Data Markers

Data Markers are numeric values placed next to their respective chart graphics. Percentages and average values can include precision with zero to 3 decimal places. The number of decimal places is set with the decimal spinner on the Table tab.

Use Transparent Background

If Transparent Background is False, the numeric values are displayed with a black font on a white background. If Use Transparent Background is checked, the marker background color matches the chart background color. With a pie chart, the software determines if the numeric value is displayed in a white or black font color.

Use Legend Symbol with Value

The dollar ($), Euro(€), Percent(%), or Pound() symbol can be optionally displayed next to the data marker values.

Chart Grid Lines

Grid lines can be drawn in either horizontal, vertical, or both directions. Selecting 'None' clears the chart graph of all interior grid lines. The grid lines can be drawn with a dot, dash, dashdot, dashdotdot, and solid pattern. The grid lines will not be displayed if 'Clear' is selected.

Bar Charts

When a single series is graphed, each bar of a bar chart can use the same single color, or rotate from 16 preselected colors. If checked, all bars will use the same color. The color is chosen from the color combo box. If unchecked, each bar of a bar chart will use a different color. Even though pie charts use a single series of data, each data value will be represented by different colors. This option is ignored when multiple series and cross-tabulation charts are displayed.

Bar Width

The number of data points in a series determines the maximum width available for the bars. This spinner determines what percent of the maximum width is used the bars. If multiple series of data are used to create the graphs, the maximum width is divided equally among all related data points. A bar width of 100% creates a histogram chart with no spacing between the categories.

Line Charts

Graph Lines connecting the data points can be drawn with a dot, dash, dashdot, dashdotdot, and solid pattern. The graph lines will not be displayed if 'Clear' is selected. The width of the graph lines can be varied from 1 to 3 pixels. Up to 15 lines can be drawn before the line colors are repeated. Points on the lines use the Point styles (circle, diamond, square, triangle, and reversed triangle).

Point Charts

Five styles of points (circle, diamond, square, triangle, and reversed triangle) are placed on the graph to indicate point locations. Points will not be displayed if 'None' is selected. The size of the points can be varied from 2 to 10 pixels. If more than 5 series of data are plotted, the point types are repeated. Point charts are also called scatter charts.
