Example plots shown next to the code used to create them


ScottPlot 5 Quickstart
A survey of basic functionality in ScottPlot 5
Display paired X/Y data as a scatter plot.
Functions that add things to plots return the plottables they create. Interact with the properties of plottables to customize their styling and behavior.
Signal plots are optimized for displaying evenly spaced data.
Signal plots can interactively display millions of data points in real time. Double-click the plot to display performance benchmarks.
Axis labels can be extensively customized.
A legend displays plottables in a key along the edge of a plot. Most plottables have a Label property which configures what text appears in the legend.
Styling Plots
How to customize plots
Figure and data area background colors can be customized.
Axis labels, tick marks, and frame can all be customized.
Grid lines can be customized. Custom grid systems can be created to give developers full control of grid rendering, but the default grid can be interacted with to customize its appearance.
Grid lines are typically drawn beneath data, but grids can be configured to render on top of plottables too.
A palette is a set of colors, and the Plot's palette defines the default colors to use when adding new plottables. ScottPlot comes with many standard palettes, but users may also create their own.
Many plot types have a MarkerStyle which can be customized.

## Customization
Axis and Ticks
Examples of common customizations for axis labels and ticks
Axis labels are the text labels centered on each axis. The text inside these labels can be changed, and the style of the text can be extensively customized.
Axis Limits can be set manually in different ways.
The current axis limits can be read in multiple ways.
The axis limits can be automatically adjusted to fit the data. Optional arguments allow users to define the amount of whitespace around the edges of the data.
How to create a plot containig only the data area and no axes.
Configuring Legends
A legend is a key typically displayed in the corner of a plot
The default legend can be easily accessed and customized. It is possible to add multiple legends, including custom ones implementing ILegend.
Legends may be constructed manually.
Legends typically show all plot items with populated Label fields. However, users can use the manual legend property to only show legend items from specific plottables.
Customizing Ticks
Advanced customization of tick marks and tick labels
Alternative tick generators can be created and assigned to axes. Some common tick generators are provided with ScottPlot, and users also have the option create their own.
Advanced Axis Features
Tick mark customization and creation of multi-Axis plots
Additional axes may be added to plots. Plottables are displayed using the coordinate system of the primary axes by default, but any plottable can be displayed using any X and Y axis.

## PlotTypes
Bar Plot
Bar plots represent values as horizontal or vertical rectangles
Bar plots can be added from a series of values.
The exact position and size of each bar may be customized.
Bar plots can be grouped into bar series and plotted together.
