Thanks Svend, for clarifying how to sequence the display commands within parentheses for the lpattern and lcolor options.



Michael McCulloch observed that the following syntax -
which works with Stata 10 - gives an error message with
Stata 9.2.

   sts graph, by(drug) ///
      plot1opts(lpattern(l) lcolor(black)) ///
      plot2opts(lpattern(-) lcolor(black)) ///
      plot3opts(lpattern(dot) lcolor(black))

         failure _d:  died == 1
   analysis time _t:  studytime
option plot1opts() not allowed
r(198);

However, with Stata 9.2 the following syntax works (but it
does not work with Stata 10):

   sts graph, by(drug) lpattern(l - dot) lcolor(black black black)

Hope this helps
Svend
