Plots usually have interactive callouts showing the coordinates when you mouse over them:

DataRange  (4)

Lists of height values are displayed against the number of elements:

Rescale to the sampling space:

Pairs are interpreted as , coordinates:

Specifying DataRange in this case has no effect, since values are part of the data:

Force interpretation as multiple datasets:

Filling  (3)

Use symbolic or explicit values:

Fills that overlap by default combine using opacity:

Fill between the first curve and the axis:

Fill with red below the axis and with blue above:

Use a variable filling style obtained from ColorFunction:

InterpolationOrder  (1)

Points are normally joined with straight lines:

Use quadratic spline interpolation to fit the data:

Use flat regions with steps at each data point:

IntervalMarkers  (3)

By default, uncertainties are capped:

Use bars to denote uncertainties without caps:

Use bands to represent uncertainties:

IntervalMarkersStyle  (2)

Uncertainties automatically inherit the plot style:

Specify the style for uncertainties:

LabelingFunction  (1)

By default, points are automatically labeled with strings:

Image labels are automatically resized:

Specify a maximum size for textual labels:

Specify a maximum size for image labels:

Show image labels at their natural sizes:

MaxPlotPoints  (1)

All points are included by default:

Uniformly spaced data is downsampled:

Mesh  (1)

The initial and final sampling meshes are typically the same:

Interpolated data may introduce points:

Use 20 mesh levels evenly spaced in the direction:

Use an explicit list of values for the mesh in the direction:

Specify style and mesh levels in the direction:

MeshFunctions  (1)

Use a mesh evenly spaced in the and directions:

Show 5 mesh levels in the direction (red) and 10 in the direction (blue):

MeshShading  (1)

Alternate red and blue segments of equal width in the direction:

Use None to remove segments:

MeshShading can be used with PlotStyle:

MeshShading has higher priority than PlotStyle for styling the curve:

Use PlotStyle for some segments by setting MeshShading to Automatic:

MeshShading can be used with ColorFunction:

MeshStyle  (1)

Color the mesh the same color as the plot:

Use a red mesh in the direction:

Use a red mesh in the direction and a blue mesh in the direction:

Use big red mesh points in the direction:

PlotHighlighting  (7)

Plots have interactive coordinate callouts with the default setting PlotHighlightingAutomatic:

Use PlotHighlightingNone to disable the highlighting for the entire plot:

Use Highlighted[,None] to disable highlighting for a single set:

Move the mouse over the curve to highlight it with a label and droplines to the axes:

Use a ball and label to highlight a specific point in the plot:

Move the mouse over the plot to highlight it with a slice showing values corresponding to the position:

Highlight a particular set of points at a fixed value:

Move the mouse over the plot to highlight it with a slice showing values corresponding to the position:

Use a component that shows the points on the plot closest to the position of the mouse cursor:

Change the size of the default plot markers:

Use arbitrary text for plot markers:

Use explicit graphics for plot markers:

Use the same symbol for all the sets of data:

Explicitly use a symbol and size:

PlotRange  (1)

PlotRange shows all data by default:

Calculate automatic range:

PlotStyle  (4)

Use different style directives:

By default, different styles are chosen for multiple curves:

Explicitly specify the style for different curves:

PlotStyle can be combined with ColorFunction:

PlotStyle can be combined with MeshShading:
