DataPool User Guide

Version 2.13 | Published November 30, 2018 ©


DataViz3Script plugin invokes a predefined Viz 3 scripting subroutine or function, with the updated value of its defined data field (DataPool variable) or with a DataPool expression as an argument. In the case of a function, the returned value of the function can be assigned to a DataPool variable.

Note: This plugin exists for Viz 3 only.
