Example 4.5: Using the COMPRESS Option
In the previous example, PROC GANTT produced two pages of output since
the chart would not fit on a single page. One way to ensure that the
entire chart fits on a single page in graphics mode is to adjust the
values of HPOS and VPOS accordingly. An easier way, that is independent
of the values of HPOS and VPOS, is to specify the COMPRESS
option in the CHART statement. The following output shows the result of
adding the COMPRESS option to the CHART statement in Example 4.4.
The PCOMPRESS option would have a similar effect but would maintain the
aspect ratio as well. Some other options that can be used to control
the number of pages generated are the HPAGES= and VPAGES= options.
title f=swiss 'Gantt Example 5';
title2 f=simplex 'Using the COMPRESS Option';
* plot the schedule on one page;
chart target / dur=days cmile=cyan
