Does the legend support decimal places? If I utilize the following XAML command my legend shows zero at the minimum, midpoint and maximum.

<s:FastHeatMapRenderableSeries Maximum=".28" Minimum=".13">

Using this you can create your own modification to the legend as you see fit.

Hope this helps!

Is there a way to blend the colors nicely? I see a bunch of blocks of color, it'd be nice if it flowed together like one big image instead of a bunch of blocks.


Not sure where to start? Contact us, we are happy to help!
