Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/plot-plot_sem.R

Description

Prepare an object of class sem_graph, containing data objects that can be rendered into a SEM graph. Using this function allows users to manually change the default graph specification before plotting it. Input consists of (at least) a layout, and either nodes and edges, or a model object.

prepare_graph(...)

## Default S3 method:
prepare_graph(
  edges = NULL,
  layout = NULL,
  nodes = NULL,
  rect_width = 1.2,
  rect_height = 0.8,
  ellipses_width = 1,
  ellipses_height = 1,
  variance_diameter = 0.8,
  spacing_x = 2,
  spacing_y = 2,
  text_size = 4,
  curvature = 60,
  angle = NULL,
  fix_coord = FALSE,
  ...
)

## S3 method for class 'lavaan'
prepare_graph(
  model,
  edges = get_edges(x = model),
  layout = get_layout(x = model),
  nodes = get_nodes(x = model),
  ...
)

## S3 method for class 'MxModel'
prepare_graph(
  model,
  edges = get_edges(x = model),
  layout = get_layout(x = model),
  nodes = get_nodes(x = model),
  ...
)

## S3 method for class 'character'
prepare_graph(...)

## S3 method for class 'mplus.model'
prepare_graph(
  model,
  edges = get_edges(x = model),
  layout = get_layout(x = model),
  nodes = get_nodes(x = model),
  ...
)

## S3 method for class 'mplusObject'
prepare_graph(
  model,
  edges = get_edges(x = model),
  layout = get_layout(x = model),
  nodes = get_nodes(x = model),
  ...
)

Arguments

...

Additional arguments passed to and from functions.

edges

Object of class 'tidy_edges', or a data.frame with (at least) the columns c("from", "to"), and optionally, c("arrow", "label", "connect_from", "connect_to", "curvature").

layout

A matrix (or data.frame) that describes the layout; see get_layout.

nodes

Optional, object of class 'tidy_nodes', created with the get_nodes function, or a data.frame with (at least) the column c("name"), and optionally, c("shape", "label"). If set to NULL (the default), nodes are inferred from the layout and edges arguments.

rect_width

Width of rectangles (used to display observed variables), Default: 1.2

rect_height

Height of rectangles (used to display observed variables), Default: 0.8

ellipses_width

Width of ellipses (used to display latent variables), Default: 1

ellipses_height

Height of ellipses (used to display latent variables), Default: 1

variance_diameter

Diameter of variance circles, Default: .8

spacing_x

Spacing between columns of the graph, Default: 1

spacing_y

Spacing between rows of the graph, Default: 1

text_size

Point size of text, Default: 4

curvature

Curvature of curved edges. The curve is a circle segment originating in a point that forms a triangle with the two connected points, with angles at the two connected points equal to curvature. To flip a curved edge, use a negative value for curvature. Default: 60

angle

Angle used to connect nodes by the top and bottom. Defaults to NULL, which means Euclidean distance is used to determine the shortest distance between node sides. A numeric value between 0-180 can be provided, where 0 means that only nodes with the same x-coordinates are connected top-to-bottom, and 180 means that all nodes are connected top-to-bottom.

fix_coord

Whether or not to fix the aspect ratio of the graph. Does not work with multi-group or multilevel models. Default: FALSE.

model

Instead of the edges argument, it is also possible to use the model argument and pass an object for which a method exists (e.g., mplus.model or lavaan).

Value

Object of class 'sem_graph'
