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.

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Drawing;
using DevExpress.DashboardCommon;
using DevExpress.XtraEditors;

namespace Dashboard_ChoroplethMapCustomPalette {
    public partial class Form1 : XtraForm {
        public Form1() {
            InitializeComponent();
            // Loads a dashboard that contains a choropleth map with the default palette.
            Dashboard dashboard = new Dashboard();
            dashboard.LoadFromXml(@"..\..\Data\Dashboard.xml");

            // Gets the ValueMap object that provides data for coloring map shapes.
            ChoroplethMapDashboardItem map = (ChoroplethMapDashboardItem)dashboard.Items[0];
            ValueMap populationMap = (ValueMap)map.Maps[0];

            // Creates CustomPalette and CustomScale objects.
            CustomPalette customPalette = new CustomPalette();
            CustomScale customScale = new CustomScale();

            // Creates lists of custom colors and range stops.
            List<Color> customColors = new List<Color>();
            List<double> rangeStops = new List<double>();

            // Specifies that the absolute scale is used to define a set of colors.
            customScale.IsPercent = false;

            // Specifies custom colors and corresponding range stops.   
            customColors.Add(Color.LightBlue);  rangeStops.Add(100000);
            customColors.Add(Color.SkyBlue);    rangeStops.Add(1000000);
            customColors.Add(Color.LightCoral); rangeStops.Add(10000000);
            customColors.Add(Color.Tomato);     rangeStops.Add(100000000);
            customColors.Add(Color.Maroon);     rangeStops.Add(1000000000);

            // Adds custom colors and range stops to a custom palette and corresponding custom scale.
            customPalette.Colors.AddRange(customColors);
            customScale.RangeStops.AddRange(rangeStops);

            // Specifies a custom palette and scale for the ValueMap object.
            populationMap.Palette = customPalette;
            populationMap.Scale = customScale;

            // Sets the customized dashboard as a currently opened dashboard.
            dashboardViewer1.Dashboard = dashboard;
        }
    }
}
