How to make series disappear from a graph?

Postby mamo » Thu Jun 01, 2017 6:53 am

Dear Eviews team

occasionally, one may want the make a series disappear from a graph (e.g., you may just graph the whole of a given matrix and subsequently "switch of" one or several columns).

So, when trying something like
a) graph.setelem(1) linepattern(none) symbol(none)
b) graph.setelem(1) symbol(none) linepattern(none)
to make the first element in the graph object disappear I find that this delivers an unexpected result: either line shows up (as in a)), or the symbols are shown (as in b)).

Of course, one could "whiten" the line using
c) graph.setelem(1) linecolor(white)
which would, however, leave white spots where it intersects with another element to be kept showing up in the graph.

Is there a better approach to make an element in an graph object disappear?

In EViews 9 there isn't really a way to do that. In EViews 10 you can select the line and hit delete.
