`plot`

method for `party`

objects with
extended facilities for plugging in panel functions.

```
# S3 method for party
plot(x, main = NULL,
terminal_panel = node_terminal, tp_args = list(),
inner_panel = node_inner, ip_args = list(),
edge_panel = edge_simple, ep_args = list(),
drop_terminal = FALSE, tnex = 1,
newpage = TRUE, pop = TRUE, gp = gpar(),
margins = NULL, …)
# S3 method for constparty
plot(x, main = NULL,
terminal_panel = NULL, tp_args = list(),
inner_panel = node_inner, ip_args = list(),
edge_panel = edge_simple, ep_args = list(),
type = c("extended", "simple"), drop_terminal = NULL,
tnex = NULL, newpage = TRUE, pop = TRUE, gp = gpar(),
…)
# S3 method for simpleparty
plot(x, digits = getOption("digits") - 4, tp_args = NULL, …)
```

x

an object of class `party`

or `constparty`

.

main

an optional title for the plot.

type

a character specifying the complexity of the plot:
`extended`

tries to visualize the distribution of the
response variable in each terminal node whereas `simple`

only gives some summary information.

terminal_panel

an optional panel function of the form
`function(node)`

plotting the terminal nodes.
Alternatively, a panel generating function of class
`"grapcon_generator"`

that is called with arguments
`x`

and `tp_args`

to set up a panel function.
By default, an appropriate panel function is chosen
depending on the scale of the dependent variable.

tp_args

a list of arguments passed to `terminal_panel`

if this
is a `"grapcon_generator"`

object.

inner_panel

an optional panel function of the form
`function(node)`

plotting the inner nodes.
Alternatively, a panel generating function of class
`"grapcon_generator"`

that is called with arguments
`x`

and `ip_args`

to set up a panel function.

ip_args

a list of arguments passed to `inner_panel`

if this
is a `"grapcon_generator"`

object.

edge_panel

an optional panel function of the form
`function(split, ordered = FALSE, left = TRUE)`

plotting the edges.
Alternatively, a panel generating function of class
`"grapcon_generator"`

that is called with arguments
`x`

and `ip_args`

to set up a panel function.

ep_args

a list of arguments passed to `edge_panel`

if this
is a `"grapcon_generator"`

object.

drop_terminal

a logical indicating whether all terminal nodes should be plotted at the bottom.

tnex

a numeric value giving the terminal node extension in relation to the inner nodes.

newpage

a logical indicating whether `grid.newpage()`

should be called.

pop

a logical whether the viewport tree should be popped before return.

gp

graphical parameters.

margins

numeric vector of margin sizes.

digits

number of digits to be printed.

…

additional arguments passed to callies.

This `plot`

method for `party`

objects provides an
extensible framework for the visualization of binary regression trees. The
user is allowed to specify panel functions for plotting terminal and inner
nodes as well as the corresponding edges. Panel functions for plotting
inner nodes, edges and terminal nodes are available for the most important
cases and can serve as the basis for user-supplied extensions, see
`node_inner`

.

More details on the ideas and concepts of panel-generating functions and
`"grapcon_generator"`

objects in general can be found in Meyer, Zeileis
and Hornik (2005).
