The GLMPOWER Procedure

ODS Styles Suitable for Use with PROC GLMPOWER

ODS styles control the appearance of graphs produced by PROC GLMPOWER. ODS provides over 50 styles, but most are not suitable for use in PROC GLMPOWER. PROC GLMPOWER requires a style that distinguishes curves based on a combination of color, line style, and symbol marker. Styles that are well-suited for use in PROC GLMPOWER include: STATISTICAL, ANALYSIS, DEFAULT, LISTING, and HTMLBLUECML. The HTMLBLUE and PLATEAU styles are commonly used, but they are not well-suited for use with PROC GLMPOWER because they rely primarily on color to distinguish curves rather than a combination of color, line style, and symbol marker.

In this chapter, a style is explicitly specified at the start of each example that uses ODS Graphics to remind you to use one of the suitable styles. Styles are specified in an ODS destination statement. Destinations include LISTING, HTML, RTF, PDF, and many others. You can set the style and the destination as follows:

ods html style=htmlbluecml;
ods graphics on;

proc glmpower data=Exemplary;
   class Variety Exposure;
   model Height = Variety | Exposure;
      stddev = 4 6.5
      ntotal = 60
      power  = .;
   plot x=n min=30 max=90;

ods graphics off;
ods html close;
