Use this page of the Properties dialog box to configure the appearance of plots on a graph or chart, such as a waveform chart, XY graph, or feather plot.

This page includes the following components:

Note  Some of the components in this list do not apply to all objects.
  • Plot—Sets the plot you want to configure.
  • Name—Name of the plot. You also can use the Plot Name property to name the plot programmatically.
  • Line Style—Line style of the plot. This option is not available for digital waveform graphs. You also can use the Line Style property to set the line style programmatically.
  • Line Width—Line width of the plot. This option is not available for digital waveform graphs. You also can use the Line Width property to set the width programmatically.
  • Point Style—Point style of the plot. This option is not available for digital waveform graphs. You also can use the Point Style property to set the style programmatically.
  • Plot Interpolation—Interpolation of the plot. This option is not available for digital waveform graphs. You also can use the Plot Interpolation property to specify the interpolation programmatically.
  • Colors—Color and style of the plot line. Select from the following options:
    • Line—Color of the plot line. You also can use the Plot Color property to set the color programmatically.
    • Point/fill—Color of the point and fills. This option is not available for digital waveform graphs. You also can use the Fill/Point Color property to set the color programmatically.
    • Fill to—Sets the baseline of the fill. This option is not available for digital waveform graphs. You also can use the Fill To property to set the baseline programmatically.
  • Y-scale—Sets the y-scale to associate with the plot. This option is not available for digital waveform graphs.
  • X-scale—Sets the x-scale to associate with the plot.
  • Do not use waveform names for plot names—Configures the plot names in the plot legend so they do not adapt to the plot names in the dynamic or waveform data components. Remove the checkmark from this checkbox to configure the plot names to automatically adapt to the dynamic or waveform data components. Place a checkmark in this checkbox if you want to enter a plot name in the Name field or change the plot name programmatically. This checkbox is available only for graphs and charts with dynamic or waveform data.
  • Compass—Select from the following components to specify the appearance of the 2D Compass graph. This option is available only for 2D Compass graphs.
    • Size—Sets the arrow size for the compass. You also can use the Plot Specific:Compass Size property to set the arrow size programmatically.
    • Color—Shows the color of the plot.
    • Show phase scale—Shows the phase scale around the plot area.
  • Feather—Select from the following components to specify the appearance of the Feather graph. This option is available only for 2D Feather graphs.
    • Size—Sets the arrow size for the feather. You also can use the Plot Specific:Feather Size property to set the arrow size programmatically.
    • Color—Shows the color of the plot.
  • Error Bar—Select from the following components to specify the appearance of the 2D Error Bar graph. This option is available only for 2D Error Bar graphs.
  • Error Marker—Select from the following components to specify the appearance of the error marker. This option is available only for 2D Error Bar graphs.
    • Marker Line Style—Specifies the error marker line style, as shown on the shortcut menu from top-left to bottom-right. You also can use the Plot Specific:Marker Line Style property to set the line style programmatically.
    • Marker Line Width—Sets the width of the error marker. You also can use the Plot Specific:Marker Line Width property to set the line width programmatically.
    • Marker color—Sets the color of the error bar line. You also can use the Plot Specific:Marker Line Color property to set the line color programmatically.
    • Size—Sets the symbol size for the error bar. You also can use the Plot Specific:Error Bar Size property to set the symbol size programmatically.
    • Error Mode—Sets whether the error bar displays on the Y axis only or on both X and Y axes. You also can use the Plot Specific:Error Bar Mode property to set the mode programmatically.
