ANNOTATE

Syntax: ANNOTATE(Text, X, Y[, H[, V]])

Text = a string value of the annotation
X, Y = numeric values representing graph coordinates
H, V = numeric values representing justification

ANNOTATE allows you specify a coordinate at which a label (Text) will be displayed in the data area of a 2-dimensional graph, and also how that label will appear in relation to the coordinate. X and Y represent the coordinates of the label on the graph.

H (horizontal justification) and V (vertical justification) are optional values that represent the text spacing offset of the label. If V is specified, H must also be specified; however, you may specifyH without V.

This is a convenience function for creating strings of the form accepted by the SpreadScript graph annotation mechanism. For more information on annotation see Graphs.

Examples:

ANNOTATE(``Average'', 5/2, 12, 1, 0.5) = ``(2.5, 12, 1.0, 5)Average''

ANNOTATE(``Data Point'', 5, 10)= ``(5, 10)Data Point''

ANNOTATE(``x^2'', 6, 36, -1/4) = ``(6, 36, -0.25)x$^2$''
