How about: ClearAll[tmp]; tmp[a_] := Plot[Sin[x (1 + a x)], {x, 0, 6}, Frame -> True] Manipulate[tmp[a], {a, 0, 2}] ? David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/index.html From: Physics is Everything....Almost [mailto:fizzycist at knology.net] Why does Manipulate[ Plot[Sin[x (1+ a x)], {x,0,6} ], (a,0,2} ] work.... BUT..... the following doesn't.... tmp = Plot[Sin[x (1+ a x)], {x,0,6} ] Manipulate[ tmp , (a,0,2}] I checked Attributes of Manipulate and saw HoldAll......but Hold what?? thanks.....Jerry Blimbaum
