The Wireframe object contains the properties of a wireframe map created in Surfer with the Shapes method AddWireframe.

Derived from: Shape object(All methods and properties of Shape apply to this object.)

The following table provides the properties of the WireFrame object:

Example

The following script demonstrates how the Wireframe object is used in reference to the MapFrame object.

Sub Main

 

'Declares SurferApp as an object

Dim SurferApp As Object

 

'Creates an instance of the Surfer Application object and assigns it

'to the variable named "SurferApp"

Set SurferApp = CreateObject("Surfer.Application")

 

'Makes Surfer visible

SurferApp.Visible = True

 

'Declares Plot as an object

Dim Plot As Object

 

'Creates a plot document in Surfer and assigns it to the variable

'named "Plot"

Set Plot = SurferApp.Documents.Add(srfDocPlot)

 

'Declares Shapes as an Object

Dim Shapes As Object

 

'Assigns the Shapes collection to the variable named "Shapes"

Set Shapes = Plot.Shapes

 

'Declares MapFrame as an object

Dim MapFrame As Object

 

'Creates a wireframe and assigns the map coordinate system to the

'variable named "MapFrame"

Set MapFrame = Shapes.AddWireframe(GridFileName:=SurferApp.Path+"\Samples\demogrid.grd")

 

'Declares Wireframe as an object

Dim Wireframe As Object

 

'Assigns the wireframe properties to the variable named

'"Wireframe"

Set Wireframe = MapFrame.Overlays(1)

 

End Sub
