Default Panel Function for dotplot


Default panel function for dotplot.


panel.dotplot(x, y, horizontal = TRUE,
              pch, col, lty, lwd, 
              col.line, levels.fos,
              groups = NULL,


x,y variables to be plotted in the panel. Typically y is the ‘factor’
horizontal logical. If FALSE, the plot is ‘transposed’ in the sense that the behaviours of x and y are switched. x is now the ‘factor’. Interpretation of other arguments change accordingly. See documentation of bwplot for a fuller explanation.
pch, col, lty, lwd, col.line graphical parameters
levels.fos locations where reference lines will be drawn
groups grouping variable (affects graphical parameters)
... extra parameters, passed to panel.xyplot which is responsible for drawing the foreground points (panel.dotplot only draws the background reference lines).


Creates (possibly grouped) Dotplot of x against y or vice versa
