# xgetech

get the current graphics scale **(obsolete)**

### Syntax

[wrect, frect, logflag, arect] = xgetech()

### Arguments

- wrect, frect
real vectors.

- logflag
string of size 2

`"xy"`

.

### Description

This function is obsolete. It will be removed from Scilab 6.1. Please use
`ax=gca(); (ax.axes_bounds, ax.data_bounds(:)', ax.log_flags, ax.margins)`
or any combination instead. |

`xgetech`

returns the current graphics scale (of
the current window). The rectangle ```
[xmin, ymin, xmax,
ymax]
```

given by `frect`

is the size of the
whole graphics window. The plotting will be made in the region of
the current graphics window specified by `wrect`

.

`wrect=[x, y, w, h]`

(upper-left point, width,
height) describes a region inside the graphics window. The values in
`wrect`

are specified using proportion of the width
and height of the graphics window:

`wrect=[0, 0, 1, 1]`

means that the whole graphics
window is used.

`wrect=[0.5, 0, 0.5, 1]`

means that the graphics
region is the right half of the graphics window.

`logflag`

is a string of size 2
`"xy"`

, where `x`

and
`y`

can be `"n"`

or
`"l"`

. `"n"`

stands for normal (linear) scale and `"l"`

stands for logscale.
`x`

stands for the x-axis and `y`

stands for the y-axis.

`arect = [x_left, x_right, y_up, y_down]`

gives the
frame size inside the subwindow. The graphic frame is specified
(like `wrect`

) using proportion of the width or
height of the current graphic subwindow. Default value is
`1/8*[1,1,1,1]`

. If `arect`

is not
given, current value remains unchanged.

### Examples

// first subwindow xsetech([0,0,1.0,0.5]) plot2d() // then xsetech is used to set the second sub window xsetech([0,0.5,1.0,0.5]) grayplot() // get the graphic scales of first subwindow xsetech([0,0,1.0,0.5]) [wrect,frect,logflag,arect]=xgetech(); // get the graphic scales of second subwindow xsetech([0,0.5,1.0,0.5]) [wrect,frect,logflag,arect]=xgetech();
