drawtext for data labels ?

This is my first time dealing with annotation.

I have decided to utilize annotation because I will be generating several graphs and I want to be sure I don't have issues with my error bars running into my labels.  Ideally, I would like my labels to be located inside the bars at the base of each bar.

I am trying to insert labels (data labels) into my proc template barchartparm.  Is it possible to do this with drawtext if i am using values of a variable for my bar labels ?

 

proc template;

define statgraph district;

begingraph / datacolors=(white CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED) ;

layout overlay / walldisplay=(fill) xaxisopts=(display=( line tickvalues)

DISCRETEOPTS=(TICKVALUEFITPOLICY =split))

yaxisopts=( offsetmin=0 linearopts=(viewmin=0 viewmax=100 tickvaluelist=(0 50 100)));

/* drawtext textattrs=(size=8pt) "variable" /width=5 widthunit=percent xspace=datavalue yspace=graphpercent x=2*/

/* y=80 justify=center;*/

barchartparm x=district y=percent / group=district groupdisplay=cluster errorupper=uppct errorlower=lowpct

ERRORBARATTRS=(color=black)

OUTLINEATTRS=(color=black) ;

/* scatterplot y=percent x=district / datalabel=percent */

/*DATALABELPOSITION=topright DATALABELATTRS=GRAPHVALUETEXT(SIZE=10pt weight=bold)

markerattrs=(size=0) ;*/

annotate;

endlayout;

endgraph;

end;

run;

proc sgrender data=district template=district sganno=anno;

format district district.;

run;

 

the following code inserts "variable" into my graph.  I want it to insert percent values from my variable.

drawtext textattrs=(size=8pt) "variable" /width=5 widthunit=percent xspace=datavalue yspace=graphpercent x=2

 y=80 justify=center;

 

I have also tried using an annotated data set which gave me the following error. 

NOTE: FUNCTION=label in the annotation data set is invalid.

Code:

data anno;

length function color text $ 8;

retain function 'label' color 'black' when 'a'

xsys ysys '2' position '2' size 3 hsys '3';

set district;

midpoint=&VAR.;

group=district;

function='label'; xsys='2'; ysys='2'; x=midpoint; y=0; text=left(put(percent,4.1)); size=5; output;

run;

 

Can anyone tell me the best way to go about doing this? 

Thanks!

Re: drawtext for data labels ?

I just found a way around the annotated data set by using an additional scatterplot ...

data District;

set desc_out;

dataloc=lowpct-2;

run;

 

proc template;

define statgraph district;

begingraph / datacolors=(white CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED CXEBDDED) ;

layout overlay / walldisplay=(fill) xaxisopts=(display=( line tickvalues)

DISCRETEOPTS=(TICKVALUEFITPOLICY =split))

yaxisopts=( offsetmin=0 linearopts=(viewmin=0 viewmax=100 tickvaluelist=(0 50 100)));

barchartparm x=district y=percent / group=district groupdisplay=cluster errorupper=uppct errorlower=lowpct

ERRORBARATTRS=(color=black)

OUTLINEATTRS=(color=black) ;

scatterplot y=dataloc x=district / markercharacter=percent ;

endlayout;

endgraph;

end;

run;
