Adjust position by dodging overlaps to the side.

Usage

position_dodge(width = NULL, height = NULL)

Arguments

width
Manually specify width (does not affect all position adjustments)
height
Manually specify height (does not affect all position adjustments)

Description

Adjust position by dodging overlaps to the side.

Examples

ggplot(mtcars, aes(x=factor(cyl), fill=factor(vs))) + geom_bar(position="dodge")

ggplot(diamonds, aes(x=price, fill=cut)) + geom_bar(position="dodge")
stat_bin: binwidth defaulted to range/30. Use 'binwidth = x' to adjust this.

# see ?geom_boxplot and ?geom_bar for more examples # Dodging things with different widths is tricky df <- data.frame(x=c("a","a","b","b"), y=1:4, g = rep(1:2, 2)) (p <- qplot(x, y, data=df, group=g, position="dodge", geom="bar", stat="identity"))

p + geom_linerange(aes(ymin = y-1, ymax = y+1), position="dodge")

# You need to explicitly specify the width for dodging p + geom_linerange(aes(ymin = y-1, ymax = y+1), position = position_dodge(width = 0.9))

# Similarly with error bars: p + geom_errorbar(aes(ymin = y-1, ymax = y+1), width = 0.2, position="dodge")

p + geom_errorbar(aes(ymin = y-1, ymax = y+1, width = 0.2), position = position_dodge(width = 0.90))
