multLines: Plot Multiple Lines In Hmisc: Harrell Miscellaneous

Description

Plots multiple lines based on a vector `x` and a matrix `y`, draws thin vertical lines connecting limits represented by columns of `y` beyond the first. It is assumed that either (1) the second and third columns of `y` represent lower and upper confidence limits, or that (2) there is an even number of columns beyond the first and these represent ascending quantiles that are symmetrically arranged around 0.5. If `options(grType='plotly')` is in effect, uses `plotly` graphics instead of `grid` or base graphics. For `plotly` you may want to set the list of possible colors, etc. using `pobj=plot_ly(colors=...)`. `lwd,lty,lwd.vert` are ignored under `plotly`.

Usage

 ```1 2 3 4 5``` ```multLines(x, y, pos = c('left', 'right'), col='gray', lwd=1, lty=1, lwd.vert = .85, lty.vert = 1, alpha = 0.4, grid = FALSE, pobj=plotly::plot_ly(), xlim, name=colnames(y)[1], legendgroup=name, showlegend=TRUE, ...) ```

Arguments

 `x` a numeric vector `y` a numeric matrix with number of rows equal to the number of `x` elements `pos` when `pos='left'` the vertical lines are drawn, right to left, to the left of the point `(x, y[,1)`. Otherwise lines are drawn left to right to the right of the point. `col` a color used to connect `(x, y[,1])` pairs. The same color but with transparency given by the `alpha` argument is used to draw the vertical lines `lwd` line width for main lines `lty` line types for main lines `lwd.vert` line width for vertical lines `lty.vert` line type for vertical lines `alpha` transparency `grid` set to `TRUE` when using `grid`/`lattice` `pobj` an already started `plotly` object to add to `xlim` global x-axis limits (required if using `plotly`) `name` trace name if using `plotly` `legendgroup` legend group name if using `plotly` `showlegend` whether or not to show traces in legend, if using `plotly` `...` passed to `add_lines` or `add_segments` if using `plotly`

Examples

 ```1 2 3 4 5 6 7``` ```if (requireNamespace("plotly")) { x <- 1:4 y <- cbind(x, x-3, x-2, x-1, x+1, x+2, x+3) plot(NA, NA, xlim=c(1,4), ylim=c(-2, 7)) multLines(x, y, col='blue') multLines(x, y, col='red', pos='right') } ```
