Hi all

 

I have created a bar chart in SAS VA showing the frequency of records in 11 categories
(these are the first in a hierarchy thus the used i able to click further down on each category) . 
For each category there are three subclasses for which I have used a grouping.

 

I am looking fro a way to add vertical reference lines to bar chart separating three parts in the bar chart. 

Ideally, I would be able to color the background of the bar chart for these three parts in red / orange / green (see below). 
If this is impossible, I would like to add two vertical lines separating the red from the orange part and the orange from the green part. 

 

Does anyone has some pointers on how to do this ???

I think you need to add three bar charts and color them individually.

You might also be able to create a user designed bar chart that looks like that using the graph builder.

 

There is no way you can do what you want with the standard bar chart, at least what I know 🙂

 

The vertical lines you can add with images.

In SAS VA Guide, section " Working with Visualization Data Ranges and Color Gradients ", there is a list of graphs where a color gradient can be customized. However, the bar chart is not on that list.

 

On the Properties tab of the bar chart, you can specify the option  Reference Lines

adds reference lines to the visualization. To create a reference line, click the Create new reference line button, and then specify the parameters for the line in the New Reference Line window.
The name of each reference line appears below the Reference Lines option. You can edit or delete your reference lines by using the icons next to each name.
