Setting and Retrieving Current Frame Plot Type
Syntax type = tpplottype()
type = tpplottype(type)
See Also tpopen , tpdims , tpmacrostring

Determines and optionally sets the plot type for the current frame. The value type is a character row vector that equals "CARTESIAN2D", "CARTESIAN3D", "XYLINE", "SKETCH", or "POLARLINE". If the type is not given as an argument, the tpplottype function returns the current plot type without changing it.

If you enter,
   print tpplottype()
O-Matrix will echo
which is the default plot type for new frames. If you continue the example by entering
Tecplot will create a contour plot and change the plot type to 3D.
