Note that this pattern can't be set via the Pattern menu, but only via action code or Info view. Rather it is set via manual editing of the $Pattern attribute or via actions, rules, etc., acting upon it. This pattern is only available for use in container plots and has no visual effect if applied to other objects.
xyplot( xValuesSource, yValuesSouce [,yMin,yMax] )
New to v5.9.0, the graph is drawn in the form of a Cartesian graph of the container's immediate children. xValuesSource and yValuesSource are expressions, evaluated in turn of each child and are normally attribute values in the simplest forma of use. Thus:
will plot $Date (ascending Date type order) on the X-axis of the container plot and $Price (ascending Number data type) on the Y-axis.
By comparison with plot():
is equivalent to
Thus if using an non-outline order related attribute for xValuesSource, consider either showing xValuesSource and yValuesSource as a $TableExpression or sorting the plot's container on xValuesSource.
Optionally, a yMin and/or a yMax may be specified to lessen expansion of the Y-axis; otherwise, the Y-axis plots from the lowest value of yValuesSource for the container's child notes, to the highest value. The X-axis automatically starts at the lowest xValueSource and runs to the highest xValueSource.
