A.4.5.35 YErrors Form

The YErrors form (), available from the XYArray Layer Control, draws a set of symmetric or asymmetric vertical error bars representing all the elements of X, Y array-valued coordinates, resulting in a sequence of error bars for each table row.

The configuration options are:

Shading Mode
See Appendix A.4.6.
Y Positive Errors
Y Negative Errors
Array values giving vertical error extents corresponding to the plotted data position arrays. If both positive and negative values are filled in, the errors will be asymmetric. If the negative value is blank (either because the coordinate is not filled in, or because its value is NaN for that row), the error bars will be symmetric, i.e. the negative error bar will be the same size as the positive one. If you want to ensure only a positive error bar is plotted, supply zero for the corresponding negative errors. The error extents must be positive; negative array elements are ignored.

The column names or expressions used here must be array values, matching the length of the data array values. If you need to create or manipulate array values, the functions in the Arrays class may be of use here.

Error Bar
Error bar shape from a list of options.
Thickness
Controls the line thickness used when drawing error bars.
