st: How to force stata to use different line pattern |

I'm writing a new command that produce a graph and allow the use of by() option. However, given that I can not determine a priori the number of mofalities of the by(variable) I can not set the line pattern of the outputed graph. My question is how to force stata to use different line pattern in the graph. Below you find a piece of my ado file local listvar "`listvar' `newvar`i''" // set the list of variable used in the graph ** and here is my graph command if "`graph'" != "" { qui gen `p'=`pvar' label variable `p' "uniform distribution curve" gen byte `pe'=1 label variable `pe' "perfect equality line" if `nv' > 1 { local yti `"yti("`curvelabel' `varlist' (by `by')")"' } twoway scatter `listvar' `pvar' if `touse' , /// ms(i ..) c(l ..) `yti' legend(col(1)) `options' || line `pe' `pvar' , lpattern(dot) || line `p' `p' , lpattern(dash_dot) } -- AbdelRahmen El Lahga Assistant Professor University of Tunis * * 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/
