Let's give a beter look to this panel:

In the

- the
**title**of the chart which, as seen for the pie chart, is on the top of the chart - the labels that describe
the
**x**and**y**axes of the chart

The opposite happens if it is unchecked.

In the

- the
**background**of the chart - the
**grid**on the chart background (in the example xy line chart it is blue). If grid and background color are the same the grid does not show. - the color given
to the bar or the line of each
**series**. You can change the color of the series clicking on the ... button, which opens the series color dialog.

You can choose bween:

**Texts**: You select a 1-dimensional text matrix (vector) in the**Texts**field, using the matrix selection dialog. This matrix is used to populate the categories/labels for each point of the chart.**By prefix**: if the categories are a lot you can just give a**Prefix**. For example, giving the prefix “Category”, the categories “Category0”, “Category1”, “Category2” ... are generated.

If Step has an integer value different from 1 the chart shows only the categories (labels) that have an index which is multiple of Step. For example, if we choose By Prefix, our Prefix is “Category” and the Step value is 10, only “Category0”, “Category10”, “Category20”... are showed.

Step does not have any influence to the chart values, which are independent from the category labels policy.

In the

**Series Name**used to identify the series in the chart legend**Values**defined by a numerical 1-dimensional matrix (vector) containing the values of the series.- Type is the type of series (line, bar, area...)

To add a new series, you click on the Add button, which opens the Add Simple Data Dialog.

In the

**Name**identifies the series in the chart legend**X**and**Y**are the values that form the <x,y> points of the chart. Y has to be a 1-dimensional numerical matrix (vector), but X can be either a 1-dimensional numerical matrix (vector) or an interval with the same size of the Y vector.- Type is the type of series (line, bar, area...)

The first row has two vectors as X and Y values; the second row has as X values an interval (-4 is the star, 1 is the step so that we have a sequence -4, -3, - 2...).

If both X and Y are matrices, they need to have the same size.

The series can be added, updated, removed and moved up and down in the list, using the buttons at the bottom of the list.

To add a new series click on the Add button at the bottom of the list. It opens the Add XY dialog.

Clicking on the

In the

**Name**to identify the series in the chart legend**X**, which are the times/dates values of the x axis**Y**which are the numerical y values.- Type is the type of series (line, bar, area...)

In the first row X is a date matrix and Y is a numerical matrix.

In the second row X is an interval from the 1

If both X and Y are matrices, they need to have the same size.

The series can be added, updated, removed and moved up and down in the list, using the buttons at the bottom of the list.

To add a new series click on the Add button at the bottom of the list, which opens the Add Time dialog.

Clicking on the

This means that in the category charts the first point of each series is located at the start of the x axis, by the first category label.

Instead in the xy and time charts the series start is related to the location of their x/time values on the x axis, as you can see in the “xy” example.
