Dear Pedro,

Sorting your data before plotting it will probably sort your problem.

plotdata2 <- plotdata2[order(plotdata2$group), ]

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of.

The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.

Onderwerp: [R] ggplot2 - legend for fill coulours Urgentie: Hoog

Dear All,

I am trying to build a stacked bar plot, where I define the colours to use.

I have asked this before, and I was using a solution in http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.r.general/100649/focus=100673 (thanks, Thierry).

However, it looks this works only when the data are in the sequence of the levels in the factor defining the fill colours. When the sequence is different, the legend gets "scrambled", in that the order of the colours does not match the labels.

My code is below. Can anyone tell me how to get around this? (R 2.2.6 for Windows, ggplot2 version 2_0.5.7)

Thanks,
Pedro

scaleY<-scale_y_continuous(limits=c(0,4), expand=c(0,0)) plot1<-plot0+layer1 +scaleFill +scaleY
