# ChartStyle

 ChartStyle is an option for charting functions that specifies styles in which chart elements should be drawn.
• ChartStyle->g specifies that graphics directive g should be used to draw all chart elements.
• ChartStyle specifies that successive directives should be used cyclically for successive elements in each dataset.
• ChartStyle uses the successive to contribute styles for successive dimensions in nested lists of datasets.
• With the form ChartStyle, the i, j, ... element in a nested list of datasets has a style given by applying , then , etc.
• Any that is None contributes no style directives.
• A specification is effectively equivalent to {None, ..., None, {g1, g2, ...}}.
• The directives that can be used in ChartStyle include:
 Dashing[{w1,...}] dashing specification Directive[g1,g2,...] composite graphics directive EdgeForm[g] edge-drawing specification FaceForm[g] face-drawing specification Glow[c] glow color GrayLevel[i] intensity Hue[h] hue Opacity[a] opacity PointSize[d] point size Red, Blue, etc. named colors RGBColor[r,g,b] RGB color Specularity[s] surface specularity Thickness[w] line thickness
• ChartStyle effectively takes the list of styles needed by ChartStyle to be given by sampling ColorData["name"][x] at equally spaced values of x.
• Style can be used to style chart elements associated with individual data points or datasets. Such specifications are used after specifications from ChartStyle.
