      牵手常德棋牌官方下载 And I’ll fix it in the post now.

    1. Hi Larry,
      Thanks for the comment, I’ve now fixed it in the text to read:

      牵手常德棋牌官方下载If this does not work for you, please change your CRAN mirror. The package was uploaded only about a day and it may take another day until all CRAN mirrors will have a copy of it properly rendered.

  3. 牵手常德棋牌官方下载Great app! Is there a way to make sure the app closes when you close the window when using viewerType=’browserViewer’? Right now, when I close the browser window running the widget, the console lingers as if the app is still open.

  4. Hi. Thanks for the great app. I love it. I am currently implementing this in an app.
    牵手常德棋牌官方下载 I have a question:

    In my app I have some ggplots that I would like to tie with the heatmap data.
    I would like the user to click on the heatmap, and based on the click, the appropriate sample in ggplot(s) get annotated.

    Is there anyway to add mouse click events to this package? I would like to basically have the “clickOpt” feature on ggplot2 shiny implemented in this app.

    Any suggestion or guidance is well appreciated.
