# Data series settings

In this window you can set the plotting options for each of the data series separately. The window contains a table with 5 columns. Each row in the table corresponds to a data series and each column corresponds to a data series parameter. The advanced options let you display of hide several data series with just a single click.

**This manual refers to LiveGraph version 1.1.X.**

While version 2.0.X is similar in general, there are several key improvements.

We are working on the manual for version 2.0.X. and will make it available as soon as possible.

## Show

In this column you can specify whether a data series should be plotted at all.

## Label

In this column you can see the label (heading) of the data series as specified in the data file. This column is read-only.

## Colour

In this column you can specify which colour will be used for plotting a data series. Click on a coloured rectangle in this column to specify a new colour.

## Transformation

In this column you can specify a transformation to be applied to the values of a data series before plotting.

The option "**Actual value**" will cause the data values of the series to be plotted without any alterations.

The option "**Transformed into [1...0]**" will cause all values of the data series to be linearly transformed into the interval [1...0]. This means that the function t(`y`) = `fy` + `s` will be applied to each value `y` of the series, where `f` and `s` are such that min( f(`y`) ) = 0 and max( f(`y`) ) = 1. This option can be extremely handy when comparing two data series on different scales.

The option "**Scaled by specified value**" will cause all values of the data series to be linearly scaled by the value specified in the column "Scale factor ". This means that the function t(`y`) = `f``y` will be applied to each value `y` of the series, where `f` is the value specified in column "Scale factor".

## Scale factor

In this column you can specify the scale factor to be used with the "Scaled by specifies value"-option in the column "Transformation".

## Advanced options

The buttons "**Show all**", "**Hide al**l" and "**Toggle all**" at the top of the data series settings window allow you to turn on, turn off or toggle the visibility of all data series simultaneously.

The button "**>>**" shows the advanced visibility options panel (button "**<<**" hides the advanced panel again).

In the **advanced visibility options panel** you can modify the visibility settings of a group of data series.

The fields "**From**" and "**To**" let you specify the first and the last series in a group (data series indices are displayed in the "**Index**"-column which appears together with the advanced panel).

The field "**Every**" lets you specify which series between "From" and "To" (inclusive) belong to the group. You can specify several values separated by commas.

The button "**Go**" applies the action specified in the drop-down box to left of the button to all data series in the group. The possible actions are "**Show**", "**Hide**" and "**Toggle**".

For example:

If you set From="`10`

", To="`30`

" and Every="`3`

" than the specified group will include each 3rd series between the 10th and the 30th series (inclusive). This means the group includes the series at the indices: `10`

, `13`

, `16`

, `19`

, `22`

, `25`

and `28`

.

If you set From="`10`

", To="`30`

" and Every="`5`

" than the specified group will include each 5th series between the 10th and the 30th series (inclusive). This means the group includes the series at the indices: `10`

, `15`

, `20`

, `25`

and `30`

.

If you set From="`10`

", To="`30`

" and Every="`3, 5`

" than the specified group will include each 3rd and each 5th series between the 10th and the 30th series (inclusive). This means the group includes the series at the indices: `10`

, `13`

, `16`

, `19`

, `22`

, `25`

, `28`

, `15`

, `20`

and `30`
