gPath: Concatenate Grob Names

Description Usage Arguments Details Value See Also Examples


This function can be used to generate a grob path for use in grid.edit and friends.

A grob path is a list of nested grob names.





Character values which are grob names.


Grob names must only be unique amongst grobs which share the same parent in a gTree.

This function can be used to generate a specification for a grob that includes the grob's parent's name (and the name of its parent and so on).

For interactive use, it is possible to directly specify a path, but it is strongly recommended that this function is used otherwise in case the path separator is changed in future versions of grid.


A gPath object.
