Thank you Kit, for showing me the correct layering of parentheses on the plot#opts option.

You need to think graphically, not logically in terms of what you're graphing. Your graph has four lines, and there are a number of graphics options that refer to the line number, not where that line came from. This notion is common to many aspects of Stata graphics.

plot2opts(lpattern(dash) color(purple))works for me.

What I'm looking for, so far unsuccessfully, is guidelines on how to specify specific formulas for cline_options for specific values of A and B. The cline_options formulas I specified below were successful for only the plot lines in which A==1 and B==1, or A==0 & B==0. However, but the other plot lines where A==0 & B==1, or A==1 & B==0. remained a solid line in spite of my specification: sts graph if stage==5, by(A B) lpattern(-) xtitle("Survival time in /// months") l2title("Percent surviving") xmtick(0(10)150) /// lpattern("l" if A==1 & B==1) /// lpattern("--" if A==1 & B==0) /// lpattern("--" if A==0 & B==1) /// lpattern("--.#" if A==0 & B==0) ///* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
