Composite resources

The DocumentWorkstation object class has no composite class members.

Superclass resources

You can set all resources defined by the superclasses of the DocumentWorkstation object class, including:


Description

The DocumentWorkstation object is derived from the Workstation class and thus inherits all of the color map management and control functions associated with the Workstation class.


Support functions

The DocumentWorkstation object does not define any support functions; it inherits all the support functions available to its superclass.

Status

Experimental. Only postscript and PDF formats are supported. New in NCL 5.2.0.
