indicates in plotting and charting functions that a legend entry for expr should be created, with label lbl.

DetailsDetails

  • The content expr and legend leg in Legended[expr, leg] can be be anything, including graphics, tables, and images.
  • Legended can be used as a symbolic wrapper for data elements and datasets in functions such as ListPlot and BarChart.
  • The legend entry associated with Legended[expr, lbl] includes an identifying prototype, such as a color swatch, for expr, displayed with the label lbl.
  • The label lbl in Legended[expr, lbl] can be any expression, including graphics.
  • Legended[expr, Placed[..., pos]] can be used to create legends at different positions.
