Detailed Description

View in nbviewer Open in SWAN Draw color plots using different color palettes.

As only one palette is active, one need to use TExec to be able to display plots using different palettes on the same pad.

When a pad is painted, all its elements are painted in the sequence of Draw calls (See the difference between Draw and Paint in the TPad documentation); for TExec it executes its command - which in the following example sets palette for painting all objects painted afterwards. If in the next pad another TExec changes the palette, it doesn’t affect the previous pad which was already painted, but it will affect the current and those painted later.

The following macro illustrate this feature.
