SansGUI currently support two types of data plots from the Result View:
Labeled Series Plot: is a 2-dimensional plot with values from a single logged attribute being used as discrete X-axis labels and multiple logged attribute values being plotted as multiple Y series data.
X-Y Data Plot: is a 2-dimensional X-Y plot with values from one logged attribute being used as X series data and multiple logged attribute values being plotted as Y series data against the X data.
The types of plots depend on a single factor -- what the logged attribute selected for the X-axis is to be used for. If the data series of the logged attribute is to be used as X-axis labels, the Labeled Series Plot type is selected. If the data series of the logged attribute is to be used as X data, the X-Y Data Plot type is selected.
To select a data series in a logged attribute is quite simple -- right click on any cell under the attribute and select Set As Y Data, Set As X Data, or Set As X Labels from the context menu.
Set As Y Data: You can select multiple attributes as Y data series to be plotted. However, it is impractical to select too many Y data series in a plot. When an attribute is set to be for Y data, a [Y] suffix will be displayed in the attribute code at the top header.
Set As X Data: You can only select one attribute for X data. When one is set as X data, an [X] suffix will be displayed in the attribute code at the top header and the X-Y Data Plot type is selected. The other attribute which has been set as X data or set as X label will be cleared.
Set As X Labels: You can only select one attribute for X labels. When one is set as X labels, an [L] suffix will be displayed in the attribute code at the top header and the Labeled Series Plot type is selected. The other attribute which has been set as X labels or set as X data will be cleared.
When multiple Y series data have been selected, those from compatible attributes will be plotted together. This includes a requirement of having the same measuring unit. Data series from incompatible attributes will be plotted in separate sub-charts.
If you need to start from a new plotting specification, select Clear All XY Selections from the same context menu as you select data series. All the X and Y settings will be cleared.
