SetPerspective( <Text> )

Changes the layout and visibility of Views. The text parameter is either the full description of the layout, description of a single view you want to change or ID of one of the standard perspectives.

Full layout description

To change the whole layout you can describe the view positions using an expression. Views are represented by variables (letters): the horizontal arrangement of Views is represented by the related letters juxtaposition, and their vertical arrangement by a division symbol /.

Letter View
A Menu view algebra.svg Algebra
B Menu view probability.svg Probability Calculator
C Menu view cas.svg CAS
D Menu view graphics2.svg Graphics 2
G Menu view graphics.svg Graphics
L Menu view construction protocol.svg Construction Protocol
P Menu-options.svg Properties
R Data analysis (Desktop only)
S Menu view spreadsheet.svg Spreadsheet
T Perspectives algebra 3Dgraphics.svg 3D Graphics
Examples:  
  • SetPerspective("G") makes only the Menu view graphics.svg Graphics View visible
  • SetPerspective("AGS") makes Menu view algebra.svg Algebra, Menu view graphics.svg Graphics and Menu view spreadsheet.svg Spreadsheet View visible, aligned horizontally
  • SetPerspective("S/G") makes Menu view spreadsheet.svg Spreadsheet and Menu view graphics.svg Graphics View visible with Spreadsheet on top and Graphics View below
  • SetPerspective("S/(GA)") is similar as above, the bottom part of the screen consists of Menu view graphics.svg Graphics View on the left and Menu view algebra.svg Algebra View on the right


Single view change

To open or close individual Views, add the symbols + or - before the View name (letter), respectively. In apps other than GeoGebra Classic (e.g. the Graphing Calculator) you can also use Tools and Tablefor the tools and table of values.

Examples:  
  • SetPerspective("+D") adds Graphics View 2 to the currently displayed ones, on the right
  • SetPerspective("-D") removes Graphics View 2 from the currently displayed ones
  • SetPerspective("+Tools") opens the sidebar in Graphing Calculator and switches it to tools tab
  • SetPerspective("+Table") opens the sidebar in Graphing Calculator and switches it to table of values
  • SetPerspective("-Tools") closes the sidebar in Graphing Calculater, no matter which tab is selected


Standard perspectives

You may also use a text containing a single digit to use a predefined perspective:

Text Perspective
"1" Algebra And Graphics
"2" Geometry
"3" Spreadsheet
"4" CAS
"5" 3D Graphics
"6" Probability

These roughly correspond to "AG", "G", "SG", "CG", "AT" and "B" respectively, but may also affect the display of Input Bar and content of Toolbar.
