PROC SGRENDER ANNOTATE OPTIONS

Hello--

The following is a simplified example of a problem I am trying to wade through.

I have a dataset that has State scores by year.  I want to plot the scores over time for each of the states--with specific colors, linestyles, and shapes for each state.  I also want to use the annotate function to shade a portion of the graph that I would like to accentuate.  I was able to get the annotate to work with sgplot, but cannot get it to work with sgrender.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Specifically:

--How can I get the shaded part to work with annotate?

--Is there an easier way to accomplish my different colors, linestyles, markers by state?

Thanks.

Nick

Re: PROC SGRENDER ANNOTATE OPTIONS

Have a look at Annotating ODS Graphics :: SAS(R) 9.4 ODS Graphics: Procedures Guide, Third Edition. There are no "move" or "bar" annotate function, I'm very surprised how you managed to get this annotate to work with sgplot. It looks like you are trying to use the annotations from SAS/GRAPH (GPlot)! - it will not work, ODS Graphics annotations are totally different.

Re: PROC SGRENDER ANNOTATE OPTIONS

Hey Andrey--

This helps a lot.  Thanks.  I still can't get the syntax quite right, though.  It looks like I need the rectangle function with fillcolor:

data annorec;

/*   length function style color $8;                                                                                                       */

retain xsys '2' ysys '1' when 'b';                                                                                                   

set drop;                                                                                                      

function='rectangle';

height=.4;

width=2;

x=startdate;                                                                                                                       

y=60; 

display="all";

FILLCOLOR='LTGRAY';

output;                                                                                                          

run;   

Any ideas what I'm missing here?
