Note: The y-axis starts from the smallest y value, though this can be overridden with the yAxisMin parameter.

Scatter plot[change source]

By using a line plot with linewidth=0, it is possible to create a scatter plot:

{{Graph:Chart
|width=500
|height=200
|type=line
|x=15.7,10.8,68.5,33.4,23.8,42.2,27.1,38.2,13.5,74.3
|y1=1517,970,4075,3819,2106,2919,2428,2164,1393,7603
|showSymbols=1
|linewidth=0
|yGrid= |xGrid= 
}}

Syntax error

Using percentages[change source]

  • When xAxisFormat or yAxisFormat is set to %, a percentage sign will be added to the scale of the corresponding axis.
  • A value of 1 equals 100%. A decimal point should be added in front of percentages between 0 and 100, for instance .25 for 25%.
  • Including the code | yAxisMin=0 | yAxisMax=1 will force the y axis scale to run from 0% to 100%.
{{Graph:Chart
| width = 450
| height = 350
| x = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23
| yAxisMin = 0
| yAxisMax = 1
| yAxisFormat = %
| showSymbols = 
| y1 = , , , .43, , , , .39, .43, .38, .38, .40, .48, .54 , .42, .47, .45, .48, .44, .41, .41, .45, .46
| y2 = .40, .377, .38, , .39, .38, .419, .55, .60, .63

| y4 = {{repeat|7|, }} .40, .44, .42, .47, .44, .43, .42

Line chart

Bar chart in a {{side box}}:

{{Side box |metadata=No<!--This makes the box display on the mobile site-->
 | above = '''A graph of something'''
 | abovestyle = text-align:center

  |height = 150
  |width = 200
  |xAxisTitle = Year
  |xAxisAngle = -40
  |yAxisTitle = Units of something
  |yAxisMin = 0

  |y2 =   ,     ,     , 226, 208, 276
  |colors = blue,grey
  }}
 | below = Caption & source links here
}}

Legends[change source]

A legend can be added where there are multiple data series:

{{Graph:Chart
 | width=400
 | height=150
 | xAxisTitle=X
 | yAxisTitle=Y
 | legend=Legend
 | y1Title=Blue
 | y2Title=Orange
 | type=line
 | x=1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8
 | y1=10,12,6,14,2,10,7,9
 | y2=2,4,6,8,13,11,9,2
}}
Syntax error

The title can be omitted by leaving the parameter blank:

{{Graph:Chart
 | width=400
 | height=150
 | xAxisTitle=X
 | yAxisTitle=Y
 | legend=
 | y1Title=Blue
 | y2Title=Orange
 | type=line
 | x=1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8
 | y1=10,12,6,14,2,10,7,9
 | y2=2,4,6,8,13,11,9,2
}}
Syntax error

Long legend entries can look clumsy. It may be better to omit the legend parameter and use {{Legend}} (or a similar template) instead:

{{Graph:Chart
 | width=400
 | height=150
 | xAxisTitle=X
 | yAxisTitle=Y
 | colors=darkred, gold
 | type=line
 | x=1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8
 | y1=10,12,6,14,2,10,7,9
 | y2=2,4,6,8,13,11,9,2
}}
{{legend|darkred|This is a long legend entry and wouldn't look so good if it was part of the graph itself.}}
{{legend|gold|This is another fairly long entry.}}
Syntax error

     This is a long legend entry and wouldn't look so good if it was part of the graph itself.      This is another fairly long entry.


This method also allows the use of wiki formatting and the insertion of links. Graphs using the default colors need to specify the hex values in the legend templates:

     #1f77b4

     #ff7f0e      #2ca02c      #d62728      #9467bd      #8c564b      #e377c2      #7f7f7f      #bcbd22      #17becf
