# continuous_scale

##### Continuous scale constructor.

Continuous scale constructor.

- Keywords
- internal

##### Usage

```
continuous_scale(aesthetics, scale_name, palette, name = waiver(),
breaks = waiver(), minor_breaks = waiver(), labels = waiver(),
limits = NULL, rescaler = rescale, oob = censor,
expand = waiver(), na.value = NA_real_, trans = "identity",
guide = "legend", position = "left", super = ScaleContinuous)
```

##### Arguments

- aesthetics
The names of the aesthetics that this scale works with

- scale_name
The name of the scale

- palette
A palette function that when called with a numeric vector with values between 0 and 1 returns the corresponding values in the range the scale maps to.

- name
The name of the scale. Used as the axis or legend title. If

`waiver()`

, the default, the name of the scale is taken from the first mapping used for that aesthetic. If`NULL`

, the legend title will be omitted.- breaks
One of:

`NULL`

for no breaks`waiver()`

for the default breaks computed by the transformation objectA numeric vector of positions

A function that takes the limits as input and returns breaks as output

- minor_breaks
One of:

`NULL`

for no minor breaks`waiver()`

for the default breaks (one minor break between each major break)A numeric vector of positions

A function that given the limits returns a vector of minor breaks.

- labels
One of:

`NULL`

for no labels`waiver()`

for the default labels computed by the transformation objectA character vector giving labels (must be same length as

`breaks`

)A function that takes the breaks as input and returns labels as output

- limits
A numeric vector of length two providing limits of the scale. Use

`NA`

to refer to the existing minimum or maximum.- rescaler
Used by diverging and n colour gradients (i.e.

`scale_colour_gradient2()`

,`scale_colour_gradientn()`

). A function used to scale the input values to the range [0, 1].- oob
Function that handles limits outside of the scale limits (out of bounds). The default replaces out of bounds values with

`NA`

.- expand
Vector of range expansion constants used to add some padding around the data, to ensure that they are placed some distance away from the axes. Use the convenience function

`expand_scale()`

to generate the values for the`expand`

argument. The defaults are to expand the scale by 5% on each side for continuous variables, and by 0.6 units on each side for discrete variables.- na.value
Missing values will be replaced with this value.

- trans
Either the name of a transformation object, or the object itself. Built-in transformations include "asn", "atanh", "boxcox", "exp", "identity", "log", "log10", "log1p", "log2", "logit", "probability", "probit", "reciprocal", "reverse" and "sqrt".

A transformation object bundles together a transform, its inverse, and methods for generating breaks and labels. Transformation objects are defined in the scales package, and are called

`name_trans`

, e.g.`scales::boxcox_trans()`

. You can create your own transformation with`scales::trans_new()`

.- guide
A function used to create a guide or its name. See

`guides()`

for more info.- position
The position of the axis. "left" or "right" for vertical scales, "top" or "bottom" for horizontal scales

- super
The super class to use for the constructed scale
