text.col

The colour of additional text

text.cex

The size of additional text

text.fontface

The fontface for additional text

height

Figure height, defaults to 6 inches

width

Figure width, defaults to 6 inches

size.units

Figure units, defaults to inches

resolution

Figure resolution in dpi, defaults to 1600

enable.warnings

Print warnings if set to TRUE, defaults to FALSE

description

Short description of image/plot; default NULL.

style

defaults to “BoutrosLab”, also accepts “Nature”, which changes parameters according to Nature formatting requirements

preload.default

ability to set multiple sets of diffrent defaults depending on publication needs

use.legacy.settings

boolean to set wheter or not to use legacy mode settings (font)

inside.legend.auto

boolean specifying whether or not to use the automatic inside legend function

Value

If filename is NULL then returns the trellis object, otherwise creates a plot and returns a 0/1 success code.

Warning

If this function is called without capturing the return value, or specifying a filename, it may crash while trying to draw the histogram. In particular, if a script that uses such a call of create histogram is called by reading the script in from the command line, it will fail badly, with an error message about unavailable fonts:

    Error in grid.Call.graphics("L_text", as.graphicsAnnot(x$label), x$x,  )
        Invalid font type
    Calls: print ... drawDetails.text -> grid.Call.graphics -> .Call.graphics
