<> You need a certain level of experience to tell that there must be more to the command than meets the eye in its help file. The sentence in -h catplot- "graph_options refers to options of graph bar, graph hbar or graph dot as appropriate. by() is one useful example." tells you that it is worth investigating. At the same time, you know that Nick`s -program- is a derivative of an existing -graph- command, so you can -trace- the thing and see that it issues a call to a certain official command. Once you know that, you look at the code itself and determine how you can add options to that call...

I haven't thought that oversubopts can be used as an option on its own... Every day some more knowledge...and Stata experience...

Juni 2010 11:24 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: ssc catplot control of label of yaxis Nick, I might be again missing some features or am not carefully enough reading the help files, but I have problems to control labels of the y-axis when I use catplot (ssc) (I would like to avoid to use the graph editor...). I tried several options but I cannot get a solution (besides using the graph editor). My code looks like: sysuse auto catplot hbar rep78 foreign, percent(foreign) stack asyvars ylabel(,labsize(vsmall)) legend(span rows(1)) ylabel controls the x-axis labels; but if xlabel spcified: xlabels(,labsize(vsmall)) not allowed, xaxis1 does not exist The yvar-option does not work either: catplot hbar rep78 foreign, percent(foreign) stack asyvars ylabel(,labsize(vsmall)) legend(span rows(1)) yvar(label(labs(vsmall))) Thanks for your help again.
