is it possible to delete a polyline added to a simple map plot by
gsn_add_polyline after it was drawn?
I have flight trace data consisting of many segments per flight which I
am animating segment by segment. This is not a problem. The idea now is
to delete the first two segments after drawing 3 segments and further on
to simulate a moving trace part to the end point (like a disappearing
The following snippet will cause an error:
str = unique_string("trace")
if(n .gt. 2) then
trold0 = "trace"+(n-3)
trold1 = "trace"+(n-2)
warning:TransformPostDraw: tfPolyDrawList element 0 is invalid
warning:TransformPostDraw: tfPolyDrawList element 1 is invalid
warning:Attempt to reference attribute (trace1) which is undefined
Due to the huge number of segments I would want to 'switch' the first
segments off, if possible, and not to draw each single plot from scratch
again for each flight .
