Vizlib Scatter Chart Properties - Axis Settings

TABLE OF CONTENTS



There are 2 sections for axis settings in Vizlib Scatter Chart. You can find them in the Appearance menu of the property panel (Figure 1), with the name of the measure they've been allocated included in the title.

X-Axis


X-axis settings (Figure 2) allow you to make changes to the way the x-axis in the scatter chart is displayed.


Figure 2: X-Axis


In the X-axis settings you enable the axis display with Show/Hide, hide the axis label with Hide X-axis label, set the X-axis Color, set the X-axis Tick Font Size (the measurement scale the axis uses), and control axis line thickness with Axis Width.

The Label settings allow you to set the X-axis Label Font Size, choose a Font Family, a Font Style, and select Drop Shadow to apply a text shadow effect.

You can use X-axis Ticks to control the number of ticks the axis displays, choose between a linear or logarithmic Scale, control the tick values' numeric display with X-axis Tick Format and enable a Currency Format to set a currency symbol position. 

X-axis range controls the calculation of the range for metrics values, either automatically or entering a minimum or maximum value. 

You can also choose to Hide X-axis Tick Labels, enable min/max smoothing to ensure the axis begins and ends with an appropriate rounded integer value, and choose Display zero reference line to show a zero value. X-Axis Margin controls the scatter chart margin, increasing or decreasing the amount of empty space around the edges of the chart (margins are not available for a Min/Max X-axis range).
