Change color of boxplot (not working)

Hello--

 

SAS is not using the options that I input, even though it is not reading it as an error. 

 

Example:

 

proc boxplot data=example;
plot free*id/ boxstyle=schematic nohlabel idsymbol= box cboxes=black cboxfill=red;
run;

 

I run this code, there are no errors, but the color of the box plot does not change. Nothing changes. It is always the same.

 

Any help?

From Proc Boxplot documentation in the section about Traditional Graphics and ODS Graphics

Global graphics statements (GOPTIONS, AXIS, and SYMBOL, for example) and PLOT statement options that specify details of graph appearance (such as CBOXFILL= and FONT= ) are ignored when ODS Graphics is enabled.

The Plot statement syntax page should show which elements work with ODS graphics. Different ODS Style will change colors.

Or use Proc SGPLOT.
