The Chart Report

Follow the instructions in Example of the Chart Platform to produce the report shown in Figure A.4.

Charts can be bar charts, pie charts, line charts, needle charts, point charts, and range charts. Figure A.4 shows a standard bar chart.

For information about additional options for the report, see Chart Platform Options.

Legends

Legends are shown as needed. If your chart uses different colors or markers to show levels of one or two X variables, a legend below the chart shows them. If your chart uses different colors or markers to show more than one statistic, a legend to the right of the chart shows them.

Figure A.5 Examples of an X Legend (left) and Y Legend (right) 

Ordering

By default, the Chart platform orders the bars using one of the common orders supported by JMP (months, days of the week, and so on). If the grouping column has a Value Order column property, it uses that order. With no Value Order property, bars are drawn in alphanumeric order.

2. Right-click and select Colors.
