Stata has different modes of complaining here, depending on whether you
specified -tw- or not (for one -scatter- that should not make much of a
difference in terms of output)

***************
sysuse auto, clear

scatter weight price , xline(5000, lwidth(vthin))

scatter weight price , xline (5000, lwidth(vthin))
parentheses do not balance

tw (scatter weight price) , xline (5000, lwidth(vthin))
) required
***************


Best,
Martin

Subject: st: xline options

I am using xline to add a vertical line to my twoway plot. It works fine
except if I try to specify any options for the xline, in which case I get an
error message.

graph twoway (line gl1 p1, sort) (line gl2 p2, sort) , xline (0.3) 

works just fine, but if I try to modify the xline using established options,
e.g.

graph twoway (line gl1 p1, sort) (line gl2 p2, sort), xline (0.3,
lpattern(dash))

I get the error message:
) required
r(100);

The coding seems to me to be the same as that in the help file. I can't see
what the problem is or how to solve it?

Thanks,

Gisella
