[R] Lattice: how to get default ylim?

Within your panel function you can use current.viewport() to recover
the active grid viewport and get xlim/ylim (in addition to other very
useful information).  Then you can use grid.text (plus any other
grid.* function), e.g.,


  my.panel <- 
     ## add "Hello World on the top-left of each panel
     v <- current.viewport()        ## requires R 2.1.0 (I believe)
     xlim <- v$xscale
     ylim <- v$yscale
     grid.text(x = xlim[1], y = ylim[2], default.units="native",
        label = "Hello World", just= c("left", "top"))

Hope this helps.
