Parameter: Histogram type

Full name: Histogram type (bar style) code
Parameter type: graph type (Adaptive, Bar, Dot, Symbol)
Initial value: Adaptive

Affects: all averaged graphs

This parameter determines how data points will be drawn on the histograms displayed in place of graphs of averaged data, when the "Histogram display" option is enabled. If Bar is chosen, the values are shown as vertical bars from the bottom of the graph, up to the level indicated by each value. If Dot is chosen, the values are shown as single dots. If Symbol is chosen, the values are shown as diamond symbols, whose size can be changed by the "Diamond symbol size" parameter.

If Adaptive is chosen, the type is automatically picked as one of the other three choices, based on context. Bars will be displayed if there are less than 400 bins, otherwise dots are shown.

For analyses that normally produce frequency histograms, even when the "Histogram display" option is disabled, use the "Graph type" parameter instead. The "Histogram type" parameter is only for histograms generated when the "Histogram display" option is enabled.

For dot and symbol graphs, the data points will be connected by line segments if the "Interpolation" option is enabled. For symbol graphs, you can replace the diamond symbol with a character label, by setting the "Graph tag symbol" parameter.
