Draw diagram in TikZ Is there anyone who would like to help me draw this diagram in LaTeX? :-) I got help yesterday to draw the diagram, point and so on but I can't figure out how to draw the little boxes and the lines between points.

The code I got yesterday, and tried to edit...

\documentclass[margin=5mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{decorations.pathreplacing}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[>=stealth,font=\scriptsize,scale=1.8]

% draw axis

\draw[->](0,0)--(4,0)node[below]{1};
\draw[->](0,0)--(0,4)node[left]{1};;

% draw ticks

\foreach \i in {1,2,3}
{\draw (\i,0.1)--(\i,-0.1)node[below]{$\frac{\i}{4}$};
\draw (0.1,\i)--(-0.1,\i)node[left]{$\frac{\i}{4}$};
}

% draw bullets

\foreach \i in {0,...,3}
{\foreach \j in {0,...,3}
\node[fill=black,circle,inner sep=1pt] (\i-\j) at (\i,\j) {};
}

% label for bullets x and y

\node[below right] at (2-1){$y_{j}$};
\node[below] at (1-2){$x_{j}$};
\draw(1-2)--(2,2);
\draw(1-2)--(1,3);
\draw[dashed](2-2)--(2,3);
\draw[dashed](1-3)--(2,3);
\draw(2-1)--(3,1);
\draw(2-1)--(2,2);
\draw[dashed](3-1)--(3,2);
\draw[dashed](2-2)--(3,2);
%\draw[decorate,decoration={brace,raise=3pt}](1-2)--(3-2)node[midway,above=4pt] {$|x-y|_\infty$};

% dashed arrows

\draw[dashed,<->](0.2,0)--(0.2,1);
\draw[dashed,<->](0,0.2)--(1,0.2)node[midway,above,font=\tiny]{$2^{-m}=\frac{1}{2}$};

\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

• Do this for me question are really poor. Have you tried anything yet? – Romain Picot Mar 16 '16 at 8:40
• Most of that diagram was drawn for you in a different question, you could at the very least refer to that and specify what the trouble is here. Saying "I have this code which does the following, how can I extend it to do this other thing" is much better than just posting an image of what you need done. – Torbjørn T. Mar 16 '16 at 8:56
• Sorry, i'm new to this. I understand i should refer, i will do that next time. – Jeanett Mar 16 '16 at 8:57
• You should add the code as a MWE of what you got already and revise your description and question... – Eric Mar 16 '16 at 9:23
• I tried do add the code but i don't think i did it right because it doesn't show :/ – Jeanett Mar 16 '16 at 9:53

To draw cross hatch box you can use \clip or \path[clip] inside a scope environment to limit showing diagonal lines inside a path which follows the edge of the two boxes.

\clip(1,3)--(2,3)--(2,2)--(3,2)--(3,1)--(2,1)--(2,2)--(1,2)--cycle;

\draw[->](0,0)--(0,6);

% draw ticks

\draw (5,2pt)--(5,-2pt)node[below]{$1$};
\draw (2pt,5)--(-2pt,5)node[left]{$1$};

% draw bullets

\foreach \i in {0,...,4}
{\foreach \j in {0,...,4}
\node[fill=black,circle,inner sep=1pt]  at (\i,\j) {};
}

% label for bullets x and y
