scott thanks for your reply and suggestion.

i think one way to be clearer is for me to give more information. here's a sample of the data:

i want to produce gr hbar ala [G] page 119 for each varlists in timetest, which i can accomplish easy enough, ending up with 6 hbar graphs. naturally, the size of the hbar would be different for each graph. what i want to achieve is these six graphs but with consistent hbar size accross the six graphs. so overall, i would end up with graphs that have the x-axis (horizontal perimeter) of the graph consistent because i am fixing it with ysc(r(0 35)) ylab(0 (5) 35) but that the y-axis (vertical perimeter) of differing lengths depending on obviously on the no. of tests.

scott's suggested approach, while feasible, is not ideal because some of the tests are not applicable to some of the varlists, resulting, if scott's suggested approach was used, redundant gaps in the various graphs. furthermore, there will be more tests and different testtime varlists to be added in the future.

not only i wanted to do the hbar in the way i have described with consistent hbar size, i was hoping that the answer from statalisters would enable me to apply it to creation of consistent gr hbox size, ala [G] page 152, but again with differing y-axis (vertical perimeter) lengths depending on the no. of tests.

down the road, i am want to combine the six graphs (for now) with gr combine so that i have two panels ala [G] page 142 and page 158 respectively but obviously then each column in the respective panels would be of different vertical size.

after going through [G] i am not certain that i wanted is achievable, at least not on stata 8.2 hence the question to statalisters. there might be a 'lateral thinking' solution to achieve what i envisage but at the moment i am drawing blanks.

hope i have made it clearer. all [G] references are of course stata 8.2. again, thank you in advance.

regards,

bw

No, or at least not to me.

In the following example:

sysuse auto,clear

graph hbar mpg, over(fore) name(gr1,replace)

graph hbar mpg, over(rep) name(gr2,replace)

you would want the bars in the two graphs to be the same size?

One way would be add empty categories so both graphs had the same

number of categories:

sysuse auto,clear

graph hbar mpg, over(fore) name(gr1,replace)

graph hbar mpg, over(rep) name(gr2,replace)

set obs 77

replace fore = -5 in 75

replace fore = .5 in 76

replace fore = 5 in 77

graph hbar mpg, over(fore, relabel( 1 `"" " " ""' 3 `"" " " ""' 5 `""

" " ""')) ///

name(gr3,replace)
