## Re: how to delete a graphic script in a plot

Yes, Remove Graphics Script is new for JMP 10.  For prior releases, you can build a user-defined function containing the graphics script, then reinitialize the function and send the Reshow message to the FrameBox to update the screen.  Here is an example:

`dt = Open( "\$SAMPLE_DATA\Big Class.jmp" );_dist = Distribution(     Stack( 1 ),     Continuous Distribution(          Column( :height ),          Quantiles( 0 ),          Moments( 0 ),          Horizontal Layout( 1 ),          Vertical( 0 )     ));_rdist = _dist << Report;_histframe = _rdist["height"][framebox( 2 )];curve = Function( {},  // make a function holding the old drawing code     mu = 62.55;     sigma = 4.24;     Y Function( Sqrt( 2 * Pi() ) * Normal Density( (x - mu) / sigma ) * 0.095 + 0, x ););_histframe << Add Graphics Script(     Description( "NormalPDF" ),     curve() // call the function holding the old code);/* how do I remove the graphics script?*/Wait( 2 );  //For demonstration purposes onlycurve = Function( {}, {} );_histframe << reshow;Wait( 2 );  //For demonstration purposes only// put the script backcurve = Function( {},  // make a function holding the old drawing code     mu = 62.55;     sigma = 4.24;     Y Function( Sqrt( 2 * Pi() ) * Normal Density( (x - mu) / sigma ) * 0.095 + 0, x ););_histframe << reshow;`

I hope that helps!

You can send << remove graphics script(n) to the approprate displaybox, where n is the order of the script (I think the last added script gets n = 1).

An example:

nw = New Window( "Example",

exx = 20,

exy = 50;

Graph Box( Frame Size( 200, 200 ), Circle( {0, 0}, Sqrt( exx * exx + exy * exy ) ) );

);

fb = nw[Framebox( 1 )];

Mousetrap(

exx = x;

exy = y;

)

);

fb << remove graphics script( 1 );

The example script works for me in JMP 10 (Mac). But I now tried it in JMP 9.0.3 and it does not work, i.e. the last line has no effect. Seems like the remove graphics script() message is new.

What version do you use?
