Defining dynamic limit for a list plot

Helly everybody,

I will try to keep this as simple as possible.

  1. I have a function which looks like this:

    Min[T_, E_, D_] := Module[ ..... List = {...} ];
    

In any case this function gives me a list that looks like this {1,2, 1, 4,5, 2,1} etc. (Actually D determines the number of entries in this list)

  1. I use Listplot to plot this list.

    ListPlot[Min[T, E, D], PlotRange -> {Automatic, {0,  0.5}}]
    
  2. I use Manipulate to be able to manipulate any of these 3 Variables.

    Manipulate[ListPlot[Min[...], {T, 1, 20}, {D, 10, 20}, {E, 1, 20}]
    

    Everything worked perfectly and dandy, but I ran into one problem. E has a dynamic limit that changes when I change D or T and few other factors.

  3. So in order to be able to calculate the dynamic limit ofE, I had to write a few new lines in the old Min.

    So now it looks something like this:

    Min[T_, E_, D_] := 
      Module[Emax = T + D  + a; List = {...}];   
    

    where a is a variable only used in that function

Even though Emax is getting calculated correctly, I just cannot use it outside of the function.

When I plug it into the Manipulate stuff like this:

ListPlot[Min[...], {T, 1, 20}, {D, 10, 20}, {E, 1, Emax}] 

the code does not know what Emax is.

Any ideas what I can do?

I need to use a variable from inside a function as limit for a Manipulate.
