View source: R/barlabels.R

Description

Displays labels on a plot, usually a bar plot.

Usage

1
 barlabels(xpos,ypos,labels=NULL,cex=1,prop=0.5,miny=0,offset=0,...)

Arguments

xpos

A vector, matrix or data frame of x positions for the labels.

ypos

A vector, matrix or data frame of y positions for the labels.

labels

The labels to display. Defaults to the values of y.

cex

Relative size of the labels. See text.

prop

The proportion of ypos at which to place the labels. Defaults to 0.5 (the middle).

miny

The minimum value at which to display labels.

offset

Amount to horizontally offset successive labels in case of vertical overlaps.

...

Extra arguments passed to boxed.labels.

Details

barlabels places labels on a plot at horizontal positions xpos and vertical positions ypos * pos. The typical use of this function is to place labels on bars, by default in the middle of the bars.

To put labels just over the tops of the bars, set prop to 1 and add a constant amount to ypos.

Value

nil
