Calcite | Level 5

Hi SAS fellow SAS Users -


I am stuck trying to add a dashed line to a solid line graph. The graph I currently have is attached. Each line is supposed to represent a different worker, but because there are 16 different workers the colors repeat themselves. Is there a way to add a dashed line to differentiate the workers that have the same color? Line Graph.PNG

Thanks for the response! 


I've actually tried this, but it will only allow me to have either all solid lines or all dashed lines. And what I need to do is a combination of the two 😞

Him just getting curious!


What do you want to show/"say" with that graph?

Why do you need to display all 16 in the same graph?


It already look very "messy" and changing som of the lines to dotted, would not make it less "messy" 🙂


One way could be to add multi-selection-list that allow the user to compare some of the worker at a the same time.

Another would be to rank the workers (if applicable) for example in a bar chart and when one (or more) of the bars are selected show the coresponding trend in a line graph.


Any how I would go for another solution then just changing the lines to dotted 🙂
