Or like this:

sysuse auto
regress mpg c.weight##i.foreign
margins foreign, at(weight=(1760 4840))
marginsplot, noci recast(line)

You could do something like this:

line predict? weight, sort

If you want the fits to be different, you are going to have to produce them separately and then combine them, I believe.

drop predict?

forval i = 0/1 {
	qui regress mpg weight if foreign == `i'
	predict predict`i' if foreign == `i'
	label var predict`i' "`: label (foreign) `i''"

line predict? weight, sort ytitle("`: var label mpg'")

Many thanks, it looks great.
Could I somehow use -lfit- to get the fitted lines only?

From: Nick Cox<>


separate moment, by(brackettype) veryshortlabel
line moment? rotation

and see -help separate-

In Stata 12, I am using the following commands:

twoway (line moment rotation, by(brackettype)) // moment and rotation continuous and brackettype has 4 levels

I like to have all graphs in one plot as shown below but somehow I cannot get on the legend below the x-axis to show the levels of brackettype. It shows "brackettype" for all 4 different color lines. If I use "lfit" instead of "line" it shows lfit instead of brackettype.

twoway (line moment rotation if brackettype==1) ||(line moment rotation if brackettype==2) ||(line moment rotation if brackettype==3) ||(line moment rotation if brackettype==4)

Any advise would be appreciated.
