Class: TPlot3D
Declaration: property ScaleFactZ: double;

The property ScaleFactZ  determines the scaling of the z-axis of the surface plot (the length of the z-axis is determined by the minimum and maximum values of the elements of the data matrix GridMat). Please note that the actual size of the axis depends also on the overall size factor  Magnification. By default, ScaleFactZ  is set to 1.0.

Hint 1: Note that the property ScaleFactZ  may be changed by the procedures AutoScale  and Reset.

Hint 2: Changing the property ScaleFactZ  does not affect the actual values of the data matrix, it is merely a scaling factor to adjust the optical appearance of the surface plot. Thus, the color encoding as determined by the properties ColorScaleLow  and ColorScaleHigh  is not affected when changing ScaleFactZ.

Example: This property is used in the following example program (see for downloading the code): plotit3d
