Continuous colour bar guide

Colour bar guide shows continuous color scales mapped onto values. Colour bar is available with scale_fill and scale_colour. For more information, see the inspiration for this function: Matlab's colorbar function.

Usage
guide_colourbar(title = waiver(), title.position = NULL,
  title.theme = NULL, title.hjust = NULL, title.vjust = NULL,
  label = TRUE, label.position = NULL, label.theme = NULL,
  label.hjust = NULL, label.vjust = NULL, barwidth = NULL,
  barheight = NULL, nbin = 20, raster = TRUE, frame.colour = NULL,
  frame.linewidth = 0.5, frame.linetype = 1, ticks = TRUE,
  ticks.colour = "white", ticks.linewidth = 0.5, draw.ulim = TRUE,
  draw.llim = TRUE, direction = NULL, default.unit = "line",
  reverse = FALSE, order = 0, available_aes = c("colour", "color",
  "fill"), ...)

guide_colorbar(title = waiver(), title.position = NULL, title.theme = NULL, title.hjust = NULL, title.vjust = NULL, label = TRUE, label.position = NULL, label.theme = NULL, label.hjust = NULL, label.vjust = NULL, barwidth = NULL, barheight = NULL, nbin = 20, raster = TRUE, frame.colour = NULL, frame.linewidth = 0.5, frame.linetype = 1, ticks = TRUE, ticks.colour = "white", ticks.linewidth = 0.5, draw.ulim = TRUE, draw.llim = TRUE, direction = NULL, default.unit = "line", reverse = FALSE, order = 0, available_aes = c("colour", "color", "fill"), ...)

Arguments
title

A character string or expression indicating a title of guide. If NULL, the title is not shown. By default (waiver()), the name of the scale object or the name specified in labs() is used for the title.

title.position

A character string indicating the position of a title. One of "top" (default for a vertical guide), "bottom", "left" (default for a horizontal guide), or "right."

title.theme

A theme object for rendering the title text. Usually the object of element_text() is expected. By default, the theme is specified by legend.title in theme() or theme.

title.hjust

A number specifying horizontal justification of the title text.

title.vjust

A number specifying vertical justification of the title text.

label

logical. If TRUE then the labels are drawn. If FALSE then the labels are invisible.

label.position

A character string indicating the position of a label. One of "top", "bottom" (default for horizontal guide), "left", or "right" (default for vertical guide).

label.theme

A theme object for rendering the label text. Usually the object of element_text() is expected. By default, the theme is specified by legend.text in theme() or theme.

label.hjust

A numeric specifying horizontal justification of the label text.

label.vjust

A numeric specifying vertical justification of the label text.

barwidth

A numeric or a grid::unit() object specifying the width of the colorbar. Default value is legend.key.width or legend.key.size in theme() or theme.

barheight

A numeric or a grid::unit() object specifying the height of the colorbar. Default value is legend.key.height or legend.key.size in theme() or theme.

nbin

A numeric specifying the number of bins for drawing colorbar. A smoother colorbar for a larger value.

raster

A logical. If TRUE then the colorbar is rendered as a raster object. If FALSE then the colorbar is rendered as a set of rectangles. Note that not all graphics devices are capable of rendering raster image.

frame.colour

A string specifying the colour of the frame drawn around the bar. If NULL (the default), no frame is drawn.

frame.linewidth

A numeric specifying the width of the frame drawn around the bar.

frame.linetype

A numeric specifying the linetype of the frame drawn around the bar.

ticks

A logical specifying if tick marks on colorbar should be visible.

ticks.colour

A string specifying the color of the tick marks.

ticks.linewidth

A numeric specifying the width of the tick marks.

draw.ulim

A logical specifying if the upper limit tick marks should be visible.

draw.llim

A logical specifying if the lower limit tick marks should be visible.

direction

A character string indicating the direction of the guide. One of "horizontal" or "vertical."

default.unit

A character string indicating grid::unit() for barwidth and barheight.

reverse

logical. If TRUE the colorbar is reversed. By default, the highest value is on the top and the lowest value is on the bottom

order

positive integer less that 99 that specifies the order of this guide among multiple guides. This controls the order in which multiple guides are displayed, not the contents of the guide itself. If 0 (default), the order is determined by a secret algorithm.

available_aes

A vector of charater strings listing the aesthetics for which a colorbar can be drawn.

...

ignored.

Details

Guides can be specified in each scale_* or in guides(). guide="legend" in scale_* is syntactic sugar for guide=guide_legend() (e.g. scale_color_manual(guide = "legend")). As for how to specify the guide for each scale in more detail, see guides().

Value

A guide object
