Subject: Re: overplotting an observation on HBAR
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
I don't recall seeing any replies this morning so here are a couple ideas.
Proc GBARLINE will plot a bar chart with a superimposed line but I suspect
that you want isolated and not connected dots.
If you want individual dots, I would use Proc Gchart with an Annotate data
set which would add the circles. Take a look at
if you scroll down the page, you will find an example in which numeric
values were added to a bar chart.
If you are not familiar with Annotate, the general process for the type of
application that you want is to build a data set with a series of obs, one
for each bar. The following bit of code is from the example page
function='symbol'; style='marker'; text='V'; color='red'; size=5;
This tells sas that you want to stick a symbol of a given shape, size
and color at a set
of xy coordiates. The x and y come from the data set which you are
graphing. The x will refer to the bar and the y will be above or at the
top of the bar. If you refer to the annotate section of the SAS/Graph
manual, you will see a longer discussion of the topic.
