# Chart | Format | Display

The Chart | Format | Display group allows you to modify the display settings for charts.

*Histogram*: Display a frequency histogram of the data (risk profiles only). A Cumulative chart displays on the y-axis the probability
that the plotted data is less than or equal to the x-axis value. A Frequency Histogram chart
is a bar chart that displays on the y-axis the probability that the plotted data is within
each interval on the x-axis. The default chart type from a Decision Analysis run is cumulative; the default type from a Monte Carlo run is histogram.

*Decumulative*: Display a decumulative plot of the data (risk profiles only). A decumulative chart displays on the y-axis the probability
that the plotted data exceeds the x-axis value.

*As Error Bar*: Display the percentiles in a Time Series Percentile as a vertical bar from the minimum percentile to the maximum. If not checked, then each percentile series
is connected with a line. Percentiles display as a range bar are not affected.

*EV/CE Lines:* draw a vertical line at the expected value or certain equivalent associated with each series (risk profiles only).

*EV/CE Values:* include the value(s) of the expected value number or certain equivalent number on the chart (risk profiles, bar/column charts).

*Additive:* for bar/column charts, display each subsequent bar as a running total.

*Column:* for bar/column charts, switch orientation.

*Shading:* display background shading behind chart image.

*Vertical:* make background shading vertical.

*X Grid Lines:* add vertical grid lines to the graph.

*Y Grid Lines:* add horizontal grid lines to the graph.

*Dashed Grid Lines:* make grid lines dashed.

* Versions:* DPL Professional, DPL Enterprise, DPL Portfolio
