# Values

Retrieves individual point data on any curve in the active window. When a point is selected, the point data is displayed in the dialog.

From the Line Chart ribbon, click the Values tool.

There are three ways to retrieve point data from a curve:

- Pick a point on a curve.
- Locate a point using the Navigation Options.
- Select a point from the point list.

## Navigation Options

The range boundaries can also be picked using the Navigation Options.

**Click****To Find**- Navigate to the first or last point on the curve.
- Navigate to the previous or next point on the curve.
- Maximum
- The global maximum of the curve.
- The previous and next local maximum.
- Minimum
- The global minimum of the curve.
- The previous and next local minimum.
- Select the Vector
- The corresponding point on the next curve.

## Point Table

The point table displays the XY data points, or the phase and magnitude data points,
for the selected curve. The following information is displayed in the point
table:

- The point number.
- The X-value and the Y-value for the selected point.
- The phase-value and the mag-value for each point.

For vector plots, frequency is included in the value table.

## Point Data

The following data is displayed when a point is picked from the point table:

- Curve
- The name of the curve.
- Point
- The number of the data point.
- Theta (Curve-dependent)
- The theta value of the data point.
- X
- The X value of the data point.
- Y
- The Y value of the data point.
- r (Curve-dependent)
- The r value of the data point.
- Slope
- An estimate of the slope of the curve at the selected point.
- Time
- The time step of the data point (if available).
- Freq (Curve-dependent)
- The current animation time step (frequency) and not the frequency of the picked point.

## Displaying Point Data with Scaling Options

Under Scaling Options, select the vector to display the point data.

- Linear
- db10, to display data in decibels
- db20, to display data in decibels

Select Sync Coordinate Data with Axis Format to show coordinate info curve values in the same format (scientific, fixed) as used by the axis. See the Axes panel for more information on defining the axes.
