Could someone answer if we can plot a graph in workbench using APDL commands? For example, an array is created to store the force and displacements of a model using APDL command snippet, and by using *VPLOT command can we plot a graph against force and the displacement values? If so, where to check the generated graph in Workbench GUI?

A better alternative for WB/Mechnaical, one should use the chart object to create force vs displacement graph (see below):

My requirement is different here. I want to plot a graph based on APDL commands, once I have Eqivalent stresses at different design points. For this I trie to use *VPLOT,Mvalue_1(1,2),Mvalue_1(1,4), where Mvalue_1 is an array.
For the above command I can see below lines from the solve.out file, however I am not sure where to check if the graph is plotted in th workbench GUI. Kindly advice me further.
GRAPHIC DISPLAY OF MATRIX= Mvalue_1(1,4)
VECTOR FOR X AXIS= Mvalue_1(1,2)
NUMBER OF POINTS= 21 NUMBER OF CURVES= 1

See this post
and the command,
In the apdl help manual or search for examples on the internet:

I tried to use below commands for generating the graphs at different design points, however the graph is shown consisting of histograms (as shown below). Could you please let me know which commands can be added to make it a line graph (as required).
