The SAS/GRAPH Control for ActiveX is available for Microsoft Windows environments. The control displays interactive graphs that can be used in Web pages and OLE documents (in Microsoft Office products).
Graph Types:
Additional Features:
Areabar charts represent the values of multiple response variables by one or more independent variables. The values of one response variable are represented by bar height or length (depending on whether the chart orientation is vertical or horizontal), and the values of the second are represented by bar width. Areabar charts are useful for charting the values of two independent variables.
Horizontal Areabar Chart 
Areabar charts for ActiveX allow users to do the following:

Bar charts represent a requested statistic based on the values of one or more variables. They are useful for displaying exact magnitudes and emphasizing the differences among the charted values.
Vertical Bar Chart Horizontal Bar Chart 
Bar charts for ActiveX allow users to do the following:

Pie charts use the size of pie slices to graphically represent the value of a statistic for a data range. Pie charts are useful for examining how the values of a variable contribute to the whole and for comparing the values of several variables.
A pie chart with detailed slices produces an inner pie overlay whose slices show the major components that form the outer pie's slices.
Pie Chart

Pie charts for ActiveX allow users to do the following:

Simple line plots show the relationship of one variable to another, often as movements or trends in the data over a period of time. Typically, each variable value on the horizontal axis has only one corresponding value on the vertical axis.
Area plots are line plots that emphasize trends by filling the areas between plot lines with a pattern or color.
Twodimensional scatter plots show the relationship of one variable to another, often revealing concentrations or trends in the data. Typically, each variable value on the horizontal axis can have any number of corresponding values on the vertical axis .
Bubble plots show the relative magnitude of one variable in relation to two other variables. The values of two variables determine the position of the bubble on the plot, and the value of a third variable determines the size of the bubbles.
Bubble Plot Scatter Plot 
Line, Area, Scatter, and Bubble Plots for ActiveX allow users to do the following:

Contour plots are twodimensional plots that show threedimensional relationships. They use contour lines or patterns to represent levels of magnitude for a contour variable that is plotted on the horizontal and vertical axes.
Surface plots are threedimensional plots that display the relationship of three variables as a continuous surface. Surface plots examine the threedimensional shape of data.
Contour Plot Surface Plot 
Contour and Surface Plots for ActiveX allow users to do the following:

Block maps are threedimensional maps that represent data values as blocks of varying height rising from the middle of the map areas.
Choropleth maps are twodimensional maps that represent data values by filling map areas with color.
Prism maps are threedimensional maps in which levels of magnitude of the specified response variables are represented by raised polygons of varying height and color.
Prism Map 
Maps for ActiveX allow users to do the following:

Highlow and box plots show how several values of one variable relate to one value of another variable. Typically, each variable value on the horizontal axis has several corresponding values on the vertical axis.
Highlow plots are useful for representing data that fluctuates around the observation criteria (for example, stock market values that fluctuate during each trading day).
Box plots are useful for representing data that can be measured using quantile ranges or standard deviations (for example, research data).
HighLow Plot Box Plot 
Highlow and box plots for ActiveX allow users to do the following:

Radar charts show the relative frequency of data measures in quality control or market research problems. The chart statistics are displayed along spokes that radiate from the center of the chart. Rather than displaying the spoke lines, the chart can display polygon or carona shapes that connect the points where data values are located on the spokes.
Radar Chart with Filled Polygons 
Radar charts for ActiveX allow users to do the following:

SAS/GRAPH software enables you to use annotations to overlay text and shapes anywhere on a graph. Beginning with Version 9, the graphs for ActiveX support most of the capabilities of SAS/GRAPH's annotation facility.
Annotated Bar Chart 
This chart shows two response variables in a barline overlay chart that contains scatter point values with associated labels. The plot line, values, and labels are drawn as annotations. 
Annotated Map 
In this graph, a map is annotated with city names as labels. Lines of different sizes and colors associate the cities with a Pie chart. 
The SAS/GRAPH Control for ActiveX supports style definitions that determine visual characteristics of the graph, such as its use of colors, fonts, background, transparency, drop shadows, and more. The styles have names, and the style definitions are applied to a graph by assigning a style name to it. The style name can be assigned by the person who creates the graph, and the assigned style can be changed by the person who views the graph.
The same style definition can be applied to both grapical and nongraphical output from a SAS program, thus coordinating the visual characteristics of output tables and graphs.
The following figure shows the same graph with different styles assigned to it. The style names are above the graphs. (The figure shows just a sampling of the available styles.)

In the following figure, the left and right halves of the figure show the same table and graph from SAS output. The output on the left has the Gears style applied to it, and the output on the right has the Magnify style applied to it.

Any graph that can be rendered in the Control for ActiveX can be saved directly to a PNG image without saving a version for rendering in the control. This generates a high quality image that is able to take advantage of the graph styles that are available for the ActiveX graphs.
