I've an issue to plot a figure using Gviz? I've a dataframe containing several genomic positions (chr, pos, strand) and want to plot a specific region containing these features. The strand information is important in this plot thus I would like to use the arrow shape and a specific color to highlight it (strand + = red ; "-" = blue). I want only the arrow border line to be colored, and white within it. Thus I will us the "col" parameter (and will put the fill parameter to "white")

So :

# specify color for each features
col <- df$strand
# create track containing the colored line
aTrack <- AnnotationTrack(start=df$pos,width=1000,chromosome="chr15",strand=t$strand,genome="hg19",col=col,name="foo",fill="white")
# create track where the whole arrow is colored
bTrack <- AnnotationTrack(start=df$pos,width=1000,chromosome="chr15",strand=t$strand,genome="hg19",fill=col,name="foo")
# plot both tracks

Here's the results : enter image description here

You can see that the second track colored the arrows in the right manner (majority of blue ones and a few red ones), but for the first track all the arrow are red ... even though I use the same variable to assign the colors.

Anyone can help me?

Here's my session info :
