If an image is specified on a PATTERN statement that is used with another type of chart, then the PATTERN statement is ignored and default pattern rotation is affected. For example, if you submit a PIE statement when an image has been specified in a PATTERN statement, the default fill pattern is used for the pie slices, with each slice in the pie displaying the fill pattern in the same color.
For DEVICE=ACTIVEX and DEVICE=ACTXIMG, if you do not specify a pathname to the image, then the ActiveX control searches a predefined list of locations to try to find the image. If all else fails, the ActiveX control looks for the image on the Web. It is recommended that you specify the pathname to the image.
For DEVICE=ACTIVEX and DEVICE=ACTXIMG, the IMAGE= option works for the VBAR and HBAR statements as well as the VBAR3D and HBAR3D statements. For all other devices, the IMAGE= option works only for the VBAR and HBAR statements.

PATTERN1generates the first PATTERN definition.
PATTERN2omits the COLOR= option, so the specified fill is rotated through all three colors in the color list before the PATTERN3 statement is used. This table shows the color and fill of the PATTERN definitions that would be generated if nine patterns were required:
goptions colors=(red blue green); pattern1 color=gold repeat=2; pattern2 value=x1 repeat=2;
PATTERN1is used twice and
PATTERN2cycles through the list of three colors and then repeats this cycle a second time:
