I think Ricardo is not exploring very much. 

Two concrete suggestions: 

1. -plotregion(lcolor(none))- still is available. 

. graph bar mpg weight, plotregion(lcolor(none)) 

2. If that's not sufficient, a fake -over()- category is one easy fudge:


. gen one = 1

. graph bar mpg weight, plotregion(lcolor(none)) over(one, axis(off))

I'll happily hear of more elegant command language alternatives to 2.

I think Nick is missing the point. I am not using the over() option, in
which case it would be easy to eliminate the x-axis. I have a series of
variable that are to be plotted on the same bar plot. Something like my
previous example:

. graph bar  price  weight ...
