Renders a reactive plot that is suitable for assigning to an
renderPlot( expr, width = "auto", height = "auto", res = 72, ..., alt = "Plot object", env = parent.frame(), quoted = FALSE, execOnResize = FALSE, outputArgs = list() )
An expression that generates a plot.
Height and width can be specified in three ways:
"auto", the default, uses the size specified by
offsetWidth/`offsetHeight`` of the HTML element bound to
An integer, defining the width/height in pixels.
A function that returns the width/height in pixels (or
The function is executed in a reactive context so that you can refer to
reactive values and expression to make the width/height reactive.
When rendering an inline plot, you must provide numeric values (in pixels)
Resolution of resulting plot, in pixels per inch. This value is
grDevices::png(). Note that this affects the resolution of PNG
rendering in R; it won't change the actual ppi of the browser.

These can be used to set the width, height, background color, etc.

if it cannot be displayed or viewed (i.e., the user uses a screen reader).
In addition to a character string, the value may be a reactive expression
(or a function referencing reactive values) that returns a character string.
NULL or "" is not recommended because those should be limited to decorative images
(the default is "Plot object").

is useful if you want to save an expression in a variable.
FALSE (the default), then when a plot is
resized, Shiny will replay the plot drawing commands with
grDevices::replayPlot() instead of re-executing
This can result in faster plot redrawing, but there may be rare cases where
it is undesirable. If you encounter problems when resizing a plot, you can
have Shiny re-execute the code on resize by setting this to

With ggplot2 graphics, the code in
renderPlot should return a ggplot
object; if instead the code prints the ggplot2 object with something like
print(p), then the coordinates for interactive graphics will not be
properly scaled to the data space.
