  • DatasetThemetheme effectively sets the default values for multiple dataset options.
  • Explicit Dataset options will override any settings set by theme.
  • DatasetTheme{theme1,theme2,} will automatically combine theme1, theme2, etc.
  • Possible settings for DatasetTheme include:
  • Automaticautomatically adapt to background and stylesheet

    "Scientific"candid design useful for analyzing detailed data without overbearing colors
    "Web"clean, bold design suitable for a consumer website or blog
    "Classic"historical design of datasets to remain compatible with existing uses
  • Feature themes affect specific aspects of a dataset and are typically used in combination with a base theme or together with other feature themes.

    "ColumnDividers"column dividers only
    "GroupDividers"dividers that group low-level blocks
    "FullDividers"row and column dividers
  • Background feature themes affect dataset backgrounds. Themes include:

    "AlternatingRowColumnBackgrounds"top-level row and column backgrounds striped
