A Graph display is used to display results of a simulation. A Graph has the capability to display multiple series / variables simultaneously. You can also compare the results of different simulations on the same graph.

Usage: To add a Graph to a model, select the Graph tool in the component palette and then click on either the model canvas or the dashboard. Two objects will appear – a graph icon on the model canvas, and the graph display on the dashboard. The graph display and icon are linked, like two sides of the same coin. They don’t move together, but they represent the same graph object. The purpose of the icon on the model canvas is to provide a way to connect the graph to other objects in the model and set its properties. You can have multiple graph objects in one model, and you can have graph objects on different levels of a multi-level model. In addition, a graph display can have multiple pages or tabs. All graph icons look identical, but you can tell them apart by looking at the name. The graph display in the dashboard can be resized by grabbing the little handle on the bottom right.
