When you construct a formula like channel1 ~ channel2, 'channel1' and 'channel2' are simply treated as symbols and will be passed to xyplot as they are without evaluating. One solution is to construct a string and convert it to a formula.

f_str <- paste0(channel1, "~", channel2)

f <- as.formula(f_str)

xyplot(f, frame)

Hi Mike,

I want to use the xyplot method of the flowViz package. I'm writing a method in which the user determines the channels he want to use for the xyplot like the followgin:

xyplot(channel1 ~ channel2, frame)

But this does not work because channel1 within the xyplot method does not match channel1 in the function definition. I also tried to do it without quotes (channel1=FS.Log) but this does not work, too. Do you know what I can do to get a match in this way?
