In PC SAS I used %window & %display to display prompts and messages.  Is there a way to do the same from programs running in SAS Studio?

%WINDOWS and %DISPLAY rely on technology in SAS Display Manager /  PC SAS / SAS Windowing environment (whichever one you happen to call it) so those aren't available in SAS Studio.  However, SAS Studio tasks should get you what you're looking for.  You can create copies of any of the delivered tasks and modify them or start your own tasks from scratch.  A task is just a front end you can build to your SAS code.  On the SAS Studio doc page , take a look at " Writing Your First Custom Task" then "Developer's Guide to Writing Custom Tasks" to dig in to more detail.

 

If there's something you want to do that doesn't seem possible with tasks, please let us know.  We want to continue adding to the task framework and need more good use cases!

Is that just for practice? 

Are you using SAS UE or do you have SAS installed on a server somewhere?

Using Enterprise edition of studio so SAS runs on the server.
