Annotation: Custom grob.

This is a special geom intended for use as static annnotations that are the same in every panel. These anotations will not affect scales (i.e. the x and y axes will not grow to cover the range of the grob, and the grob will not be modified by any ggplot settings or mappings).

Usage
annotation_custom(grob, xmin = -Inf, xmax = Inf,
    ymin = -Inf, ymax = Inf)
Arguments
grob
grob to display
xmin,xmax
x location (in data coordinates) giving horizontal location of raster
ymin,ymax
y location (in data coordinates) giving vertical location of raster
Details

Most useful for adding tables, inset plots, and other grid-based decorations.

Note

annotation_custom expects the grob to fill the entire viewport defined by xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax. Grobs with a different (absolute) size will be center-justified in that region. Inf values can be used to fill the full plot panel (see examples).

# Dummy plot
base <- qplot(1:10, 1:10, geom = "blank") + theme_bw()
# Adding a table
require(gridExtra)
base + annotation_custom(grob = tableGrob(head(iris[ ,1:3])),
        xmin = 3, xmax = 6, ymin = 2, ymax = 8)
# full panel
base + annotation_custom(grob = roundrectGrob(),
          xmin = -Inf, xmax = Inf, ymin = -Inf, ymax = Inf)
# Inset plot
g <- ggplotGrob(qplot(1, 1) +
  theme(plot.background = element_rect(colour = "black")))
base +
  annotation_custom(grob = g, xmin = 1, xmax = 10, ymin = 8, ymax = 10)
