Add Colorbar

Add a colorbar, representing the last colormapped object plotted.

The colormap and range displayed are taken from the colormapped object. For example, if you make a filled contour plot with Filled Contour Plot and the data range from -5 to +5, the colorbar will also range from -5 to +5.

The colorbar is displayed to the right of the axis box, with an optional label. Ticks and tick labels are chosen automatically, but may be overridden if desired.

int32_in int32_out Plot ID/Plot ID Out
Plot identifier. Plot ID Out always contains the same value as Plot ID.
string_in Label
If non-empty, will be used as the axis label for the colorbar.
double_1d_in Ticks
If non-empty, Colorbar axis ticks (in data units). Default is to automatically pick appropriate tick locations.
string_1d_in Tick Labels
If non-empty, labels for the colorbar axis ticks. Only used if Ticks is also provided.
error_in error_out Error In/Out
Terminals for standard error functionality.

Axis Types

This VI supports both rectangular and polar axes.

Other information

If an entry in Ticks is non-finite (NaN or Inf), it will be ignored, along with any matching entry in Tick Labels. If all entries are non-finite, the default automatic ticks will be used. If the sizes of the two arrays don’t match, only the overlapping elements will be used.

If no colormap object is currently displayed, this VI does nothing (and no error is returned).
