[P] _ms_display -- Display a matrix stripe element for coefficient tables


_ms_display , element(#) [matrix(name) row equation(eqid) width(#) indent(#) first noconstant noname novbar v0bar nov1bar nolevel nextra(#) wextra(#) display_options]


_ms_display displays column stripe information in the format used by the coefficient tables of Stata's standard estimation commands. It also returns information about the specified element in the column stripe on e(b).


element(#) specifies that the information come from the #th element in the first equation. element() is required.

matrix(name) specifies that _ms_display report information from the column stripe associated with the named matrix. The default matrix is e(b).

row specifies that the information come from the row stripe. The default is the column stripe.

equation(eqid) specifies that element(#) refer to the #th element within the identified equation. The default is the first equation.

width(#) affects how the returned strings are split or abbreviated. The default is width(12).

indent(#) specifies that the output be indented # characters. The default is indent(0).

first indicates that this element should be considered the first of its group. The variable name is displayed for standard variables with time-series operators or simple factor variables. The interaction variables are displayed for interactions. This heading information is displayed in addition to the usual time-series operators and factor levels. This option has no effect for standard variables (without time-series operators).

noconstant indicates that _cons elements not be displayed.

noname suppresses the term name from being displayed.

novbar suppresses the vertical bar that usually follows the title.

v0bar adds a vertical bar preceding the title.

nov1bar suppresses the vertical bar that usually follows the split pieces of the title when it is spread over multiple lines.

nolevel suppresses outputting the level information for factor variables and interactions containing factor variables.

nextra(#) and wextra(#) specify extra column information for filling in the vertical bars when the title is spread over multiple lines.

nextra(#) specifies that there be # extra columns following the title. The default is nextra(0).

wextra(#) specifies that the extra columns following the title have a common width of # characters. The default is wextra(0).

display_options: noomitted, vsquish, noemptycells, baselevels, allbaselevels; see [R] estimation options.

Stored results

_ms_display stores the following in r():
