One of the goals of Rattle is to keep things simple for the user. Consequently, not all options available for many of the functions provided by R are exposed through the Rattle user interface. This is not meant to be a limitation though, and Rattle is quite at ease working with modifications you make to the crs data structure within the R Console, at least to quite some extent.
Suppose for example that you wish to build an ada model using the x
and y arguments rather than the formula argument.
First, within Rattle, build the normal ada model and go to the
Log tab to highlight and copy the command used:
crs$ada <- ada(Adjusted ~ ., data=crs$dataset[crs$sample,c(2:4,6:10,13)], control=rpart.control(maxdepth=30, cp=0.010000, minsplit=20, xval=10), iter=50)
crs$ada <- ada(crs$dataset[crs$sample,c(2:4,6:10)], crs$dataset[crs$sample,c(13)], control=rpart.control(maxdepth=30, cp=0.010000, minsplit=20, xval=10), iter=50)
crs$adaand then evaluate then with Rattle. Of course, the alternative is to copy the R commands for the evaluation from the Log tab of Rattle and paste them into the R console and perform the evaluation prgrammatically.
