Assign colors in VA/Report Designer


Hi all,

As it is possible to assign colors to category variables for use in visualizations in VA Explorer, I was wondering why this option isn't available in VA Designer?

Or maybe there's some kind of workaround?


Thanks,

Ann

Re: Assign colors in VA/Report Designer

Hi Ann,

Assigning colors to category data items is available in SAS VA Designer. It is configured differently to SAS VA Explorer. In VA Designer it is found in Display Rules. I wasn't sure what version of SAS VA you were using, so I've provided documentation links for both 6.4 and 7.1 below...

SAS(R) Visual Analytics 6.4: User's Guide - Report Level Display Rules

SAS(R) Visual Analytics 7.1: User's Guide - Color-Mapped Value Display Rule

Let us know if this is what you were after.

Kind Regards,

Michelle

Re: Assign colors in VA/Report Designer

Hi - I am using vn 7.3.  

 

I have been able to use the color-mapped value display rule for a scatter plot.  

 

However I am not given this option for a custom chart I have which consists of a scatter plot on top of a schedule chart.  The scatter plot has a color category.  I have a slider to filter this chart and each time I change the slider values the category colors change.  It is extremely annoying - do you have an idea of how I can set the category colours so they are consistent?  


Thanks,

Marie
