HistogramOptions ( doCountData ;​ doMoveHigher ;​ doIncludeEnds ;​ frequencyLineOption ;​ sortIndex )

Argument Type Range Default Note
doCountData int 0..1 off

frequencyLineOption int 0..3 none
sortIndex int -10000..10000 0 +/-...asc/dec sort order
Examples

HistogramOptions(on)

HistogramOptions(;​;​;​ogive)

HistogramOptions(on;​;​;​;​-1) /* Sort frequencies of 1st series in descending order. */

Description

As an option, values can also be evaluated without using interval ranges, but solely according to their frequencies. This is made possible by activating the 1st argument doCountData = on. The HistogramRange() function is ignored in this case, just as the arguments doMoveHigher and doIncludeEnds. The HistogramOptions() function should be entered after the Histogram() function.

By using the 2nd argument doMoveHigher, the assignment of the values, which are located exactly on an interval limit, can be controlled. As the default, these "limit values" are assigned to the higher bin (doMoveHigher = on), when doMoveHigher = off they are assigned to the lower bin.

As an option, frequency lines can be added to histograms. As the 4th argument frequencyLineOption, four constants are available for this. The appearance of the frequency lines can be controlled by the LineStyle() function.
