ChoroplethColorizer.RangeDistribution Property

Gets or sets the distribution type of range colors in a colorizer.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraMap

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraMap.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Map


public IRangeDistribution RangeDistribution { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

An object implementing the DevExpress.Map.IRangeDistribution interface.


Set the LinearRangeDistribution, LogarithmicRangeDistribution or ExponentialRangeDistribution object to the ChoroplethColorizer.RangeDistribution property. Note that if the ChoroplethColorizer.ApproximateColors property value equals false, shapes with values inside one range interval have the same color.
