FactorBoxPlot STATBEAN®


Purpose: Displays a box-and-whisker plot of one numeric variable versus levels of an experimental factor. Lets Statgraphics create a box and whisker plot using any data source.

Box And Whisker Plot Generator DataSource: any. 


Box And Whisker Plot Generator Read/Write Properties
Name Type Description Possible Values Default Value
boxWidth int Percentage of plotting area covered by the box. 10-100 40
confidenceLevel double Level of confidence for the prediction and confidence limits, as a percentage. 0.0001-99.9999 95.0
drawVertical boolean Whether to plot the percentages on the vertical axis. true,false true
factorVariableName String The name of the column with factor levels. Any string. ""
flagOutsidePoints boolean Whether to add point symbols showing values unusually far from the box. true,false true
meanSymbol boolean Whether to add a plus sign showing the sample mean. true,false true
medianNotch boolean Whether to add a notch showing a confidence interval for the median. true,false false
includeVariableName String The name of an optional column with values indicating which cases should be included (a non-zero value indicates inclusion). Any string. ""
labelSkipFactor int If >1, will skip (labelSkipFactor1-1) labels between each label displayed.. 1+ 1
rotateClassLabels boolean Whether to make the bar labels vertical. true,false false
tablewiseExclusion boolean Whether all rows of the data table containing a missing value in any column should be excluded from the plot. true,false false
xVariableName String The name of the column with data values to be plotted. Any string. ""

Other properties needed to create a box and whisker plot are inherited from the java.awt.Canvas class and from the general GraphicalStatbean class.

Code Sample 

//create a datasource bean 
FileDataSource fileDataSource1 = new STATBEANS.FileDataSource(); 

//set the file name to be read 

//create a chart bean 
FactorBoxPlot plot1 = new STATBEANS.FactorBoxPlot(); 

//set the column to be plotted 

//set the factor column 

//set the direction 

//show the plot 

//make the plot bean a listener for changes in the FileDataSource bean 

//instruct the fileDataSource bean to read the file
