I rarely look at the help file first, always start with the dialog box. That
is how I found out this morning in something like two minutes...

Martin,

I got lost with this sentence in h graph hbar
"The over_subopts -- used in over(varname, over_subopts) and, on rare
occasion, in
    yvaroptions(over_subopts) -- are"

I haven't interpreted it as oversubopts can stand alone. My Stata experience
is not so good to grap the sense of a code in a minute...

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...

Martin,

Thanks a lot. Somehow I haven't seen the tree in the forest... I haven't
thought that oversubopts can be used as an option on its own...

Every day some more knowledge...and Stata experience...

Marc may also want to take a look at NJC`s statement here:

You can pass -undocumented- "oversubopts" to -ssc d catplot-, though:


***********
sysuse auto, clear
catplot hbar rep78 foreign, percent(foreign) ///  stack asyvars
ylabel(,labsize(vsmall)) ///  legend(span rows(1))
oversubopts(label(labsize(small)))
***********

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.


Marc
