Creating Graph Rows

Graph rows, when selected, display the graphing view. These rows include a variable and equation. It can also have an optional label. (It must be present but can be ""). Possible graph types include function graphs, bar charts and scatter plots.

Graph Basics

This is the basic structure of a graph row:

"" G variable:graph(...) ::
"Label" G variable:graph(...) ::

Text label displayed to the template's user. It is optional, as demonstrated by the first structural example above. When excluded, the label "Graph" is displayed. The label is not used in an equation (variables are). This can be a single word (i.e. Periods) or multiple words (i.e., "Present Value"). If multiple words it must be in quotation marks. (details here)

This letter indicates that this row is a graph type.

Reference name for the row. This variable must be unique for each row. (details here)

Colon [:]
Separates the variable from equation.

Formula to calculate. Graph rows always use the graph function.

Double-Colon [::]
Indicates the end of the row. This is optional for the template's final row.

Number Mode & Precision

The real number mode and precision is set by an additional, optional component. If this is excluded a real number of floating precision (decimal places) is assumed:

"Label" "Default" variable, precision:equation ::

For real numbers use the values 0 through 10. (For floating precision leave off the precision altogether.) -1 denotes float.

Scientific, engineering, fraction and feet-inch number modes are not supported.
