## Display the BLS regression in a (X,Y) plot

### Description

Display the BLS regression in a (X,Y) plot with or without hyperbolic confidence and/or predictive intervals, and an acceptance interval.

### Usage

```
XY.plot(BLS.results = NULL, xname = "X", yname = "Y", antilog = NULL,
accept.int = 0, accept.int.perc = FALSE, accept.int.threshold = NULL,
graph.int = c("CB", "PI"), include.int = FALSE, col.BLS = 1, col.CI = 2,
col.CB = 3, col.PI = 4, col.GI = 5, lty.BLS = 1, lty.CI = 1,
lty.CB = 1, lty.PI = 1, lty.GI = 1, ...)
```

### Arguments

`BLS.results` |
a BLS or BLS.ht class object (obtained with the |

`xname` |
a character string for the name of the X device. |

`yname` |
a character string for the name of the Y device. |

`antilog` |
a character string or a numeric value. This argument display the BLS results on the initial scales on the (X,Y) plot if a logarithmic transformation was used prior to the BLS function. Options available are: 10 or "e". |

`accept.int` |
a numeric vector (length equal 1 or 2) for the value of Δ: Y = X ± Δ to assess whether two devices (X and Y) are equivalent or not. Two values of Δ can be entered to take into account the case where the equivalence threshold changes along the X axis. |

`accept.int.perc` |
a logical variable (TRUE or FALSE) whether Δ needs to be interpreted in percentage: Y = X ± Δ %. |

`accept.int.threshold` |
a numeric value for the X threshold where the value of Δ changes if two Δ values are used in |

`graph.int` |
a character vector for the hyperbolic curves to be displayed on the graph. Options are: "CI" (Confidence Intervals),"CB" (Confidence Bands),"PI" (Predictive Intervals),"GI" (Generalised Intervals). |

`include.int` |
a logical variable whether the hyperbolic intervals should lie entirely in the plot. |

`col.BLS` |
a character string or a numeric variable for the colour of the BLS regression line. |

`col.CI` |
a character string or a numeric variable for the colour of the confidence intervals. |

`col.CB` |
a character string or a numeric variable for the colour of the confidence bands. |

`col.PI` |
a character string or a numeric variable for the colour of the predictive intervals. |

`col.GI` |
a character string or a numeric variable for the colour of the generalized intervals. |

`lty.BLS` |
a numeric variable for the type of line of the BLS regression line. |

`lty.CI` |
a numeric variable for the type of line for the confidence intervals. |

`lty.CB` |
a numeric variable for the type of line for the confidence bands. |

`lty.PI` |
a numeric variable for the type of line for the predictive intervals. |

`lty.GI` |
a numeric variable for the type of line for the generalized intervals. |

`...` |
the common arguments from 'plot' or 'par' that may be used additionaly, such as xlim, ylim, xlab, ylab. |

### Details

The BLS.result argument is mandatory.

### Value

An (X,Y) plot in a new window.

### Note

The limits of the axes and their labels are set automatically by the function. To compare different plots with fixed limits, use xlim and ylim. To write customized labels, use xlab and ylab.
