11.52.21 display

set [no]display

By default, whenever an item is added to a multiplot canvas, or an existing item is moved or replotted, the whole multiplot is redrawn to reflect the change. This can be a time-consuming process when constructing large and complex multiplot canvases, as fresh output is produced at each step. For this reason, the set nodisplay command is provided, which stops Pyxplot from producing any graphical output. The set display command can subsequently be issued to return to normal behaviour. Scripts which produces large and complex multiplot canvases are typically wrapped as follows:

set nodisplay
set display
