Error addtext to graphs looping over cross sections in panel

Postby mamo » Tue Sep 15, 2015 3:34 am

Dear Eviews team,
the code below creates the error message
Data based arrows are not permitted in panel workfiles T in "DO_ GRD.ADDTEXT(T) "GROUP "+"D"".

It seems that it is not possible to add text to charts looping over the cross sections in a panel?

Code: Select all

wfcreate a 2000 2015 5
series x=nrnd+10*crossid
alpha csect=@chr(64+crossid)
for %c D A C
   smpl @all if csect=%c
   freeze(mode=overwrite, gr{%c}) x.line
   gr{%c}.addtext(t) "Group "+%c
next

The corresponding error message
Data based arrows are not permitted in panel workfiles L in "DO_ GRD.ADDTEXT(L) "GROUP "+"D"".

pops up when replacing the 2nd but last code line by

Code: Select all

gr{%c}.addtext(l) "Group "+%c


Best,
mamo

You can do it via the user interface but we will get it fixed for the command line in the next patch

The program does run and no longer produces the reported error.

The output however is probably not what the original author wanted. Addtext cannot parse string expressions. I presume the author probably wanted:

Code: Select all

wfcreate a 2000 2015 5
series x=nrnd+10*crossid
alpha csect=@chr(64+crossid)
for %c D A C
   smpl @all if csect=%c
   freeze(mode=overwrite, gr{%c}) x.line
   %s = "Group " + %c
   gr{%c}.addtext(t) %s
next
