Notes
  • mylabels and myticks generate axis labels and ticks on transformed scales. Their use is best explained by example. You draw a graph and one axis is on a transformed square root scale. You wish the axis labels to show untransformed values. For some values this is easy; for example, ylabel(0 1 2 "4" 3 "9" 4 "16" 5 "25") says use "4" as label for 2, and so forth. For other values and/​or other transformations the conversion may be more difficult to do in your head. The idea behind mylabels is that you feed it the numeric labels you want shown and the transformation being used. It will then place the appropriate specification in a local macro which you name. You may then use that local macro as part of a later graphics command. The idea behind myticks is similar. mydays displays a formatted list of specified days that lie within the range of a tsset daily date variable describing a time series and puts the numeric version of that list in a specified local macro. The result may be useful for specifying axis label or tick positions on graphs of time series. mydays requires Stata 9.0.
