  object,
  indata = NULL,
  xname,
  group = NULL,
  legend = TRUE,
  legend.space = "top",
  legend.ncol = 2,
  ...
)

Arguments

object

Either an mlwinfitIGLS-class or mlwinfitMCMC-class object.

indata

A data.frame object containing the data. If not specified, data is extracted from the object.

xname

The name of variable to be plotted.

group

A character string or a sequence of length equivalent to rows of data to plot. group = NULL by default.

legend

A logical value indicating whether a legend for group is to be added.

legend.space

A character string specifies one of the four sides, which can be one of 'top', 'bottom', 'left' and 'right'. Default, legend.space = 'top'.

legend.ncol

An integer specifies a number of columns, possibly divided into blocks, each containing some rows. Default, legend.ncol = 2.

...

Other arguments to be passed to xyplot.

## Not run: 
library(R2MLwiN)
# NOTE: if MLwiN not saved in location R2MLwiN defaults to, specify path via:
# options(MLwiN_path = 'path/to/MLwiN vX.XX/')
# If using R2MLwiN via WINE, the path may look like this:
# options(MLwiN_path = '/home/USERNAME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/MLwiN vX.XX/')

## Read alevchem data
data(alevchem, package = "R2MLwiN")

alevchem$gcseav <- alevchem$gcse_tot/alevchem$gcse_no - 6
# Avoids warning when fitting factor as continuous response:
alevchem$a_point_num <- as.numeric(alevchem$a_point)

## Example: A-level Chemistry
(mymodel <- runMLwiN(a_point_num ~ 1 + gcseav + I(gcseav^2) + I(gcseav^3)
                     + gender + (1 | pupil), estoptions = list(EstM = 1,  resi.store = TRUE),
                     data = alevchem))
                     
predCurves(mymodel, xname = "gcseav", group = "genderfemale")
