A SAS template style that follows Stephen Few's style guidelines

by Frequent Contributor on ‎11-01-2016 08:48 AM - edited on ‎11-01-2016 08:52 AM by Community Manager (1,167 Views)

I've just  got my hands on Stephen Few's "Show me the numbers" and wanted to implement to most basics advice automatically by creating a template/style.  I created a PROC TEMPLATE program that creates such a style; here are some samples of the result.

It's not perfect, but here's my template program, along with examples of use with proc report and proc sgplot.

 

 


%macro hex2(n);
  %local digits n1 n2;
  %let digits = 0123456789ABCDEF;
  %let n1 = %substr(&digits, &n / 16 + 1, 1);
  %let n2 = %substr(&digits, &n - &n / 16 * 16 + 1, 1);
  &n1&n2
%mend hex2;
 
/* convert RGB triplet (r,g,b) to SAS color in hexadecimal. 
   The r, g, and b parameters are integers in the range 0--255 */
%macro RGB(r,g,b);
  %cmpres(CX%hex2(&r)%hex2(&g)%hex2(&b))
%mend RGB;

*** light is used for large data objects, such as a bar or box;
%let lightgrey = %rgb(140,140,140);
%let lightblue = %rgb(136,189,230);
%let lightorange = %rgb(251,178,88);
%let lightgreen  = %rgb(144,205,151);
%let lightpink  = %rgb(246,170,201);
%let lightbrown = %rgb(191,165,84);
%let lightpurple = %rgb(188,153,199);
%let lightyellow = %rgb(237,221,70);
%let lightred  = %rgb(240,126,110);
*** medium is used for small data objects such as data points and lines;
%let mediumgrey = %rgb(77,77,77);
%let mediumblue = %rgb(93,165,218);
%let mediumorange = %rgb(250,164,58);
%let mediumgreen  = %rgb(96,189,104);
%let mediumpink  = %rgb(241,124,176);
%let mediumbrown = %rgb(178,145,47);
%let mediumpurple = %rgb(178,118,178);
%let mediumyellow = %rgb(222,207,63);
%let mediumred  = %rgb(241,88,84);

*** dark and bright highlighter is used for objects, such as a single bar;
%let darkgrey = %rgb(0,0,0);
%let darkblue = %rgb(38,93,171);
%let darkorange = %rgb(223,92,36);
%let darkgreen  = %rgb(5,151,72);
%let darkpink  = %rgb(229,18,111);
%let darkbrown = %rgb(157,114,42);
%let darkpurple = %rgb(123,58,150);
%let darkyellow = %rgb(199,180,46);
%let darkred  = %rgb(203,32,39);

Hi @ChrisNZ - I think this is because the GraphFonts and GraphColors "target" elements have expanded in SAS 9.4 maintenance releases (especially 9.4m3), and this example does not include them.  When you use the REPLACE keyword, those font/color definitions are dropped and if the parent template references them, then the previous values are dropped.   You can use the CLASS keyword instead, as in:

 

class GraphFonts /
	'GraphDataFont'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphUnicodeFont'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphValueFont'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphLabelFont'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphLabel2Font'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphFootnoteFont'=("Tahoma",8pt) 
	'GraphTitleFont'=("Tahoma",14pt) 
	'GraphTitle1Font'=("Tahoma",14pt) 
	'GraphAnnoFont'=("Tahoma",10pt)
;

That's my guess -- I'm going to ping @DanH_sas to see if there are any downsides to that.

@ChrisHemedinger is correct. In SAS 9.4, maintenance 3, we added additional styling related to node-link diagrams. To complete your set of fonts, you can use the list below. You can use the CLASS statement as Chris said; but, if you have any node-link diagram output that uses ODS styles, it would use an inherited font instead of one that matched the others in your list.

 

class GraphFonts /
	'GraphDataFont'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphUnicodeFont'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphValueFont'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphLabelFont'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphLabel2Font'=("Tahoma",10pt) 
	'GraphFootnoteFont'=("Tahoma",8pt) 
	'GraphTitleFont'=("Tahoma",14pt) 
	'GraphTitle1Font'=("Tahoma",14pt) 
	'GraphAnnoFont'=("Tahoma",10pt)
    'NodeTitleFont' = ("Tahoma", 9pt)
    'NodeLabelFont' = ("Tahoma", 9pt)
    'NodeInputLabelFont' = ("Tahoma", 9pt)
    'NodeLinkLabelFont' = ("Tahoma", 9pt)
    'NodeDetailFont' = ("Tahoma", 7pt)
;
