panel.number {lattice} | R Documentation |
Control over lattice plots are provided through a collection of user
specifiable functions that perform various tasks during the plotting.
Not all information is available to all functions. The functions
documented here attempt to provide a consistent interface to access
relevant information from within these user specified functions,
namely those specified as the panel
, strip
and
axis
functions.
current.row() current.column() panel.number() packet.number() which.packet() trellis.currentLayout(which = c("packet", "panel"))
which |
whether return value (a matrix) should contain panel numbers or packet numbers, which are usually, but not necessarily, the same (see below for details). |
trellis.currentLayout
returns a matrix with as many rows and
columns as in the layout of panels in the current plot. Entries in
the matrix are integer indices indicating which packet (or panel; see
below) occupies that position, with 0 indicating the absence of a
panel. current.row
and current.column
return integer
indices specifying which row and column in the layout are currently
active. panel.number
returns an integer counting which panel
is being drawn (starting from 1 for the first panel, a.k.a. the panel
order). packet.number
gives the packet number according to the
packet order, which is determined by varying the first conditioning
variable the fastest, then the second, and so on. which.packet
returns the combination of levels of the conditioning variables in the
form of a numeric vector as long as the number of conditioning
variables, with each element an integer indexing the levels of the
corresponding variable.
The availability of these functions make redundant some features
available in earlier versions of lattice, namely optional arguments
called panel.number
and packet.number
that were made
available to panel
and strip
. If you have written such
functions, it should be enough to replace instances of
panel.number
and packet.number
by the corresponding
function calls. You should also remove panel.number
and
packet.number
from the argument list of your function to avoid
a warning.
If these accessor functions are not enough for your needs, feel free to contact the maintainer and ask for more.
