(DEPRECATED) Display plots of variables and responses




  • Alias: None

  • Arguments: None

  • Default: graphics off


Activate Dakota’s legacy X Windows-based graphics feature. Dakota plotting and visualization capabilities are increasingly available in the Dakota graphical user interface (GUI); see the Dakota GUI User Manual in the documentation section of the Dakota website for additional details.

The graphics flag activates a 2D graphics window containing history plots for the variables and response functions in the study. This window is updated approximately every two seconds. Some study types such as surrogate-based optimization or local reliability specialize the use of the graphics window.

There is no dependence between the graphics flag and the tabular_data flag; they may be used independently or concurrently.
