|SAS/GRAPH Software: Reference
SAS/GRAPH software lets you set color in these places:
- Set color on any procedure that generates graphics
output (refer to the chapter for the individual procedure).
- Set color on the SAS statements that enhance procedure
output: AXIS, FOOTNOTE, LEGEND, NOTE, PATTERN, SYMBOL, and TITLE (see SAS/GRAPH Statements).
- Use the
GOPTIONS statement's color options to
define default colors for graphics elements (see Specifying Default Colors in a GOPTIONS Statement).
- Use the
GOPTIONS statement's COLORS= option to
define a colors list that controls colors for graphics elements
when explicit specifications and defaults are unavailable (see
Defining and Using a Colors List).
- Rely on your current device's default colors list.
(See Device Capabilities
for general information about device capabilities. See Creating a Custom Device Entry with Program Statements for information on how
you can view or modify a device's color list.)
These methods, singly or in combination, give
software the colors it needs to generate graphics output. Regardless of where
you specify color, the value you specify for a color must not exceed eight
characters and must be in a valid SAS color-naming scheme (see Color-naming Schemes).
