Simulation Results Plotting


Plots simulation results.


## S3 method for class 'SimulationResults'
plot(x, y, main = NA_character_,
  xlab = NA_character_, ylab = NA_character_, type = 1,
  palette = "Set1", theta = seq(-1, 1, 0.01), plotPointsEnabled = NA,
  legendPosition = NA_integer_, showSource = FALSE, ...)



The simulation results, obtained from


Not available for this kind of plot (is only defined to be compatible to the generic plot function).


The main title.


The x-axis label.


The y-axis label.


The plot type (default = 1). The following plot types are available:

  • 1: creates a 'Boundaries' plot

  • 2: creates a 'Boundaries Effect Scale' plot

  • 3: creates a 'Boundaries p Values Scale' plot

  • 4: creates a 'Type One Error Spending' plot

  • 5: creates a 'Sample Size' or 'Overall Power and Early Stopping' plot

  • 6: creates a 'Number of Events' or 'Sample Size' plot

  • 7: creates an 'Overall Power' plot

  • 8: creates an 'Overall Early Stopping' plot

  • 9: creates an 'Expected Number of Events' or 'Expected Sample Size' plot

  • 10: creates a 'Study Duration' plot

  • 11: creates an 'Expected Number of Subjects' plot

  • 12: creates an 'Analysis Times' plot

  • 13: creates a 'Cumulative Distribution Function' plot

  • 14: creates a 'Survival Function' plot


The palette, default is "Set1".


A vector of theta values.


If TRUE, additional points will be plotted.


The position of the legend. By default (NA_integer_) the algorithm tries to find a suitable position. Choose one of the following values to specify the position manually:

  • -1: no legend will be shown

  • NA: the algorithm tries to find a suitable position

  • 0: legend position outside plot

  • 1: legend position left top

  • 2: legend position left center

  • 3: legend position left bottom

  • 4: legend position right top

  • 5: legend position right center

  • 6: legend position right bottom


If TRUE, the parameter names of the object will be printed which were used to create the plot; that may be, e.g., useful to check the values or to create own plots with plot.


Optional ggplot2 arguments.


Generic function to plot all kinds of simulation results.
