# Table and graphic frame

Is there any LaTeX package that can produce tables and figures like the example in the folowing image by default?

EDIT:

I used tcolorbox but I did not get the result needed as I'm not familiar with its options. here is my code (I found it here)

\newtcolorbox{theorem}[1][]{
breakable,
enhanced,
colback=white,
colframe=black,
top=\baselineskip,
enlarge top by=\topsep,
overlay unbroken and first={
\node[xshift=100pt,thick,draw=black,fill=white,anchor=west] at (frame.north west) %
{\refstepcounter{theorem}\strut{\bfseries\theoname~\thetheorem}\if#1\@empty\relax\relax\else~: #1\fi};
}
}


and this is the result

How can I customise it in order to be similar to the above one?

• Welcome to TeX.SX! I think you're looking for pgfplots package. – Claudio Fiandrino May 12 '14 at 7:42
• 'By default' is a bit of a broad term here: as already mentioned, there are packages such as pgfplots that can make plots, but you will have to make changes to get a good reproduction of the example. – Joseph Wright May 12 '14 at 7:45
• @user42987: I've likely misunderstood, but after reading: "Is there any package in Latex that can produce table and figure [..]", I think is pretty normal to suggest a package that can draw the figure. Could you be more specific then? – Claudio Fiandrino May 12 '14 at 8:00
• Have you tried to use the float environnement? – Romain Picot May 12 '14 at 8:12
• You could take a look at the tcolorbox or mdframed packages, combined with the caption package. – Bernard May 12 '14 at 9:01

How about this solution using tcolorbox ?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[many]{tcolorbox}

\newtcolorbox[auto counter]{myfigure}[2][]{enhanced,center upper,
colback=white,colbacktitle=black!20!white,coltitle=black,
arc=0pt,outer arc=0pt,fonttitle=\scshape,lefttitle=2.4cm,
boxrule=0.3mm,
overlay={
\fill[black!20!white] ([xshift=2.2cm,yshift=-0.3mm]title.south west) rectangle (frame.north east);
\fill[black] ([yshift=-0.3mm]title.south west) rectangle
node[white] {\sffamily Figure~\thetcbcounter}
([xshift=2.2cm]title.north west);
},title={#2},#1}

\begin{document}

\begin{myfigure}{Prevalence des Prescriptions des Molecules d'Antibiotiques
les plus Frequntes, par Annee d'Enquete}
\includegraphics[width=10cm]{example-image-a}
\end{myfigure}

\end{document}


If this new figure should contain the chapter number and behave like an 'ordinary' LaTeX figure, use the following modification:

\newtcolorbox[use counter=figure,number within=chapter,
list inside=lof,list type=figure]{myfigure}[2][]{enhanced,center upper,
colback=white,colbacktitle=black!20!white,coltitle=black,
arc=0pt,outer arc=0pt,fonttitle=\scshape,lefttitle=2.4cm,
boxrule=0.3mm,
overlay={
\fill[black!20!white] ([xshift=2.2cm,yshift=-0.3mm]title.south west) rectangle (frame.north east);
\fill[black] ([yshift=-0.3mm]title.south west) rectangle
node[white] {\sffamily Figure~\thetcbcounter}
([xshift=2.2cm]title.north west);
},title={#2},#1}


Then, the new figure will be listed inside the list of figures using

\listoffigures

• Thak you for your help, this is what I expected, but I got an error when compiling: Unknown option many for package tcolorbox. \ProcessOptions* – user42987 May 12 '14 at 17:15
• I will try to update packages and tell you – user42987 May 12 '14 at 17:35
• I quite sure that you have an old version of tcolorbox. The current version is 3.00. After an update, it should work. – Thomas F. Sturm May 12 '14 at 17:35
• @user42987 I'm glad that I could help. Maybe, it's also useful to know for you that you can make the figure floatable by adding the option float to the keylist or - more flexible - individually by using \begin{myfigure}[float]{... – Thomas F. Sturm May 13 '14 at 8:28
• @user42987 See my updated answer. – Thomas F. Sturm May 13 '14 at 13:10

If you only want to draw the graph, I suggest you have a look at a drawing program using LaTeX or producing LaTeX-code.

One program is Ipe v 7. Another program is Nicola Talbot’s jpgfdraw.

Ipe is using LaTeX to produced PDF-files you may include in the main document.

• Thak you for your help, I'm not looking for producing graphics, I Just want to produce a box (similar to the one above) around my included plots that contain the number of the figure and the caption. – user42987 May 12 '14 at 8:12
• @user42987 Then just put the picture in an ‘fbox’. – Sveinung May 12 '14 at 8:19
• @user42987 You may also try ‘framebox’, forkosh.com/latex/ltx-237.html – Sveinung May 12 '14 at 8:23
