Defines functions plot.iptw

Documented in plot.iptw

#' Plots for `iptw` objects
#' This function produces a collection of diagnostic plots for `iptw` objects.
#' This function produces lattice-style graphics of diagnostic plots.
#' @param x An `iptw` object.
#' @param plots An indicator of which type of plot is desired. The options are
#' * `"optimize" or 1` A plot of the balance criteria as a function of the GBM 
#'   iteration.
#' * `"boxplot" or 2` Boxplots of the propensity scores for the treatment and 
#'   control cases
#' * `"es" or 3` Plots of the standardized effect size of the pre-treatment 
#'   variables before and after reweighing
#' * `"t" or 4` Plots of the p-values from t-statistics comparing means of 
#'   treated and control subjects for pretreatment variables, before and after 
#'   weighting.
#' * `"ks" or 5` Plots of the p-values from Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistics 
#'   comparing distributions of pretreatment variables of treated and control 
#'   subjects, before and after weighting.
#' @param subset Used to restrict which of the `stop.method`s will be used 
#'   in the figure. For example `subset = c(1,3)` would indicate that the 
#'   first and third `stop.method`s (in alphabetical order of those specified 
#'   in the original call to `iptw`) should be included in the figure.
#' @param color If `color = FALSE`, figures will be gray scale. Default: `TRUE`.
#' @param timePeriods The number of distinct time points. If `NULL`, this is assumed to be the number
#'   of `ps` objects (i.e., the number of distinct time points).
#' @param multiPage When multiple frames of a figure are produced, `multiPage = TRUE` will print each
#'   frame on a different page. This is intended for situations where the graphical output is being
#'   saved to a file. Default: `FALSE`.
#' @param figureRows The figure rows, passed to [displayPlots]. Default: `NULL`.
#' @param hline Arguments passed to `panel.abline`.
#' @param ... Additional arguments.
