# ggplot object

dat <- data.frame(x = 1:5, y = 1:5, p = 1:5, q = factor(1:5),
 r = factor(1:5))
p <- ggplot(dat, aes(x, y, colour = p, size = q, shape = r)) + geom_point()

# without guide specification
p

# Show colorbar guide for colour.
# All these examples below have a same effect.

p + guides(colour = "colorbar", size = "legend", shape = "legend")

  shape = guide_legend())

 scale_shape(guide = "legend")

# Guides are integrated where possible

p + guides(colour = guide_legend("title"), size = guide_legend("title"),
  shape = guide_legend("title"))
# same as
g <- guide_legend("title")
p + guides(colour = g, size = g, shape = g)

p + theme(legend.position = "bottom")

# position of guides

p + theme(legend.position = "bottom", legend.box = "horizontal")

# Set order for multiple guides

qplot(data = mpg, x = displ, y = cty, size = hwy, colour = cyl, shape = drv) +
  guides(colour = guide_colourbar(order = 1),
         alpha = guide_legend(order = 2),
         size = guide_legend(order = 3))
