In the past, you may have used the GRAPHIC command to draw a box or line.

In Hyperion's 11.1 documentation, it recommends against use the GRAPHIC command, as it may be deprecated in future releases.

The command to replace your GRAPHIC code is called DRAW.  After experimenting with this command, I found it much easier to use, as well as additional features such as Fill Color and OVAL.

Quick Overview of DRAW

More information to come soon.

Converting your GRAPHIC to DRAW

Most of the conversion consists of moving the third variable in the parenthesis to the width option.  In addition, The two variables after BOX become HEIGHTand RULE respectively.

GRAPHIC (1,4,60) BOX 3 20

would become

DRAW (1, 4) TYPE=BOX WIDTH=60 HEIGHT=3 RULE=20

PDF Examples of DRAW

Here is a quick PDF I created to showcase some of the DRAW features..
