file import, file export, and data manipulation. The plugin examples (147Kb)
include both a file import plugin and a plugin to perform a simple task on existing data (in this case

- Other Products
- We also offer two free, scaled-down versions of DPlot. Please note: Neither of these is intended to be
a standalone graphing program. For that, please check out the full version trial.
DPlot Jr is intended
for software developers interested in a no-cost solution to plotting output from their own applications.
If you produce graphs with DPlot (or DPlot Jr) and would like to distribute those graphs to others,
DPlot Viewer is the solution you are looking for. DPlot Viewer may be freely
distributed. It will display or print any graph produced with DPlot.
- DLL Interface
- DPLOTLIB.DLL includes a single function that may be called from virtually any language to plot your program's
output using either DPlot or DPlot Jr. Examples with source code for 32-bit C, C#, FORTRAN, Visual Basic,
PowerBasic, FreeBASIC, Visual Basic .NET, and Delphi, and 64-bit C, C#, and VB.NET are provided with the DLL
(2401Kb, 17 May 2013). Everything included in this package is also included in the distributions for the full version of DPlot and DPlot Jr.
It is mentioned here as a convenience. Extract dplotlib.zip to the folder of your choice and run any of the example programs, then
take a look at the source code to see just how easy this is. See the included DPLOTLIB documentation (dplotlib.chm in the \docs folder
for more information.
- Visual Basic runtimes
- The Visual Basic runtime files necessary to run the VB demo programs have been
intentionally left out to keep the download size as small as possible. If you are interested in the
VB demos and do not have Visual Basic 5 or 6 installed, you'll need the
Visual Basic runtime files. Save vbdemo_setup.exe to a temporary folder on your
hard disk and run it (double-click on the filename in Explorer or click the Windows Start button,
click Run, then type "[d:\path\]vbdemo_setup.exe", where [d:\path\] is the
folder where you saved this file.
"I was looking for a plotting program that offered tripartite plots and found DPlot. It has exceeded my expectations
in capability, user-friendliness, the general polish of the program and the appearance of the output. I will be
making a presentation at an international engineering conference this fall. Thanks to DPlot, not only will the
appearance of the presentation be better, but it has saved me so much time that I will be able to report on a
larger scope of research as well."
