proc sgplot control the color of overlapping bars

Hi, I'm using SAS 9.3 to present the bar with the same color by subjects who have more than one data.

However, the color of overlapping bars would be darker than others. Dose anyone have any suggestion to control the color of bars except for "transparency=0"?

Because the symbol in red in the red bars will be unobvious when I'm using "transparency=0".

No data, no picture, no code a bit hard to be specific.

 

Transparency= 0.5 perhaps?

Hello,


Can you show an example please? Do the bars have to overlap too? Maybe you can use stackedbar charts, or cluster your bar charts, so that they are side by side?

 

Many thanks,

Hi djrisks,

I have figured it out. Because the overlapping bar caused when there's more than one data in the same subject and treatment. (data as below)

subject treatment start end startline endline
01 A 1 10 2 3
01 A 1 10 4 5
01 A 1 10 6 7
02 B 1 11 2 8
The color of subject A will be shaded when using "group" option.
