A.4.5.37 StatLine Form

The StatLine form (), available from the XYArray Layer Control, plots a single line based on a combination (typically the mean) of input array-valued coordinates. The input X and Y coordinates must be fixed-length arrays of length N; a line with N points is plotted, each point representing the mean (or median, minimum, maximum, ...) of all the input array elements at the corresponding position.

Note that because the X and Y arrays must be of a fixed size for all rows, and because combination is performed in both X and Y directions, this is typically only suitable for plotting combined spectra if they all share a common horizontal axis, e.g. are all sampled into the same wavelength bins. To visually combine spectra with non-uniform sampling, the ArrayQuantile form may be more useful.

The configuration options are:

X Combine
Y Combine
Defines how corresponding array elements on the X/Y axis are combined together to produce the plotted value. The following options are currently available:
Color
Color of the plotted line.
Thickness
Thickness in pixels of the plotted line.
Antialiasing
Controls whether grid lines will be drawn antialiased (smoothed) or not. This option does not affect exported plots.
