CustomScale Class

Represents the scale that defines custom distribution of colors in the color range.

Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardCommon

Assembly: DevExpress.Dashboard.v18.1.Core.dll

Syntax

public class CustomScale : MapScale

The CustomScale.RangeStops property allows you to specify endpoints for color ranges in the custom palette. Use the CustomPalette.Colors property to specify colors used in the custom palette.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to customize a palette of the Choropleth map.

In this example, a set of custom colors is used to color map shapes depending on the provided values. Absolute values are used to specify endpoints for color ranges.
