The table below lists the plot styles available in JSPlot. They should be selected using the plotStyle setting passed to a JSPlot_DataSet instance.

The plot styles available in JSPlot loosely follows those available in Pyxplot. These, in turn, loosely follow those available in gnuplot.

Style name Description Required columns (2D) Required columns (3D)
points Data points (x, y) (x, y, z)
lines Straight lines joining points (x, y) (x, y, z)
linespoints Both points and lines styles together (x, y) (x, y, z)

dots Tiny circles (x, y) (x, y, z)
impulses Lines from horizontal axis to each point (x, y) (x, y, z)
boxes A bar chart (x, y) (x, y)
wboxes A bar chart, with manually specified width for each bar (x, y, width) (x, y, width)
steps A line to be plotted as steps (x, y) (x, y)
fsteps A line to be plotted as steps (x, y) (x, y)
