Customizing the SAS Windowing Environment

Miscellaneous Resources under OpenVMS

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) 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 File [arrow] Exit. 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.helpBrowser: pathname

specifies the pathname of the browser to use for viewing the online Help or when the WBROWSE command is issued. The default browser is SAS$BROWSER.

SAS.insertModeOn: [True | False]

controls the editing mode in SAS editor windows, either insert or overtype. The default is False (overtype).

SAS.noDoCommandRecall: [True | False]

specifies whether SAS commands submitted through the sas-do-command() Xt action routine should 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.

SAS.selectTimeout: seconds

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

SAS.startSessionManager: [True | False]

specifies whether SAS automatically starts the SAS Session Manager when a new SAS session is started. Using your own host editor with SAS requires that the SAS Session Manager be running. The default is True.

SAS.startupLogo: [xpm-filename | None | ""]

specifies the XPM file that you want SAS to display when it is initialized. If the string is empty (" ", which is the default), SAS uses the default logo.

SAS.suppressMenuIcons: [True | False]

specifies whether SAS will display any menu icons other than the check box and toggle button icons in cascade or pop-up menus. True suppresses the icons and improves how quickly the menus display on slower X servers. The default is False.

SAS.suppressTutorialDialog: [True | False]

specifies whether SAS displays the Getting Started Tutorial dialog box at the start of your SAS session. True suppresses the dialog box. You might want to suppress this dialog box if you have previously used SAS. The default is False.

SAS.useNativeXmTextTranslations: [True | False]

specifies whether any XmText widget translations are inherited by all instances of the Text, Combo Box, and Spin Box widgets used by the SAS X Motif user interface. When the value is False, the SAS keys windows translations supersede any user or system-supplied XmText translations. The default value is False. See the XmText man page for more information about XmText resources.

SAS.VMSdelay: milliseconds

controls how often SAS yields processing to the X Windowing environment. During this time, the X Windowing environment updates the user interface. Smaller values for this resource will increase responsiveness at the expense of increased CPU time. Valid values range from 50 to 10,000 milliseconds. The default delay is 1000 milliseconds, or 1 second.

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.
