Miscellaneous Resources

You can also customize the following resources:

SAS.altVisualId: ID
specifies a visual type ID. The default is NULL.

SAS.autoSaveInterval: minutes
specifies how often (in minutes) that the data from the Program Editor window should be saved. The default is 10.

SAS.autoSaveOn: [True | False]
specifies that data from the Program Editor window should be saved to a file at intervals specified by the SAS.autoSaveInterval resource. The default is True.

SAS.confirmSASExit: [True | False]
controls whether SAS displays the Exit dialog box when you issue the DLGENDR command or when you select Exit from the File menu. The default is True.

SAS.defaultCommandWindow: [True | False]
specifies whether the command window is opened when you start your SAS session. The default is True. directory-pathname
specifies the directory that you want when you first open a file selection dialog box. By default, the Open dialog box uses the current directory.

SAS.graphicsClipboardPath: directory-name
specifies which directory to place the GSTORE temporary file in. The default is SAS$WORKLIB:. This directory is usually the best place to store the temporary file. To cut and paste graphs and images between SAS sessions, the setting of this resource must be identical in both sessions, and the path must be accessible to the systems on which the sessions are running.

SAS.helpBrowser: pathname
specifies the pathname of the World Wide Web browser that you want to use for viewing the online help. The default browser is Netscape.

SAS.insertModeOn: [True | False]
controls the editing mode in SAS editor windows, either insert or overtype. The default is False (overtype).

specifies that SAS commands submitted through the sas-do-command() Xt action routine should not be recorded in the command recall buffer. The default value, True, causes these commands to be recorded.

SAS.pattern: default-pattern
specifies the default pattern that you want to be used as the file filter when you first invoke the Open dialog box. This pattern is displayed in the text field at the top of the dialog box. By default, the Open dialog box uses the first filter in the File type list. The SAS.pattern resource has no effect on the File type field.

specifies how long (in seconds) the SAS System waits for the completion of a request to convert an X Toolkit selection. The default value, 60, is adequate in most cases.

SAS.startupLogo: [xpm-filename | None | ""]
specifies the .XPM file that you want the SAS System to display when it is initialized. If the string is empty (" ", which is the default), the SAS System uses the default logo.

SAS.webBrowser: pathname
specifies the pathname of the web browser that you want invoked when the WBROWSE command is issued. The default browser is Netscape.

SAS.wsaveAllExit: [True | False]
specifies whether SAS should issue the WSAVE ALL command when you end your session. This command saves the global settings, such as window color and window position, that are in effect for all windows that are currently open. The default is False.
