ods html - no graphical output

I have generated html files using following code. In the generated html body and frame files, there are no graphic outputs generated. When open these two files, there is message displayed at bottom “Internet explorer restricts this webpage form running scripts or ActiveX”. Does anyone have idea? I am using Base SAS in version SAS 9.4 TS Level 1M4 running on W32_7PRO platform with OS windows version 6.

title 'Comparing Group Means';

data Scores;
   input Gender $ Score @@;
   datalines;
f 75  f 76  f 80  f 77  f 80  f 77  f 73
m 82  m 80  m 85  m 85  m 78  m 87  m 82
;

proc ttest;
   class Gender;
   var Score;
run;

ods html close;
ods html body="&output\test.htm" contents="&output\testc.htm" frame="&output\testf.htm" style=HTMLBlue ;
ods graphics on;
ods graphics / reset
      imagemap=on
      width=4in
      height=6in ;

proc ttest data=scores;
   class Gender;
   var Score;
run;

ods html close;

You want to set your default graphics to GIF or PNG.

 

goptions device=png;

For ODS isn't that set in the ODS Graphics statement? imagefmt?

I have never used the imagefmt option with ODS GRAPHICS. I do use the command I stated above.

Reeza is correct. To set the format of the ODS Graphics output, one should use the OUTPUTFMT (aka, IMAGEFMT) option on the ODS GRAPHICS statement.

 

Thanks!

I never do that, and I get PNG files.

Probably because it's the default setting for HTML, though it looks like the option name is OUTPUTFMT= not IMAGEFMT.

 

HTML5 default is SVG for example.

Either OUTPUTFMT or IMAGEFMT will work. OUTPUTFMT is now the official option name.

This option doesn't help on my PC and path option works.  Thank you.

Re: ods html - no graphical output

The problem is how you put the paths in your ODS HTML options. Try this instead:

 

ods html path="&output" (url=none) body="test.htm" contents="testc.htm" frame="testf.htm" style=HTMLBlue ;

Both your graph output and the HTML files will be written to the PATH location. The (url=none) prevents the path from being written into the HTML output, making it easier to deploy your output.


Hope this helps!

The problem IS how to set path= in ODS HTML options. Yes, it works by using code as you suggested. Thank you all!
