Same as plotOptPath(), but renders the plots for just 1 iteration and returns a list of plots instead of printing the plot. Useful, if you want to extract single plots or to edit the ggplots by yourself.

## Arguments

op OptPath Optimization path. (integer(1)) Selected iteration of x to render plots for. (list | NULL) List of vectors of x-variables, either specified via name or id. If specified via names, also extra measurements from the opt.path can be selected. Maximum length for each vector is 5. For each list-element a line-plot iteration versus variable is generated. If the vector has length > 2 only mean values per iteration are plotted as lines, if vector has length 1 every point is plotted. Default is to plot all variables into as few plots as possible. Note that discrete variables are converted to numeric, if specified in the same vector with numerics. Moreover, if more than 1 point per iteration exists, mean values are calculated. This is also done for factor variables! We recommend you to specify this argument in a useful way. (list | NULL) List of vectors of y-variables, either specified via name or id. If specified via names, also extra measurements from the opt.path can be selected. Maximum length for each vector is 5. For each list-element a line-plot iteration versus variable is generated. If the vector has length > 2 only mean values per iteration are plotted as lines, if vector has length 1 every point is plotted. Default is to plot all variables into as few plots as possible. Note that discrete variables are converted to numeric, if specified in the same vector with numerics. Moreover, if more than 1 point per iteration exists, mean values are calculated. This is also done for factor variables! We recommend you to specify this argument in a useful way. (character(1) | NULL) It is possible to overlay the XSpace plot with an contour plot. This is only possible, if the XSpace has exact 2 numeric and 0 discrete variable. Consider subsetting your variables to use this feature! contour.name is the name of the target variable that will be used for the contour lines. Default is to use the first target variable, if it is possible to add contour lines. list X axis limits for the plots. Must be a named list, so you can specify the axis limits for every plot. Every element of the list must be a numeric vector of length 2. Available names for elements are: XSpace - limits for the X-Space plot YSpace - limits for the Y-Space plot Default is an empty list - in this case limits are automatically set. Note: For some plots it is not meaningful to set limits, in this case the set limits are ignored. Note: We do not support setting lims for the over.time.plots. We think, in nearly every case the ggplot defaults are fine, and the very rare case you have to set them, you can you can extract the plots and add your own limits. list Y axis limits for the plots. Must be a named list, so you can specify the axis limits for every plot. Every element of the list must be a numeric vector of length 2. Available names for elements are: XSpace - limits for the X-Space plot YSpace - limits for the Y-Space plot Default is an empty list - in this case limits are automatically set. Note: For some plots it is not meaningful to set limits, in this case the set limits are ignored. Note: We do not support setting lims for the over.time.plots. We think, in nearly every case the ggplot defaults are fine, and the very rare case you have to set them, you can you can extract the plots and add your own limits. (logical(1)) Activates or deactivates the alpha fading for the plots. Default is TRUE. character Vector of variable names. All of this variable logarithmized in every plot. Default is NULL - no logarithm is applied. Note that, if an variable has only negative value, it is multiplied with -1. For variables with both positive and negative values you have to do your own data preprocessing. (character(4)) Colours of the points/lines for the four point types init, seq, prob and marked. Default is red for init, blue for seq, green for prob and orange for marked. (numeric(4) | NULL) Size of points in the plot, default is 3. (numeric(4) | NULL) Size of lines in the plots, default is 1.5. (numeric(1)) Numeric missing values will be replaced by max + impute.scale * (max - min). Default is 1. (character(1)) Factor missing values will be replaced by impute.value. Default is missing. (character(1)) Parameter scale from the function GGally::ggparcoord() which is used for the multiD-case. Default is std. Theme for the ggplots. Can be generated by ggplot2::theme(). Default is ggplot2::theme(legend.position = "top"). (integer | character(1) | NULL) “best” or indices of points that should be marked in the plots. If marked = "best" the best point for single crit optimization respectively the pareto front for multi crit optimization is marked. Default is NULL (no points are marked). integer Vector of indices to subset of observations to be plotted, default is all observations. All indices must be available in the opt.path. But, to enable subsetting over multiple iterations, not all indices must be available in the current iteration. Indices not available in the current iteration will be ignored. Default is all observations. (integer | character) Subset of variables (x-variables) to be plotted. Either vector of indices or names. Default is all variables. (integer | character) Subset of target variables (y-variables) to be plotted. Either vector of indices or names. Default is all variables character Short names for x variables that are used as axis labels. Note you can only give shortnames for variables you are using in subset.vars character Short names for y variables that are used as axis labels. Note you can only give shortnames for variables you are using in subset.targets character Short names for rest variables that are used as axis labels. Note you can only give shortnames for variables you are used in x.over.time or y.over.time.

## Value

List of plots. List has up to elements: plot.x: Plot for XSpace. If both X and Y are 1D, Plot for both plot.y: Plot for YSpace. If both X and Y are 1D, NULL. plot.x.over.time: List of plots for x over time. Can also be NULL. plot.y.over.time: List of plots for y over time. Can also be NULL.
