Hi Anna

Not sure what you want exactly as I do not use themes.

Here is one way  to get your averages and points 

# combine averages into mydata
 mydata$mavg <-
 c(rep(NA,4), madfStuff1[,3],
   rep(NA,4), subset(madfStuff2_3, Type== "stuff2",3, drop = T),
   rep(NA,4), subset(madfStuff2_3, Type== "stuff3",3, drop = T))
 xyplot(Value ~ Year, mydata, groups = Type,
        allow.multiple = T,
        distribute.type = TRUE,
        col = c("red","blue","cyan"),
         subscripts = TRUE,
        panel = panel.superpose,
        panel.groups = function(x, y, subscripts, ...,group.number) {
                  panel.xyplot(x, y, ...)
                   panel.xyplot(x, mydata[subscripts,"mavg"], col =
c("red","blue","cyan")[group.number], type = "l")

And now some sleep


BTW package names are case sensitive like R

Subject: [R] lattice, latticeExtra: Adding moving averages to double y plot

Hi lattice users,

I would like to add 5-year moving averages to my double y-plot. I have three
factors needs to be plotted with moving averages in the same plot. One of
these reads off y-axis 1 and two from y-axis 2. I have tried to use the
rollmean function from the zoo-packages, but I fail in insering this into
lattice (I am not an experienced lattice user). I want to keep the data
points in the plot.
Find below dummy data and the script as well as annotations further
describing my question.

thank you in advance!

mydata<- data.frame(
  Year = 1980:2009,
  Type = factor(rep(c("stuff1", "stuff2", "stuff3"), each = 10*3)),
  Value = rnorm(90, mean = seq(90),
                sd = rep(c(6, 7, 3), each = 10)))


stuff1data <- mydata[(mydata$Type) %in% c("stuff1"), ]
stuff12_3data <- mydata[(mydata$Type) %in% c("stuff2", "stuff3"), ]

# make moving averages function using zoo and rollmean:

f <- function(d)
  data.frame(Year = d$Year[5:length(d$Year)],
             mavg = rollmean(d$Value, 5))

# Apply the function to each group as well as both data frames:
madfStuff1 <- ddply(stuff1data, "Type", f)
madfStuff2_3 <- ddply(stuff12_3data, "Type", f)

# Some styles:
myStripStyle <- function(which.panel, factor.levels, ...) {
  panel.rect(0, 0, 1, 1,
             col = bgColors[which.panel],
             border = 1)
  panel.text(x = 0.5, y = 0.5,
             lab = factor.levels[which.panel],
             col = txtColors[which.panel])

myplot1 <- xyplot(Value ~ Year, data = stuff1data, col="black",
                   lty=1, pch=1,
                   ylab = "sweets", strip.left = F,
                   xlab = ("Year"),
                  panel = function(x,y,...,subscripts){
                    panel.xyplot(x, y, pch = 1,col = "black")
                    panel.lmline(x,y,col = "black", data=madfStuff1) # here
I presume that panel.lmline is wrong.
                    # I would like to have my 5 year moving average here,
not a straight line.

myplot2 <- xyplot(Value ~ Year, data = stuff12_3data, col="black",
                  lty=1, pch=1,
                  ylab = "hours", strip.left = F,
                  xlab = ("Year"),
                  panel = function(x,y,...,subscripts){
                    panel.xyplot(x, y, pch = c(2:3),col = "black") ## what
is this "pch" defining? Types?
                    #I would like to have different symbols and line types
for stuff2 and stuff3
                    panel.lmline(x,y,col = "black", data=madfStuff2_3) #
wrong! Need my moving averages here!

doubleYScale(myplot1, myplot2, style1 = 0, style2=0, add.ylab2 = TRUE,
             text = c("stuff1", "stuff2", "stuff3"), columns = 2,

# problem here is that I end up with two lines. I need a double y-plot with
one moving average plots that are read off y-axis 1
# and two that reads off y-axis 2. I need to keep the data points in the

       par.settings = simpleTheme(col = c("black", "black"), lty=c(1:3),
pch=c(1:3))) # how come that I only get
# lines in my legend text and not the symbols too. I thought "pch" would add
