SGPanel: How can I set colors of hbars by panel

Hello,

Is there a way I set the colors of the bars in each panel? For example, I want all the bars in the first panel to be one color, all bars in the second panel another color, etc.

Thanks,

Not the most elegant solution but what I have done in the past with something like this is to use a stacked bar but make sure that in each panel only one of the groups in the stack has non-zero values with rest as zero. Then suppress the legend.

Another way to say this is to use the PANELBY variable as the GROUP variable on the VBAR/HBAR statement.  This will work with one panel (class) variable.  But if you have more than one class variables, you will have to create another variable that is the combination of the multiple variables.   It is not clear what is gained by this approach, unless the bar color is a better eye catcher than the cell header.
