PROC NETDRAW Statement
PROC NETDRAW options ;
The following options can appear in the PROC NETDRAW statement.
specifies the input data set that contains the appropriate annotate
variables for the purpose of adding text and graphics to the
The data set specified must be an Annotate data set.
See the "Using the Annotate Facility" section for further details about this option.
names the SAS data set to be used by PROC NETDRAW for producing
a network diagram. If DATA=
is omitted, the most recently created SAS data set is used. This
data set, also referred to as the Network data set,
contains the network information (ACTIVITY and
SUCCESSOR variables) and any ID variables that are to be displayed
within the nodes. For details about this data set, see
the "Network Input Data Set" section.
indicates that the network be drawn in full-screen mode.
This enables you to view the network diagram produced by NETDRAW
in different scales; you can also move nodes around the diagram
to modify the layout.
specifies the name of the graphics catalog used to save the
output produced by PROC NETDRAW for later replay.
This option is valid only if the GRAPHICS option is specified.
indicates that the network diagram produced be of
high-resolution quality. If you specify the GRAPHICS
option, but you do not have SAS/GRAPH software licensed at your
site, the procedure stops and issues an error message. GRAPHICS is the
names the SAS data set that receives a description of the areas of a graph
and a link for each area. This information is for the construction of
HTML imagemaps. You use a SAS DATA step to process the output file
and generate your own HTML files. The graph areas correspond to the
link information comes from the
WEB= variable in the Network data set.
This gives you complete control over the
appearance and structure of your HTML pages.
produces a network diagram of line-printer quality.
requests the procedure not to display any output. The
procedure still produces the
Layout data set containing the details
about the network layout. This option is useful to determine node
placement and arc routing for a network that can be used at a
later time to display the diagram.
specifies a name for the output data set produced by PROC NETDRAW.
This data set, also referred to as the
data set, contains the
node and arc placement information determined by PROC NETDRAW
to draw the network. This data set contains all the
information that was specified in the Network
data set to
define the project; in addition, it contains variables
that specify the coordinates for the nodes and arcs of the
network diagram. For details about the Layout data set, see
the "Layout Data Set" section.
If the OUT= option is omitted,
the procedure creates a data set and
names it according to the DATAn convention.
