Does anyone > know how to do this? In Stata gridlines are always in the background, which fits its logic: they are the grid on top of which the graphs are drawn. Personally, I would not try to draw the gridlines on top, but you can with the help of new calls to -twoway function- to draw horizontal or vertical lines where the grid lines are. I adapted your example so I need to add both horizontal and one vertical grid line: *--------------------------------- begin example --------------------------------- ssc install freduse, replace freduse MPRIME, clear gen ym = mofd(daten) tsset ym, monthly twoway /// function y=20.705,range(119 130) recast(area) color(gs12) base(4.7025) || /// function y=20.705,range(166 182) recast(area) color(gs12) base(4.7025) || /// function y=20.705,range(240 274) recast(area) color(gs12) base(4.7025) || /// function y= 5 ,range(119 274) lstyle(grid) || /// function y=10 ,range(119 274) lstyle(grid) || /// function y=15 ,range(119 274) lstyle(grid) || /// function y=20 ,range(119 274) lstyle(grid) || /// function y=ym(1980,11), range(4.7025 20.705) horizontal lstyle(grid) || /// tsline MPRIME if tin(1970m1,1990m1), xlabel(,format(%tm)) lstyle(p1) /// legend(order(5 1 "Recession")) tlabel(,grid) scheme(s2color) *---------------------------------- end example ---------------------------------- (For more on examples I sent to the Statalist see: http://www.maartenbuis.nl/example_faq ) Hope this helps, Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
