Subject: plot legend outside the grid

Thanks for the pointers... I managed to get everything to look and feel the way I want except for the legend to plot outside the grid... Thanks for the note on the par, but I'm not able to it to plot outside the plot grid..

dataFrame <- as.data.frame(t(structure(c(

Of course!

stripchart() is a base graphics function and tehrefore has available to it the base graphics functionality, like (the base graphics function, **not** the lattice argument) legend(). See ?legend in the graphics package. Note the use of locator() for positioning the legend.

Note: By default the legend will be clipped to the plot region. If you wish to have a legend outside the plot region set the xpd parameter of par to TRUE or NA prior to plotting.
