Description

By using the SymbolStyle() function, each data series can be assigned a separate symbol. Series, which are not explicitly assigned a symbol, are represented in one of the 12 default symbols (argument type between 1 and 12). Presently, a total of 58 symbols are available. An overview of the predefined symbols can be found in Symbols. Series, which are not explicitly assigned a symbol color, are represented in one of the 16 default colors, i.e. SymbolColorScheme(classic).

As an option, characters from a character set can also be used as symbols. The characters are defined by the LabelTexts() und LabelStyle() functions. The LabelOptions() function makes it possible to position the characters precisely.

Symbols can also be displayed when using a bubble chart. By using the PictureStyle() function it is possible to read in pictures from a file or stream and use them as symbols. For more details, refer to Import Images.
