ds.completeCases {dsBaseClient}R Documentation

Identifies complete cases in server-side R objects

Description

Selects complete cases of a data frame, matrix or vector that contain missing values.

Usage

ds.completeCases(x1 = NULL, newobj = NULL, datasources = NULL)

Arguments

x1

a character denoting the name of the input object which can be a data frame, matrix or vector.

newobj

a character string that provides the name for the output variable that is stored on the data servers.

datasources

a list of DSConnection-class objects obtained after login. If the datasources argument is not specified the default set of connections will be used: see datashield.connections_default.

Details

In the case of a data frame or matrix, ds.completeCases deletes all rows containing one or more missing values. However ds.completeCases in vectors only deletes the observation recorded as NA.

Server function called: completeCasesDS

Value

ds.completeCases returns a modified data frame, matrix or vector from which all rows containing at least one NA have been deleted. The output R object is stored on the server-side. Also, two validity messages are returned to the client-side indicating the name of newobj that has been created in each data source and if it is in a valid form.
