View source: R/plot_text_calls.R

Description

heading plots 1 or more text strings (provided as a character vector labels) as a heading to an (existing or new) plot and places a colored box behind each label to mark it (i.e., highlighting the heading).

Usage

heading(labels, x = 0, y = 0.8, y_layout = "flush", col = "black",
  col_bg = "default", cex = 2, font = 2, new_plot = "slide")

Arguments

labels

A character vector specifying the text labels to be plotted.

x

A numeric vector of x-coordinates at which the text labels in labels should be written. If the lengths of x and y differ, the shorter one is recycled. Default: x = 0.

y

A numeric vector of y-coordinates at which the text labels in labels should be written. If the lengths of x and y differ, the shorter one is recycled. Default: y = .8.

y_layout

A numeric value or vector for the vertical spacing of labels in labels. 2 special values are "even" (i.e., even distribution of labels across available y-space) and "flush" (i.e., no space between adjacent labels, or y_layout = 0). Default: y_layout = "flush".

col

The color(s) of the text label(s). Default: col_lbl = "black".

col_bg

The color(s) to highlight or fill the rectangle(s) with. Default: col_bg = "default" (to automatically select different shades of pal_seeblau).

cex

Numeric character expansion factor(s), multiplied by par("cex") to yield the character size(s). Default: cex = 2.

font

The font type(s) to be used. Default: font = 2 (i.e., bold).

new_plot

Boolean: Should a new plot be generated? Set to "blank" or "slide" to create a new plot, and to "none" to add to an existing plot. Default: new_plot = "slide" (i.e., create a new slide).

Details

Text formatting parameters (like col, col_bg, cex, font) are recycled to match length(labels).

heading uses the base graphics system graphics::.

heading(labels = c("This is a headline", "containing two lines."))

# Note the warning:
heading(labels = c("Headlines", "with 3 or more lines", 
                 "should not be arranged", "in such a step-wise fashion.")) 

# Avoiding the warning:
heading(labels = c("Headlines with", "3 or more lines should", 
                   "not be arranged", "in a step-wise fashion."))

# Using non-default colors:
heading(labels = c("Ene,", "mene, miste,", "es rappelt", "in der Kiste."), 
        cex = 1.6, col = "white", col_bg = usecol(c(Pinky, Seegruen, Bordeaux, Karpfenblau)))
