Solution 34835: Storing Graphing Elements on a TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition.

How can I store all the graphing elements on a TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition?

All of the elements that define a particular graph can be stored to a graph database (GDB) on the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition , allowing users to recreate the graph at a later time. A GDB is different than a picture in that a GDB stores the elements that make up the resulting graph, instead of simply the output. The following elements are contained in a GDB:

1) Graphing mode
2) Window variables
3) Format settings
4) Format settings
5) All functions in the Y= editor and the selection status of each
6) Graph style for each Y= function

Users can have up to 10 GDB's stored in the calculator's memory at any given time.

Please Note: GDB's do not contain drawn items or stat plot definitions.

Storing a graph database:

1) Press [2ND] [DRAW] then press the right arrow key twice to select the STO menu.
2) Press 3:StoreGDB.



3) Input the number (0-9) of the GDB variable to which you want to store the graph database.

Please Note: You can also select a variable from the GDB secondary menu by pressing [VARS] [3].

4) Press [ENTER] to store the current database to the specified GDB variable.

Recalling a graph database:

CAUTION: When you recall a GDB, it replaces all existing Y= functions. Consider storing the current Y= functions to another database before recalling a GDB.

1) Press [2ND] [DRAW] then press the right arrow key twice to select the STO menu.
2) Press 4:RecallGDB.



3) Input the number (0-9) of the GDB variable from which you want to recall a graph database.

Please Note: You can also select a variable from the GDB secondary menu by pressing [VARS] [3].

4) Press [ENTER] to replace the current database with the recalled GDB.

Please see the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition guidebook for additional information.
