NameTypeDescription
valuestringColor to search value.

Returns:

number - Middle of searched range.

colors

Gets the current linear gradient for linear color scale.

Returns:

Array.<string> - The current linear gradient.
Sets linear gradient for linear color scale.

Params:

NameTypeDescription
valueArray.<string>Colors set.

Returns:

anychart.scales.OrdinalColor - Self instance for method chaining.

finishAutoCalc

Returns:

Array.<Object> - Processed ranges.

getRangeByValue

Returns range for passed value.

Params:

NameTypeDescription
valuenumberValue to search its range.

Returns:

Object - Searched range or null.

getType

Returns scale type.

Returns:

string - Scale type.

inverseTransform

Returns tick value by its ratio position.

Params:

NameTypeDescription
rationumberValue to transform in input scope.

Returns:

* - Value transformed to output scope.

inverted

Getter for scale inversion.

Returns:

boolean - Current inversion state.
Setter for scale inversion.

Params:

NameTypeDefaultDescription
valueboolean
false
Value to set.

Returns:

anychart.scales.OrdinalColor - Self instance for method chaining.

listen

Adds an event listener to an implementing object.

Params:

NameTypeDefaultDescription
typestring
The event type id.
listenerfunction
Callback method. Function that looks like function(event){ // event.actualTarget - actual event target // event.currentTarget - current event target // event.iterator - event iterator // event.originalEvent - original event // event.point - event point // event.pointIndex - event point index }.
useCaptureboolean
false
Whether to fire in capture phase. Learn more about capturing https://javascript.info/bubbling-and-capturing
listenerScopeObject
Object in whose scope to call the listener.

Returns:

Object - Unique key for the listener.

listenOnce

Adds an event listener to an implementing object.

Params:

NameTypeDefaultDescription
