Opening aplets
To open an aplet:
  1. To open the APLET LIBRARY, press LIB
  2. Highlight the applet and press START or ENTER
      note:
    Instead of pressing START, aplets can be viewed immediately by pressing a view key such as PLOT, SYMB, or NUM
Naming aplets
To name an aplet:
  1. To open the APLET LIBRARY, press LIB
  2. Highlight the applet that is going to be named.
  3. Press SAVE and enter a name.
  4. Press OK to confirm the name or CANCL to cancel it.
Creating aplets
New aplets can be created based on existing aplets. To create a new aplet:
  1. Open the applet that is to be started from.
  2. Enter or modify its information (equations, data, settings). This defines the new version of the aplet. All of the information is saved until it is cleared or edited.
  3. To name the aplet for future access, use SAVE in the APLET LIBRARY
Deleting aplets
To delete an aplet:
  1. Open the APLET LIBRARY, highlight the custom (not built-in) aplet to delete.
  2. Press DEL.
      note:
    To delete all custom aplets, press SHIFT, then CLEAR (Built-in aplets cannot be deleted; however, their data can be cleared and their default settings can be reset by pressing RESET)
Clearing an aplet
To clear an applet:
  1. Open the APLET LIBRARY by pressing LIB
  2. Select the desired aplet and press RESET
      note:
    Resetting an aplet clears all data and resets to the default settings.
Sorting the APLET list
To sort the applet list:
  1. In the APLET LIBRARY, press SORT
  2. Select the sorting scheme and press ENTER
The applet sorting scheme supports one of two methods of sorting.
  • Chronological: Produces a chronological order by most recent use of the aplets. (The last-used APLET appears first and so on.)
  • Alphabetical: Produces an alphabetical order by aplet name.
