Draw a Polygon

These functions create and draw a polygon. The final point will automatically be connected to the initial point.

Keywords
dplot
Usage
grid.polygon(x=c(0, 0.5, 1, 0.5), y=c(0.5, 1, 0.5, 0), id=NULL, id.lengths=NULL, default.units="npc", name=NULL, gp=gpar(), draw=TRUE, vp=NULL) polygonGrob(x=c(0, 0.5, 1, 0.5), y=c(0.5, 1, 0.5, 0), id=NULL, id.lengths=NULL, default.units="npc", name=NULL, gp=gpar(), vp=NULL)
Arguments
x
A numeric vector or unit object specifying x-locations.
y
A numeric vector or unit object specifying y-locations.
id
A numeric vector used to separate locations in x and y into multiple polygons. All locations with the same id belong to the same polygon.
id.lengths
A numeric vector used to separate locations in x and y into multiple polygons. Specifies consecutive blocks of locations which make up separate polygons.
default.units
A string indicating the default units to use if x, y, width, or height are only given as numeric vectors.
name
A character identifier.
gp
An object of class gpar, typically the output from a call to the function gpar. This is basically a list of graphical parameter settings.
draw
A logical value indicating whether graphics output should be produced.
vp
A Grid viewport object (or NULL).
Details

Both functions create a polygon grob (a graphical object describing a polygon), but only grid.polygon draws the polygon (and then only if draw is TRUE).

Value

A grob object.
