4.40 FAQ-401 What are X-Functions and how do I create and share them?

Last Update: 7/12/2018

Origin provides a large collection of X-Functions for performing a wide variety of data processing tasks. Many of the X-Functions are accessible from LabTalk script in the Command Window or Script Window to perform data processing.

This access to a large number of data processing functions, combined with the flexible notation to access data, provides a powerful environment for users to create custom script code for their routine tasks. To create X-Functions, please refer to Introduction to X-Functions tutorial. To create a wizard, please see How to Create a Wizard. To share them, you can upload them to the File Exchange area of the OriginLab website.
