ExtentSize

ExtentSize
is an option to DiscretePlot and DiscretePlot3D that specifies how far to extend out from each plot point.
  • The following settings can be used:
Noneno extent
Fullfully extend to neighboring points
Allmaximal equal size extents
Leftfully extend to the left in all dimensions
Rightfully extend to the right in all dimensions
{sl,sr}specify left and right extents
{specx,specy}use different specifications in different dimensions
  • The sizes can be either in ordinary plot coordinates or Scaled[s] as a fraction of distance between neighboring points.
  • In one dimension we have the equivalent specifications:
None
Full{Scaled[0.5], Scaled[0.5]}
Left{Scaled[1.0], Scaled[0.0]}
Right{Scaled[0.0], Scaled[1.0]}
  • In two dimensions, ExtentSize->spec is equivalent to ExtentSize, using the same extent specification along both the axis and axis.
Specify sizes that fill the regions between neighboring points:
Use absolute sizes centered on the plot point:
Use different sizes on either side of the plot point:
Use fractions of the distance to neighboring points:
With unevenly spaced points:
ExtentSize->All uses the largest absolute size that will not cause overlapping regions:
