The bpc_Dialogs XOP provides some external functions that facilitate writing interactive Igor procedures/functions. While similar functionality could also be achieved to some extend with Igor code, bpc_Dialogs.xop is supposed to make life a little easier, both for the programmer and also for the user. bpc_Dialogs.xop supports 32bit Igor running on 32bit or 64bit windows. It was developed and tested with Igor 6.2. But it uses standard Windows programming techniques, and there is a good chance that the XOP works just fine also with Igor 7.

bpc_Dialogs adds the following functions to Igor:

Last changed: 28 weeks 6 days ago


CommandPanel.ipf provides an alternative command-line interface for Igor Pro.


Create Layouts

Last changed: 8 years 12 weeks ago

A GUI tool that makes creating a new layout easier. This is designed to be a rough replacement for the built in Igor Pro New Page Layout dialog. At this time, however, this is not a complete replacement and is lacking some functionality, including the ability to add tables to the layout. The package allows the user to control the order of the graphs placed on the layout and allows the user to see thumbnail images of the possible graphs and to select them from a list.



Last changed: 8 years 22 weeks ago

An alternative approach to tab control, in part inspired by the Wavemetrics "Extensible Tab Panel Demo" experiment. This approach is used in the Time-Frequency Tookit package.

The impetus for this approach was to get rid of the cumbersome need to keep some sort of database of controls, or to name controls in a particular way, that can make updating controls in a tabbed control panel tedious. The tradeoff is that all control states must be continuously saved in global variables - something that is often desirable in a package complex enough to require tabs anyway.

Easy New Notebook

Last changed: 6 years 40 weeks ago

This provides a hook to the New:Notebook menu procedure. The hook puts up a control panel with more settings than the standard New:Notebook dialog box.


Experiment Preview

Last changed: 4 years 11 weeks ago

The aim of this project is to aid the Igor Pro user in selecting one among many saved experiments. The method is to create a formatted notebook containing currently visible graphs in an open experiment. The notebook is saved under the same name and directory as the experiment. Saved notebooks can be quickly viewed through a panel containing a simple method of selecting a disk path and displaying the names of notebooks residing in that path in a list box. Contents of the notebook are displayed in a notebook subwindow on that panel when the user clicks on a item in the listbox.


Graph Control

Last changed: 1 year 51 weeks ago

The ‘Graph Control’ package is a visualization utility to show the main attributes of Igor graphs and traces.
It allows quick manipulation of trace style, replacement, reordering and editing of selected traces, error bars parameters and easy work with data folders and multiple axes.

HSL/HCL Colour Table Creator with GUI

Last changed: 2 years 46 weeks ago

This package allows the user to easily create their own custom colour tables for use in other Igor plots (either to define colours in image plots, or for colouring traces/data-points).

The interface allows the user to create four distinct types of colour table:

  • Single Hue table
  • Bi-polar (Double Hue) table
  • Multi Hue Category table
  • Hue Blend table

Igor preview generator for OS X

Last changed: 4 years 12 weeks ago

This project will automatically create a preview of a saved Igor experiment by compiling its available windows into a notebook and saving the notebook in a central location and keep track of them with a UUID that matches a generated UUID string stored in the experiment.

The script will list the pxp files in the specified folder (instead of the notebook previews), and when you select one it will access the UUID stored in the pxp and match it to the appropriate preview file (or display "No Preview Available" if a preview has not yet been generated).



Last changed: 7 years 24 weeks ago

Just a small procedure file to use LaTeX under Windows with Igor Notebooks. Quite rudimentary programming, use with care. You might have to twiddle with the source code for pointing the package to your latex BIN directory. Please read the documentation contained in the *.pxp.

NOT useful for MacOS without substantial modifications (the latex.exe call is OS specific).

Tested with 6.12A but originally written for IP5.05A...not sure if it works there still.


Interactive Dartboard

Last changed: 8 years 22 weeks ago

The "interactive dartboard" presents a clickable dartboard to the user. The package is intended to illustrate some programming techniques for writing graphical user interfaces: drawing calculated polygons, using Igor's coordinate systems, using "package" data folders, providing visual and sound feedback in response to user clicks by dint of a hook function.

iPhys is a dual image analysis / electrophysiology acquisition and analysis suite. Readable formats include TIFF image files, text data files and iPhys generated data files. The software was developed with increased automation of basic procedures in mind. For example, the user doesn't need to specify a file name for saving acquisition files, as they are automatically saved into the working directory. The user enjoys an extensive graphical interface with sticky windows (making dragging multiple windows easy), easy to activate and close plots and one click generated complex analysis modules.


IR Shifted-peak fitting

Last changed: 30 weeks 1 day ago

This is a set of routines designed to fit temperature-dependent amide I infrared spectra of proteins and peptides. It has been shown that these peaks are temperature-dependent. The data is fit to a sum of Gaussian peaks, with center position and width of each peak assumed to shift linearly with temperature. In addition, the model allows an equilibrium between peaks, so that each peak may (optionally) increase or decrease in amplitude with temperature. The change in amplitude with temperature is modeled as a two-state equilibrium.

This package provides a panel to allow you to plot non-scaled waves that are paired as sets having a common independent wave (ie, having the form (y1 vs x), (y2 vs x), (y3 vs x), ... , (yn vs x)) without needing to use command line or menu controls.



Last changed: 5 years 41 weeks ago


This provides a control panel to input systematic logbook information in to a notebook, including a header, a graphic (window or picture), notes, and a history reading. It also allows you to execute commands from the note field and capture the history.

Lumencor light driver Panel

Last changed: 2 years 49 weeks ago

The following procedure creates a small, simple panel for controlling a Lumencor light driver:

This was created primarily to use with OS X as the company does not provide software for controlling the light source from a Mac.
Including the procedure during compile adds an item called "Lumencor" in the /Macros menu item.

08/07/14version 2 added colors and incremental changes to intesity

The FTDI USB to Serial driver must be installed on the machine:
The VDT2.xop procedure must be activated.


MATLAB Functions

Last changed: 6 years 50 weeks ago

The biggest barrier to Igor adoption is usually knowledge of another environment's language. One of these is MATLAB. If a MATLAB users sits down to write Igor code, sometimes they have a hard time figuring out what the equivalent function in Igor is the function they know in MATLAB. And even if they find that function, if they haven't programmed in Igor, they might get stuck on the syntax.

Size Distribution Fitting (lognormal) - Wdie-Range Particle Sizer (WPS) Data Processing

Last changed: 5 years 18 weeks ago

This igor procedure is to handle the airborne particle size distribution data measured using Wdie-Range Particle Sizer (WPS), since the original software provided along with the instrument is not very user-friendly.

Starting with a neatly organized panel, all functions are simple and straightforward:
- Load raw data with a single click;
- Automatically obtain major parameters (RH, temperature) and calculate the hourly average; (daily or monthly average will be added in future release)
- Graphing (size distribution, color-coded by number conc.);

Synchronized Windows

Last changed: 6 years 18 weeks ago

Igor supports exterior panels that stick to the target window, but only for graphs and panels.
SyncWin extends this idea to any pair of target windows (also tables, layouts, notebooks).
To use, create two windows and install the link between them using SyncWinInstall().
The following examples are also given in the procedure file.

Example 1:

string myGraph = "MyOtherGraph"
Display /N=$myGraph /W=(300,90,500,190)
Display /N=MyFirstGraph /W=(350,100,550,200)

Example 2:

string myPanel = "Panel0", myTable = "Table0"
