Add a scatter plot layer to a ggplot object

## Usage

addScatter(
data = NULL,
metaData = NULL,
x = NULL,
y = NULL,
caption = NULL,
color = NULL,
shape = NULL,
size = NULL,
linetype = NULL,
dataMapping = NULL,
plotConfiguration = NULL,
plotObject = NULL
)

## Arguments

data

A data.frame to use for plot.

metaData

A named list of information about data such as the dimension and unit of its variables.

x

Numeric values to plot along the x axis. Only used instead of data if data is NULL.

y

Numeric values to plot along the y axis. Only used instead of data if data is NULL.

caption

Optional character values defining the legend captions of the plot.

color

Optional character values defining the colors of the plot layer. See grDevices::colors() to get names of colors

shape

Optional character values defining the shapes/symbols of the plot layer. See enum Shapes to get names of shapes.

size

Optional numeric values defining the size of the plot layer.

linetype

Optional character values defining the linetype of the plot layer. See enum Linetypes to get names of linetype.

dataMapping

A XYGDataMapping object mapping x, y and aesthetic groups to their variable names of data.

plotConfiguration

An optional PlotConfiguration object defining labels, grid, background and watermark.

plotObject

An optional ggplot object on which to add the plot layer

## Value

A ggplot object

## Examples

# Add scatter using x and y
addScatter(x = c(1, 2, 1, 2, 3), y = c(5, 0, 2, 3, 4))

# Add scatter using a data.frame
time <- seq(0, 30, 0.1)
scatterData <- data.frame(x = time, y = cos(time))

addScatter(
data = scatterData,
dataMapping = XYGDataMapping\$new(x = "x", y = "y")
)

# Or for simple cases a smart mapping will get directly x and y from data
addScatter(data = scatterData)

# Add a scatter with caption
addScatter(data = scatterData, caption = "My scatter plot")

# Add a scatter with specific properties
addScatter(
data = scatterData,
color = "blue", shape = "diamond", size = 2, caption = "My data"
)

# Add a scatter with specific properties
p <- addScatter(
data = scatterData,
color = "blue", shape = "diamond", size = 2, caption = "My data"
)
addScatter(
x = c(0, 1), y = c(1, 0),
color = "red", shape = "circle", size = 3,
plotObject = p
)
