PHPlot can draw these types of plots:

Bars (with optional shadows) and Stacked Bars, both vertical and horizontal

Lines

Points (a lot of point shapes are available)

Linepoints (as you might expect, both points and lines)

Area and Stacked Area

Pie (2D or 3D look)

Thinbarline (sometimes also called impulse), both vertical and horizontal

Lines, Points, and Linepoints with Error bars

Squared (steps)

Bubbles

Open/High/Low/Close (shows price changes for a stock, for example)

Boxes (5-number statistical summary)

You specify which type of plot you want with the SetPlotType function.

There are many ways we can change the look and feel of the graph.
Almost every parameter of the graph, including ticks, grids, and data labels,
can be adjusted using PHPlot functions.
A categorized list of these functions can be found in Chapter 6, *PHPlot Functions By Category*.
Each of the functions is described in detail in PHPlot Function Reference.
