[McIDAS #IND-391015]: MCIDAS BATCH Files



Hi Paul,

Ah Ha!

re:
> I had done the MCPATH correctly! Thanks!

Excellent!

re:
> A few other questions: WWDISP - can I set the label color on the top?

I just checked the code, and the color level used is hardwired to be '5'.  
Exactly
what color level '5' is depends on the graphics table that is being used.
In the default graphics table (GRAPHICS.GRX), color level '5' is red.  If
you want to change this, create a new graphics table and restore it to the
frame.  For instance:

ERASE
IMGDISP NEXRCOMP/1KN0R-NAT LINELE=1500 2368 PLACE=C MAG=-5 -5 EU=BREF24 SF=YES 
BAND= X REFRESH='MAP FILE=OUTVHPOL MCOLOR=1 WIDTH=1 GRA=(GRA);BAR (GRA) SU=X X 
COL=7 ORIENT=VER'
WWDISP OLAY
GU MAKE 5 WHITE

The last line will turn the red label to white.  If you always want to use the
same color scheme, save the modified graphics color table to a new one:

GU SAVE WWDISP

Make sure to remember to load this color table in the display sequence:

ERASE
GU REST WWDISP
IMGDISP NEXRCOMP/1KN0R-NAT LINELE=1500 2368 PLACE=C MAG=-5 -5 EU=BREF24 SF=YES 
BAND= X REFRESH='MAP FILE=OUTVHPOL MCOLOR=1 WIDTH=1 GRA=(GRA);BAR (GRA) SU=X X 
COL=7 ORIENT=VER'
WWDISP OLAY

Yes.  The FILl= keyword for WWDISP should allow you to do what you want.

run:

HELP WWDISP

to get a listing of the HELP for WWDISP.  Or, you can look up WWDISP in the
Unidata McIDAS Users Guide:

OK.  Are you using the WSI NEXRAD composites?

Cheers,
