`grid.pattern_polygon_tiling()`

draws a specified polygon tiling pattern onto the graphic device.
`names_polygon_tiling`

lists all supported types.

x | A numeric vector or unit object specifying x-locations of the pattern boundary. |
---|---|

y | A numeric vector or unit object specifying y-locations of the pattern boundary. |

id | A numeric vector used to separate locations in x, y into multiple boundaries.
All locations within the same |

... | Currently ignored |

colour | Stroke colour |

fill | Fill colour |

angle | Rotation angle in degrees |

spacing | Spacing between repetitions of pattern ('snpc' units between 0 and 1). |

xoffset | Shift pattern along x axis ('snpc' units between 0 and 1). |

yoffset | Shift pattern along y axis ('snpc' units between 0 and 1). |

type | Name of polygon tiling to draw. See Details. |

alpha | Alpha (between 0 and 1) or |

linetype | Stroke linetype |

size | Stroke linewidth |

default.units | A string indicating the default units to use if |

name | A character identifier. |

gp | An object of class |

draw | A logical value indicating whether graphics output should be produced. |

vp | A Grid viewport object (or NULL). |

An object of class `character`

of length 36.

A grid grob object invisibly. If `draw`

is `TRUE`

then also draws to the graphic device as a side effect.

`grid.pattern_polygon_tiling()`

supports 1, 2, or 3 `fill`

colors with the first colors (weakly)
covering a larger area. Size of the pattern is controlled by `spacing`

.
