element_textbox: Theme element that enables markdown text in a box.

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/element-textbox.R

Description

The theme elements element_textbox() and element_textbox_simple() enable Markdown text in a box, with word wrap. Both functions implement exactly the same functionality; they only differ in the default values for the various element values. element_textbox() sets all values that are not specified to NULL, as is the usual practice in ggplot2 themes. These missing values are usually completed by inheritance from parent theme elements. By contrast, element_textbox_simple() provides meaningful default values for many of the values that are not usually defined in ggplot2 themes. This makes it simpler to use a textbox element in the context of an existing theme.

Arguments

family

Font family

face

Font face

size

Font size (in pt)

colour, color

Text color

fill

Fill color of the enclosing box

box.colour, box.color

Line color of the enclosing box (if different from the text color)

linetype

Line type of the enclosing box (like lty in base R)

linewidth

Line width of the enclosing box (measured in mm, just like size in ggplot2::element_line()).

hjust

Horizontal justification

vjust

Vertical justification

halign

Horizontal justification

valign

Vertical justification

lineheight

Line height, in multiples of the font size

padding, margin

Padding and margins around the text box. See gridtext::textbox_grob() for details.

width, height

Unit objects specifying the width and height of the textbox, as in gridtext::textbox_grob().

minwidth, minheight, maxwidth, maxheight

Min and max values for width and height. Set to NULL to impose neither a minimum nor a maximum.

r

Unit value specifying the corner radius of the box

orientation

Orientation of the text box. See gridtext::textbox_grob() for details.

debug

Not implemented.

inherit.blank

See ggplot2::margin() for details.

Value

A ggplot2 theme element that can be used inside a ggplot2::theme() call.
