Home > The Timeline view > Chart configuration series options |

Each chart in the Timeline view contains one or more series or sets of data to use in its charts. Each series has a set options, specific to that series that enable you to customize both the data it uses to plot the chart and the look and feel.

**Figure 6-28 Series options**

Use the handle on the left side of each series control to change the order the series appears in the chart. Click and drag a series control to move it.

Each series in a chart contains the following options:

- Color
- To change the color of a series in the Timeline view, click on the color box in its series
control. This opens the color dialog box:

### Note

The type of Color dialog box that appears depends on your operating system. - Name
- Enter a name for the series. This name appears next to the chart color in the chart key.
- Tooltip
- Enter a description for the series in this field. When you hover over the series title or color in the Timeline view, a tooltip appears, containing the description defined here.
- Expression
- Use this field to define the data set that the series uses. Press
Ctrl + Space or the
`$`symbol to activate a drop-menu that shows you a list of counters. You can select a counter in this Content Assist list to see its description. Click on a counter to add it to the Expression field. You can create an expression using more than one counter by using a combination of counter names and any of the following operators:`>, <, >=, <=, ==, !=, ||, !, &&, %, *, /, +, -`

. You can use parentheticals to define the order of operation. In addition to the mathematical and comparative operators, you can use the following expressions in the Expression field.:`if`

- Evaluates whether a condition is true or false
before applying an effect. Usage:
`if(x, y, z)`

, where`x`

is the expression to be analyzed. The result is`y`

if x is non-zero or`z`

if`x`

is zero. Only one of`y`

or`z`

is evaluated. `abs`

- Returns the absolute value of the numeric
expression specified as the parameter. Usage:
`abs(x)`

, where`x`

is a numeric expression. `ceiling`

- Returns the smallest integer that is greater
than or equal to the numeric expression given as a parameter.
Usage:
`ceiling(x)`

, where`x`

is a numeric expression. `floor`

- Returns the largest integer that is less than or
equal to a numeric expression given as a parameter. Usage:
`floor(x)`

, where`x`

is a numeric expression. `max`

- Returns the maximum value over the entire
capture from the given numeric expression. Usage:
`max(x)`

, where`x`

is a numeric expression. `min`

- Returns the minimum value over the entire
capture from the given numeric expression. Usage:
`min(x`

), where`x`

is a numeric expression. `round`

- Returns a numeric expression that is rounded to
the specified length. The length parameter must evaluate to an
integer. Usage:
`round(x, y)`

, where`x`

is a numeric expression and`y`

is the precision length.

- Unit
- Enter the unit type for the series. The value you enter in this field appears when you use the Cross Section Marker to select one or more bins.
- -
- Removes the current series from the chart.
- +
- Adds a new series to the chart. The new series appears immediately in the Timeline once you enter a valid expression in the Expression field. You can have up to eight series in a single chart.
