Numeric Line Graph Settings

Numeric Line Graphs differ from the standard line graph in that they have a numeric X axis, rather than one based upon time.

They are commonly used in both scientific and financial scenarios to show trends in functions that are based on two numeric inputs (X and Y).

Common uses include the display of Yield Curves.

Numeric Line Graphs can also be used to display selected cuts through a Surface Plot.

The numeric line graph settings pane is displayed after clicking the Options  button.




Line Width

Specifies the width in pixels of the lines.

Point Radius

Specifies the radius of each point in pixels that the line passes through.

 Shade Area Below Line

Shade Area Alpha (%)

Specifies the alpha (transparency) of the shaded area, expressed in percent 0-100 of the alpha value currently set on the line.
