grid.rect(x = unit(0.5, "npc"), y = unit(0.5, "npc"),
          width = unit(1, "npc"), height = unit(1, "npc"),
          just = "centre", hjust = NULL, vjust = NULL,

          gp=gpar(), draw = TRUE, vp = NULL)
rectGrob(x = unit(0.5, "npc"), y = unit(0.5, "npc"),
         width = unit(1, "npc"), height = unit(1, "npc"),
         just = "centre", hjust = NULL, vjust = NULL,
         default.units = "npc", name = NULL,
         gp=gpar(), vp = NULL)

Arguments

x

A numeric vector or unit object specifying x-location.

y

A numeric vector or unit object specifying y-location.

width

A numeric vector or unit object specifying width.

height

A numeric vector or unit object specifying height.

just

The justification of the rectangle relative to its (x, y) location. If there are two values, the first value specifies horizontal justification and the second value specifies vertical justification. Possible string values are: "left", "right", "centre", "center", "bottom", and "top". For numeric values, 0 means left alignment and 1 means right alignment.

hjust

A numeric vector specifying horizontal justification. If specified, overrides the just setting.

vjust

A numeric vector specifying vertical justification. If specified, overrides the just setting.

default.units

A string indicating the default units to use if x, y, width, or height are only given as numeric vectors.

name

A character identifier.

gp

An object of class gpar, typically the output from a call to the function gpar. This is basically a list of graphical parameter settings.

draw

A logical value indicating whether graphics output should be produced.

vp

A Grid viewport object (or NULL).

Details

Both functions create a rect grob (a graphical object describing rectangles), but only grid.rect draws the rectangles (and then only if draw is TRUE).

Value

A rect grob. grid.rect returns the value invisibly.
