Associating Your Own Logo and Icons with Your SAS/AF Application

You can substitute your own logo screen and icons in place of those icons provided by SAS.
Note: These procedures involve creating resources for and building your own dynamic link libraries (DLLs). For more information about creating DLLs, see the Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit.
To display your own logo when SAS starts:
  1. Create the logo that 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.
  2. When you invoke SAS, specify the SPLASHLOC 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 System Option: Windows.
Your logo is displayed when you start SAS.
To use your own icons with your SAS/AF application:
  1. Use the USERICON system option when you start SAS to specify the resource file that contains the icons that 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 USERICON System Option: Windows .
  2. Use SAS/AF software to create a FRAME entry.
  3. Select the buttonStyle attribute of the push button to display an icon. You can select the Large Icon from the iconStyle attributes of the push button to enlarge the icon.
  4. Click the ellipses for the value of the icon attribute for the push button to display an icon. The Select Icon window appears. Icon categories are displayed at the top of the window. Click on the down arrow and then select the User Icons category. The user-defined icons from your resource file are displayed. Select an icon for your push button.
