createFunctionSerie - Create a serie based on a formula

This function allow you to create a data serie based on a mathematical formula. It is possible to set extra parameters with the $Option array. To learn more about this please read the Format array guide.

Note that the variable in this formula is named z.


Calling this function
createFunctionSerie($SerieName,$Formula="",$Options="");
Where :

SerieName is the name of the serie to create.
Formula is the mathematical formula to evaluate.
Option is an array containing some extra parameters.


Customisation array - Extra parameters

It is possible to give extra parameters to the evaluation engine. If nothing is provided, the z variable will be evaluated between -10 to +10 with a step of 1.

The range to evaluate can be defined with MinX and MaxX.
The resolution can be set with XStep.
You can name the serie based on the formula setting AutoDescription to TRUE.
You can record an abscissa serie setting RecordAbscissa to TRUE.
You can provide the abscissa serie name with AbscissaSerie.
