programs can use some of the SAS language
statements that you typically use with the Base SAS procedures or
with the DATA step, such as LABEL, WHERE, and FORMAT. These statements
are described in the SAS Statements: Reference
In addition, SAS/GRAPH
has its own set of statements
that affect only graphics output generated by the
procedures and the graphics facilities
Annotate and DSGI. Most of these statements are global
. That is, they can be specified anywhere
in your program and remain in effect until explicitly changed or canceled.
These are the SAS/GRAPH
modifies the appearance,
position, and range of values of axes in charts and plots.
adds footnotes to graphics
output. This statement is like the TITLE statement and is described
in that section.
submits graphics options
that control the appearance of graphics elements by specifying characteristics
such as colors, fill patterns, fonts, or text height. Graphics options
can also temporarily change device settings.
modifies the appearance
and position of legends generated by procedures that produce charts,
plots, and maps.
adds text to the graphics
output. This statement is an exception because it is not global but
local, meaning that it must be submitted within a procedure. Otherwise,
the NOTE statement is like the TITLE statement and is described in
controls the color
and fill of patterns assigned to areas in charts, maps, and plots.
specifies the shape
and color of plot symbols as well the interpolation method for plot
data. It also controls the appearance of lines in contour plots.
adds titles to graphics
output. The section describing the TITLE statement includes the FOOTNOTE
and NOTE statements.
The above statements
are described in this chapter, as well as the following two Base language
statements that have a special effect when used with
processes data according
to the values of a classification (BY) variable and produces a separate
graph for each BY-group value. This statement is not a global statement.
It must be specified within a DATA step or a PROC step.
generates one or more
files written in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). If you use it with SAS/GRAPH procedures, you can
specify one of the device drivers GIF, ACTIVEX, or JAVA. ACTIVEX and
JAVA are available only with GCHART, GCONTOUR, GMAP, GPLOT, and G3D.
With the GIF device driver, the graphics output is stored in GIF files.
With the ACTIVEX device driver, graphics output is stored as XML input
to ActiveX controls. With the JAVA device driver, graphics output
is stored as XML input to Java applets. The HTML files that are generated
reference the graphics output. When viewed with a Web browser, the
HTML files can display graphics and non-graphics output together on
the same Web page.

and WHERE statements in Base SAS software, see SAS Statements: Reference
