Error Bars

This document describes the Error Bars indicators that can be plotted for any Cartesian series view.

Error bars are a graphical representation of the variability of data and are used on charts to indicate the error or uncertainty in a reported measurement. They give a general idea of how precise a measurement is, or conversely, how far from the reported value the true (error free) value might be.

For Cartesian series (series with the XYDiagram2DSeriesViewBase class descendant assigned to SeriesBase.View), you can show any number of Error Bars of the following types.

The following image demonstrates the Percentage Error Bars indicator.
