8.3.4.2.1 The (2D Parametric Function Plot) Function TabPDDialog2DParaFuncTab
Parameter
Parameter
Specify the parameter.
Points
Specify the number of data points to display in the function plot.
From and To
Specify the beginning and ending of the parameter range.
X(t) and Y(t)
Enter the X and Y parameter formula here.
Common mathematical and statistical distribution functions are available by clicking the triangle button to the right of the X(t) and Y(t) text boxes. For detailed information about these functions, please read buildin LabTalk functions.
In addition, you can type a function directly in the text box using any operators recognized by Origin. For multiplication, you must include the multiplication operator (*). You can also call any of the Origin's builtin functions, even though they are not available from the triangle button flyout menu, or from any functions that you have defined.
If you click the Showinseparatewindow button under the triangle button, a new Y(x)= dialog with a wider input box and a Preview panel will open. The preview panel shows a column calculated from the formula you defined. You can check the result and edit the formula in the input box if needed.
Definition
Define names and values of variables. These variables can be used in function definition. If a variable is not defined yet but is used in function body, it will be highlighted in red.
Show LabTalk Script
Select this check box to define variables using LabTalk scripts. If you have already defined some variables in the Definition table, select this check box to show the LabTalk script equivalents of these definitions.
In addition to builtin functions or userdefined functions, any LabTalk scripts are supported here. You can use range variables, string variables, loops, and LabTalkaccessible XFunctions. Scripts entered here will be run before the formula definition.
 There is a quick way to load a conditional control or loop script when you are doing script in Before Formula Script box. Right click on Before Formula Script box to select Conditional/Loop at the bottom of the context menu, and then select a conditional structure or loop you desired in the flyout. The syntax will be added at cursor with simple comments.

Output Function plot
The dropdown option list on the bottomleft corner is used to specify how to output the function plot curve, Create New Graph, Add to Active Graph or Add to Active Graph and Rescale.
Note: This checkbox is only available when a 2D Graph window is active. If the active window is not a 2D Graph window, it will create the 2D Function plot in a new graph window.
