Scatter Line

Short Description

The Scatter Line series displays series points in the same order they were added to the collection (opposite to the Line series that automatically sorts all series points within the collection by their arguments). This chart type can be used in scientific work for displaying and comparing numeric values, such as scientific, statistical and engineering data.

An example of the Scatter Line chart is shown in the image below.
