NAME

Chart::Plotly::Trace::Scatter - The scatter trace type encompasses line charts, scatter charts, text charts, and bubble charts. The data visualized as scatter point or lines is set in `x` and `y`. Text (appearing either on the chart or on hover only) is via `text`. Bubble charts are achieved by setting `marker.size` and/or `marker.color` to numerical arrays.

SYNOPSIS

 use HTML::Show;
 use Chart::Plotly;
 use Chart::Plotly::Trace::Scatter;
 my $scatter = Chart::Plotly::Trace::Scatter->new( x => [ 1 .. 5 ], y => [ 1 .. 5 ] );
 
 HTML::Show::show( Chart::Plotly::render_full_html( data => [$scatter] ) );

DESCRIPTION

The scatter trace type encompasses line charts, scatter charts, text charts, and bubble charts. The data visualized as scatter point or lines is set in `x` and `y`. Text (appearing either on the chart or on hover only) is via `text`. Bubble charts are achieved by setting `marker.size` and/or `marker.color` to numerical arrays.

METHODS

TO_JSON

Serialize the trace to JSON. This method should be called only by JSON serializer.

type

Trace type.

ATTRIBUTES

  • cliponaxis

    Determines whether or not markers and text nodes are clipped about the subplot axes. To show markers and text nodes above axis lines and tick labels, make sure to set `xaxis.layer` and `yaxis.layer` to *below traces*.

  • connectgaps

    Determines whether or not gaps (i.e. {nan} or missing values) in the provided data arrays are connected.

  • customdata

    Assigns extra data each datum. This may be useful when listening to hover, click and selection events. Note that, *scatter* traces also appends customdata items in the markers DOM elements

  • customdatasrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for customdata .

  • dx

    Sets the x coordinate step. See `x0` for more info.

  • dy

    Sets the y coordinate step. See `y0` for more info.

  • error_x

  • error_y

  • fill

    Sets the area to fill with a solid color. Defaults to *none* unless this trace is stacked, then it gets *tonexty* (*tonextx*) if `orientation` is *v* (*h*) Use with `fillcolor` if not *none*. *tozerox* and *tozeroy* fill to x=0 and y=0 respectively. *tonextx* and *tonexty* fill between the endpoints of this trace and the endpoints of the trace before it, connecting those endpoints with straight lines (to make a stacked area graph); if there is no trace before it, they behave like *tozerox* and *tozeroy*. *toself* connects the endpoints of the trace (or each segment of the trace if it has gaps) into a closed shape. *tonext* fills the space between two traces if one completely encloses the other (eg consecutive contour lines), and behaves like *toself* if there is no trace before it. *tonext* should not be used if one trace does not enclose the other. Traces in a `stackgroup` will only fill to (or be filled to) other traces in the same group. With multiple `stackgroup`s or some traces stacked and some not, if fill-linked traces are not already consecutive, the later ones will be pushed down in the drawing order.

  • fillcolor

    Sets the fill color. Defaults to a half-transparent variant of the line color, marker color, or marker line color, whichever is available.

  • groupnorm

    Only relevant when `stackgroup` is used, and only the first `groupnorm` found in the `stackgroup` will be used - including if `visible` is *legendonly* but not if it is `false`. Sets the normalization for the sum of this `stackgroup`. With *fraction*, the value of each trace at each location is divided by the sum of all trace values at that location. *percent* is the same but multiplied by 100 to show percentages. If there are multiple subplots, or multiple `stackgroup`s on one subplot, each will be normalized within its own set.

  • hoverinfo

    Determines which trace information appear on hover. If `none` or `skip` are set, no information is displayed upon hovering. But, if `none` is set, click and hover events are still fired.

  • hoverinfosrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for hoverinfo .

  • hoverlabel

  • hoveron

    Do the hover effects highlight individual points (markers or line points) or do they highlight filled regions? If the fill is *toself* or *tonext* and there are no markers or text, then the default is *fills*, otherwise it is *points*.

  • hovertemplate

    Template string used for rendering the information that appear on hover box. Note that this will override `hoverinfo`. Variables are inserted using %{variable}, for example "y: %{y}". Numbers are formatted using d3-format's syntax %{variable:d3-format}, for example "Price: %{y:$.2f}". https://github.com/d3/d3-3.x-api-reference/blob/master/Formatting.md#d3_format for details on the formatting syntax. Dates are formatted using d3-time-format's syntax %{variable|d3-time-format}, for example "Day: %{2019-01-01|%A}". https://github.com/d3/d3-3.x-api-reference/blob/master/Time-Formatting.md#format for details on the date formatting syntax. The variables available in `hovertemplate` are the ones emitted as event data described at this link https://plot.ly/javascript/plotlyjs-events/#event-data. Additionally, every attributes that can be specified per-point (the ones that are `arrayOk: true`) are available. Anything contained in tag `<extra>` is displayed in the secondary box, for example "<extra>{fullData.name}</extra>". To hide the secondary box completely, use an empty tag `<extra></extra>`.

  • hovertemplatesrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for hovertemplate .

  • hovertext

    Sets hover text elements associated with each (x,y) pair. If a single string, the same string appears over all the data points. If an array of string, the items are mapped in order to the this trace's (x,y) coordinates. To be seen, trace `hoverinfo` must contain a *text* flag.

  • hovertextsrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for hovertext .

  • ids

    Assigns id labels to each datum. These ids for object constancy of data points during animation. Should be an array of strings, not numbers or any other type.

  • idssrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for ids .

  • legendgroup

    Sets the legend group for this trace. Traces part of the same legend group hide/show at the same time when toggling legend items.

  • line

  • marker

  • pmeta

    Assigns extra meta information associated with this trace that can be used in various text attributes. Attributes such as trace `name`, graph, axis and colorbar `title.text`, annotation `text` `rangeselector`, `updatemenues` and `sliders` `label` text all support `meta`. To access the trace `meta` values in an attribute in the same trace, simply use `%{meta[i]}` where `i` is the index or key of the `meta` item in question. To access trace `meta` in layout attributes, use `%{data[n[.meta[i]}` where `i` is the index or key of the `meta` and `n` is the trace index.

  • metasrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for meta .

  • mode

    Determines the drawing mode for this scatter trace. If the provided `mode` includes *text* then the `text` elements appear at the coordinates. Otherwise, the `text` elements appear on hover. If there are less than 20 points and the trace is not stacked then the default is *lines+markers*. Otherwise, *lines*.

  • name

    Sets the trace name. The trace name appear as the legend item and on hover.

  • opacity

    Sets the opacity of the trace.

  • orientation

    Only relevant when `stackgroup` is used, and only the first `orientation` found in the `stackgroup` will be used - including if `visible` is *legendonly* but not if it is `false`. Sets the stacking direction. With *v* (*h*), the y (x) values of subsequent traces are added. Also affects the default value of `fill`.

  • r

    r coordinates in scatter traces are deprecated!Please switch to the *scatterpolar* trace type.Sets the radial coordinatesfor legacy polar chart only.

  • rsrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for r .

  • selected

  • selectedpoints

    Array containing integer indices of selected points. Has an effect only for traces that support selections. Note that an empty array means an empty selection where the `unselected` are turned on for all points, whereas, any other non-array values means no selection all where the `selected` and `unselected` styles have no effect.

  • showlegend

    Determines whether or not an item corresponding to this trace is shown in the legend.

  • stackgaps

    Only relevant when `stackgroup` is used, and only the first `stackgaps` found in the `stackgroup` will be used - including if `visible` is *legendonly* but not if it is `false`. Determines how we handle locations at which other traces in this group have data but this one does not. With *infer zero* we insert a zero at these locations. With *interpolate* we linearly interpolate between existing values, and extrapolate a constant beyond the existing values.

  • stackgroup

    Set several scatter traces (on the same subplot) to the same stackgroup in order to add their y values (or their x values if `orientation` is *h*). If blank or omitted this trace will not be stacked. Stacking also turns `fill` on by default, using *tonexty* (*tonextx*) if `orientation` is *h* (*v*) and sets the default `mode` to *lines* irrespective of point count. You can only stack on a numeric (linear or log) axis. Traces in a `stackgroup` will only fill to (or be filled to) other traces in the same group. With multiple `stackgroup`s or some traces stacked and some not, if fill-linked traces are not already consecutive, the later ones will be pushed down in the drawing order.

  • stream

  • t

    t coordinates in scatter traces are deprecated!Please switch to the *scatterpolar* trace type.Sets the angular coordinatesfor legacy polar chart only.

  • text

    Sets text elements associated with each (x,y) pair. If a single string, the same string appears over all the data points. If an array of string, the items are mapped in order to the this trace's (x,y) coordinates. If trace `hoverinfo` contains a *text* flag and *hovertext* is not set, these elements will be seen in the hover labels.

  • textfont

  • textposition

    Sets the positions of the `text` elements with respects to the (x,y) coordinates.

  • textpositionsrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for textposition .

  • textsrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for text .

  • texttemplate

    Template string used for rendering the information text that appear on points. Note that this will override `textinfo`. Variables are inserted using %{variable}, for example "y: %{y}". Numbers are formatted using d3-format's syntax %{variable:d3-format}, for example "Price: %{y:$.2f}". https://github.com/d3/d3-3.x-api-reference/blob/master/Formatting.md#d3_format for details on the formatting syntax. Dates are formatted using d3-time-format's syntax %{variable|d3-time-format}, for example "Day: %{2019-01-01|%A}". https://github.com/d3/d3-3.x-api-reference/blob/master/Time-Formatting.md#format for details on the date formatting syntax. Every attributes that can be specified per-point (the ones that are `arrayOk: true`) are available.

  • texttemplatesrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for texttemplate .

  • transforms

  • tsrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for t .

  • uid

    Assign an id to this trace, Use this to provide object constancy between traces during animations and transitions.

  • uirevision

    Controls persistence of some user-driven changes to the trace: `constraintrange` in `parcoords` traces, as well as some `editable: true` modifications such as `name` and `colorbar.title`. Defaults to `layout.uirevision`. Note that other user-driven trace attribute changes are controlled by `layout` attributes: `trace.visible` is controlled by `layout.legend.uirevision`, `selectedpoints` is controlled by `layout.selectionrevision`, and `colorbar.(x|y)` (accessible with `config: {editable: true}`) is controlled by `layout.editrevision`. Trace changes are tracked by `uid`, which only falls back on trace index if no `uid` is provided. So if your app can add/remove traces before the end of the `data` array, such that the same trace has a different index, you can still preserve user-driven changes if you give each trace a `uid` that stays with it as it moves.

  • unselected

  • visible

    Determines whether or not this trace is visible. If *legendonly*, the trace is not drawn, but can appear as a legend item (provided that the legend itself is visible).

  • x

    Sets the x coordinates.

  • x0

    Alternate to `x`. Builds a linear space of x coordinates. Use with `dx` where `x0` is the starting coordinate and `dx` the step.

  • xaxis

    Sets a reference between this trace's x coordinates and a 2D cartesian x axis. If *x* (the default value), the x coordinates refer to `layout.xaxis`. If *x2*, the x coordinates refer to `layout.xaxis2`, and so on.

  • xcalendar

    Sets the calendar system to use with `x` date data.

  • xsrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for x .

  • y

    Sets the y coordinates.

  • y0

    Alternate to `y`. Builds a linear space of y coordinates. Use with `dy` where `y0` is the starting coordinate and `dy` the step.

  • yaxis

    Sets a reference between this trace's y coordinates and a 2D cartesian y axis. If *y* (the default value), the y coordinates refer to `layout.yaxis`. If *y2*, the y coordinates refer to `layout.yaxis2`, and so on.

  • ycalendar

    Sets the calendar system to use with `y` date data.

  • ysrc

    Sets the source reference on plot.ly for y .
