# Plot method for a objects of class MCRestimate

### Description

plot.MCRestimate visualizes a 'vote matrix'. A 'vote matrix' is the result of a classification procedure. For every sample (=row) i and every class (=column) j the matrix element [i,j] is the probability or frequency the classification method predicts sample i as a member of class j.

### Usage

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 |

### Arguments

`x` |
Object of S3 class |

`class.factor` |
Factor. Its length must match the number of rows
in |

`rownames.from.object` |
Logical. If TRUE then the rownames of the
matrix or the sample names of |

`sample.order` |
Logical. If TRUE then the samples are ordered by class membership |

`legend` |
Logical. If TRUE then there will be a small legend in the output |

`mypalette` |
vector with length equal to the number of classes. The vector specifies the color for the bar representing the classes. If 'NULL' colors chosen by the author are used. |

`shading` |
the density of shading lines for the rectangles that indicate the groups, in lines per inch. The default value of 'NULL' means that no shading lines are drawn. |

`xlab` |
Character |

`ylab` |
Character |

`cex.axis` |
numeric |

`...` |
Further arguments that are passed on to plot.default |

### Value

The function is called for its side effect, creating a plot on the active graphics device.
