This function does its best attempt to take whatever you provide it and turn it into a grob. It is primarily meant to convert ggplot plots into grobs, but it will also take any grid object (grob), a recorded base R plot, a formula specifying a base R plot, a function that generates a base R plot, or a trellis object.

as_grob(plot, device = NULL)



The plot to convert


A function that creates an appropriate null device. See set_null_device() for details. If set to NULL, will use the cowplot-wide default.


library(grid) x <- 1:10 y <- (1:10)^2 p <- ~plot(x, y) grid.newpage() grid.draw(as_grob(p))
