You can substitute your own logo screen and icons in place of those provided
by the SAS System.
Note: These procedures involve creating resources for
and building your own dynamic link libraries (DLLs). For more information
on creating DLLs, see the Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit.
To display your own logo when the SAS System starts:
Your logo will display when you
start the SAS System.
- Create the logo you want to display and save it
either as a Windows bitmap (which has a BMP file extension), or compile it
as resource and build it into a DLL.
- When you invoke SAS, specify the SPLASHLOCATION
option with the full pathname of the file that contains your bitmap. If the
bitmap is in a DLL, be sure to specify the resource number as well. The default
resource number is 1. For more information, see SPLASHLOC.
To use your own icons with your SAS/AF application:
- Use the USERICON system option when you start
the SAS System to specify the resource file that contains the icons you want
to include. You must use the Windows software development tool to compile
the resource file. For more information about the USERICON option, see
