. OK, one bug, one glitch. -Dave On Feb 17, 2009, at 9:17 AM, Nick Cox wrote:

My wording is preserved here, so I will underline that "looks like a glitch" is as much as I said. I prefer not to claim bugs unless I can see the incorrect code (especially if it's mine). Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk David Airey So that is 2 bugs in graph hbox. One I noted in the other thread on - graph hbox- where the justification option in the -graph editor- draws the y axis away from the plot proper, and this bug you describe.

You can do this something similar -- but not identical -- with -stripplot- from SSC. There's also scope for hybridising box plots and strip plots to get over some of the limitations of box plots. For example, sysuse auto egen loq = pctile(mpg), by(foreign) p(25) egen upq = pctile(mpg), by(foreign) p(75) stripplot mpg, ms(none) over(foreign) box(barw(0.2)) addplot(scatter foreign mpg if !inrange(mpg, loq, upq)) Although it's not in the code above, xla(, ang(45) labsize(small)) works with -stripplot- too.tess staffordAs far as I understand, ylabel for "graph hbox" refers to the x-axis, which is the axis that I am trying to modify. The angle suboption does seem to work in over(var2,label(angle(45))), but this modifies the y-axis labels and I am trying to modify the x-axis labels.SteichT@RJRT.comThe ylabel command for hbar is just label() and is a suboptioninsideof the over() option:over(xxx, label(angle(forty_five)))tess staffordWith regards to the "graph hbox" command, I cannot get the suboption"angle()" to work with "ylabel". A simplified version of my code is:graph hbox var1, over(var2) medtype(cline) medline(lcolor(none)) /* */ ylabel(2001.649 "Fa2001" 2002.422 "Sp2002" 2002.649 "Fa2002"2003.422 "Sp2003",labsize(small) angle(45) grid)The "labsize()" suboption seems to work fine, but the "angle()"suboption does nothing. When I change the code to "graph box"instead,"angle()" works fine. Similarly, "angle()" works fine for the other axis as in "over(var2,label(angle(45))). I don't understand why it won't work for the ylabel.Does anyone see anything wrong with my code? If not, is this aglitchin the language? Can we trick it into working? I know I can manually go in and alter the angle of the labels once Stata has generated the graph, but I will likely be making many ofthese graphs over different groups in the data and potentiallytweaking different aspects of them so it would be very time consuming to have to continually manually alter them.I'm using Stata 10/MP, by the way.* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
