2 // plot 3 --> 2^3 = 4 // plot 4 --> 2^4 = 8 // // To display plots, add up the power values // // | plots shown | total | // |-------------+-------| // | 1 | 1 | // | 2 | 2 | // | 3 | 4 | // | 4 | 8 | // | 1, 2 | 3 | // | 1, 3 | 5 | // | 1, 2, 3 | 7 | // | 1, 2, 3, 4 | 15 | // plotDivisor = (power(2, (j - 1))); plotVisible = (plotsRemaining / plotDivisor); if (plotVisible >= 1) then begin plotsRemaining = plotsRemaining - plotDivisor; end else begin noPlot(j); end; end; ```
