Properties for Data Science Charts
Intro
Find out about chart properties available for Data Science charts, such as those for configuring quadrant lines, regression lines, box plot settings, and so on.
"General" properties
The properties in the following table are found in the General category in Chart Properties.
"Grid Lines" properties
The properties in the following table are found in the Grid Lines category in Chart Properties.
Option 
Description 
Examples 

Hide All Grids 
Turns off grid lines in bubble charts. This is useful when you want to create a "quadrant chart" (that is, a chart divided into four sections using two coordinate lines). For more properties related to quadrant charts, see Quadrant Lines. 

Y Zero Line Color 
Determines the color of the horizontal "zero line" in bubble and scatter plot charts. This attribute does not work if the zero line is also the baseline in the chart (that is, the chart must contain negative values). In the example, this property has been set to 

Y Zero Line Width 
Determines the width of the horizontal "zero line" in bubble and scatter plot charts. This attribute does not work if the zero line is also the baseline in the chart (that is, the chart must contain negative values). In the example, this property has been set to 

X Zero Line Color 
Determines the color for the vertical "zero line" in bubble and scatter plot charts. This attribute does not work if the vertical zero line is the leftmost line in the chart (that is, the chart must contain negative values). In the example, this property has been set to 

X Zero Line Width 
Determines the width of the vertical "zero line" in bubble and scatter plot charts. This attribute does not work if the zero line is the leftmost line in the chart (that is, the chart must contain negative values). In the example, this property has been set to 
"Quadrant Lines" properties
The properties in the following table are found in the Quadrant Lines category in Chart Properties.
Option 
Description 
Examples 

X Scale Value 
Allows you to set the value for the vertical quadrant line in a bubble chart. If you do not specify a value for this property, no vertical quadrant line appears. The example shows a bubble chart in which both the X and Y scale quadrant lines have been set to the midpoint value of 50. This dissects the chart into four quadrants of equal area. (Grid lines have also been turned off using the Grid Lines > Hide All Grids property. For more information about this property, see Hide All Grids.) 

Y Scale Value 
Allows you to set the value for the horizontal quadrant line in a bubble chart. If you do not specify a value for this property, no horizontal quadrant line appears. For an example chart that uses quadrant lines, see the previous entry.

"Regression Lines" properties
The properties in the following table are found in the Regression Lines category in Chart Properties.
Option 
Description 
Examples 

Show Linear Regression Lines 
Allows you to add a regression line for each series in a scatter plot or bubble chart. 
"Control Chart Rules" properties
The properties in the following table are found in the "Control Chart Rules" category in Chart Properties.
Option  Description  Examples 

Beyond Limits 
Turns on the "Beyond Limits" rule for SPC charts, which flags points if they are outside of the automatically determined upper or lower limits of the chart, which are 3 standard deviations away from the mean. 

2 of 3 Outside 2 Standard Deviations 
Turns on the "2 of 3 Outside 2 Standard Deviations" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 2 out of 3 consecutive points are outside of 2 standard deviations away from the mean. 

4 of 5 Outside 1 Standard Deviation 
Turns on the "4 of 5 Outside 1 Standard Deviation" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 4 out of 5 consecutive points are outside of 1 standard deviation away from the mean. 

Run Over/Under Mean 
Turns on the "Run Over/Under Mean" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether a specified number of consecutive points fall over or under the mean. You specify the number of points that must be consecutive using the Color Chart Rules > Run Length option. 

Run Length 
Determines the number of points over or under the mean that must be consecutive for the "Run Over/Under Mean" SPC chart rule to apply. 
— 
Trend 
Turns on the "Trend" rule for SPC charts, which looks whether a specified number of points are trending up or down. You specify the number of points that must be consecutive using the Color Chart Rules > Trend Length option. 

Trend Length 
Determines the number of points that must trend up or down for the "Trend" SPC rule to apply. 
— 
8 Outside 1 Std Deviation 
Turns on the "8 Outside 1 Std Deviation" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 8 consecutive points are outside of 1 standard deviation away from the mean. 

15 Within 1 Std Deviation 
Turns on the "15 Within 1 Std Deviation" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 15 consecutive points fall within 1 standard deviation away from the mean. 

14 Alternating 
Turns on the "14 Alternating" rule for SPC charts, which looks at whether 14 consecutive points alternately rise and fall. 
"Limit Lines" Properties
The properties in the following table are found in the "Limit Lines" category in Chart Properties.
Option 
Description 
Examples 

Mean Line Color 
Determines the color of the mean line in your SPC chart (the default is green). In the example, the mean line appears as purple. 

Mean Line Style 
Determines the style of the mean line in your SPC chart, whether solid (default), dotted, or dashed. In the example, the mean line appears solid. 

Upper/Lower Control Line Color 
Determines the color of the upper and lower limit lines in your SPC chart (the default is red). In the example, the limit lines appear as orange. 

Upper/Lower Control Line Style 
Determines the style of the upper and lower limit lines in your SPC chart (the default is dashed). In the example, the limit lines appear dotted. 

Show 12 Std Deviation Lines 
Determines whether standard deviation lines appear in your SPC chart. When these are present, they appear as green and dotted. 
— 
1st Std Deviation Line Color 
Determines the color of the 1st standard deviation lines in your SPC chart (the default is green). In the example, the lines appear as purple. 

1st Standard Deviation Line Style 
Determines the style of the 1st standard deviation lines in your SPC chart (the default is dotted). In the example, the lines appear solid and red. 

2nd Standard Deviation Color 
Determines the color of the 2nd standard deviation lines in your SPC chart (the default is green). In the example, the lines appear as purple. 

2nd Standard Deviation Style 
Determines the style of the 2nd standard deviation lines in your SPC chart (the default is dotted). In the example, the lines appear as red and solid.
