Re: [R] xyplot auto.key issue

Hi Deepayan,

Thanks for the reply, but when I enter the " type = "b" " code into the auto.key
(see below) command I get the following message:

Error in valid.pch(x$pch) : zero-length 'pch'

Any suggestions?

xyplot(

#basic settings

	bias ~ sample_size | measure,
	data = bias,
	groups = exp_tau,
	type = "b",
	pch = c(1,2,3,4,5),
	xlab = "Sample Size",
	ylab = "Bias (ms)",

#make strips transparent
strip = function(bg, ...) strip.default(bg = 'transparent', ...),
# tweak scales
scales=list( x=list( at = c(20, 40, 60), tck = c(1,0), alternating = F ), y=list( at = c(-50, -25, 0, 25, 50), tck = c(1,0), alternating = F ) ),
# tell key to match symbols to those used in the plot
par.settings = list( superpose.symbol = list( cex = .8, pch = c(1,2,3,4,5) ) ),
# key settings
auto.key = list ( type = "b", lines = T, border = T, cex.title = 1.2, title = "Expected Tau", text = c("30 ms", "80 ms", "130 ms", "180 ms", "230 ms"), space = "right" )

)
