Not an exact solution, but a potential starting point is this post:https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-GRAPH-and-ODS-Graphics/How-to-set-transparent-background-of-ods-c...

Re: Goptions CBACK =

If you are using a traditional device based graphic procedure such as Gplot, Gchart, Gslide or Gmap I don't believe you can set transparency.

 

If this is for an annotate data set my may be able to determine the color you are displaying on and set to that color. Maybe. Not with any gradient and wouldn't work with any background color other than a solid fill pattern (no crosshatch or line pattern ),

 

If you share some example data and the full code we may be able to suggest something using the ODS graphic procedures that do support transparency.

Can you set your device to be PNG and use GOPTIONS TRANSPARENCY?

Re: Goptions CBACK =

Dan is correct - I have verified it with the code below, and verified that the background looks 'checkerboard' in Photoshop, which indicates that it is transparent:

 

filename odsout '.';
ODS LISTING CLOSE;
ODS HTML path=odsout body="transparent.htm";

goptions device=png;
goptions transparency;
proc gchart data=sashelp.class;
hbar name / type=sum sumvar=height descending space=0
des='' name="transparent";
run;

quit;
ODS HTML CLOSE;
ODS LISTING;
