# Graph SymbolSeq

## SysVar Graph_SymbolSeq

This system variable specifies the sequence of symbol shapes used in graphs. Each symbol is specified by a number from 1 to 13, as shown below. Analytica does not yet offer a graphical interface to access it. You can only set it via the Typescript window, or in a function called from a Button script.

If you set the system variable, **Graph_SymbolSeq**, itself, it will control the global default for all graphs. You can specify the symbol sequence for a single variable by assigning a tuple of symbol numbers to Graph_SymbolSeq in the GraphSetup attribute of the variable. You can also specify the symbol sequence for a graph template by adding the assignment in the *GraphSetup* attribute of the template.

The definition must be a tuple of integers between 1 and 13. You can do this by typing this into the Typescript:

`Graph_SymbolSeq: [9, 8, 10, 11, 12]`

This example specifies only 5 symbols. A graph needing more than 5 symbols will repeat after the first 5.

The default sequence is equivalent to:

`Graph_SymbolSeq: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13]`

Analytica provides 13 built-in symbols, with this map from number to symbol:

Number Symbol 1 solid circle 2 solid square 3 solid diamond 4 solid upright triangle 5 X 6 + 7 Solid inverted triangle 8 Hollow square 9 Hollow diamond 10 Hollow upright triangle 11 Hollow circle 12 Hollow inverted triangle 13 *
