After the great help here I have a final problem (bug in R??) with the background color. I would like to put my final drawing on a dark background and thus I would like to use brigt colors for axes etc. This works perfectly with the following script except for the frame around the color bars in the legend. Just give this a try:

data <- data.frame(Year=c(2000,2001,2002),

data.mat <- as.matrix(data)[,2:4]
rownames(data.mat) <- data[['Year']]
data.mat <- t(data.mat)

pdf("testdata.pdf", fg=textcolor)

barplot(data.mat,beside=TRUE,col=rainbow(3),main="Test") legend(x="topleft", colnames(data[,2:4]),fill=rainbow(3), inset=0.05,


You will notice that the frame around the color bars in the legend remains black even if I expect it to be yellow. Did I missed something or is this a bug in the legend drawing routine?

Kind regards
