Returns TRUE and maps the XY location on a graph to the owning pane coordinates. If you do not specify the scales, LabVIEW uses the active or current scales. This method is useful when you need to map graph coordinates to plot image coordinates to draw images inside the plot area of a graph.

This method adjusts only the left and top plot bounds to orient the plot around the origin of the owning pane.
