I'm not sure what you're asking. Liveview mode shows the screen you're about to take before you press the shutter button. A histogram is a graphical representation of the photo after it's taken. You can't get a histogram of the scene before you take the photo.
You can, however, press the > playback button to view the photo you just took while in Liveview mode and scroll down to see the histogram. You return to Liveview as soon as you half press the shutter button or try to focus.
First of of thank you.... I like taking landscapes and at times sunrises in the manual-mode. Read that it is preferable that the histogram is slightly on the right to get more details, etc. So I thought I could review the histogram before taking the shot. I bracket so much I have tough time sorting afterwords. Want to try to cut done. Digital is great, but in film days I think we spent more time before pressing the shutter. Ben
As do the D4 and D800, which I find quite handy for video. Not sure about other Nikon cameras, but to check for this you can put it into LiveView and cycle through the displays using the info button. If it's there, one of the display modes will be a live histogram.

Thanks Steve. It works fine on my D800. It's detailed in the D800 manual but not the D7100 or D600.
