\title{Continuous scale constructor.}
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")
\item{aesthetics}{the names of the aesthetics that this scale works with}
\item{scale_name}{the name of the scale}
\item{palette}{a palette function that when called with a single integer
argument (the number of levels in the scale) returns the values that
they should take}
\item{name}{The name of the scale. Used as axis or legend title. If
\code{NULL}, the default, the name of the scale is taken from the first
mapping used for that aesthetic.}
\item{breaks}{One of: \itemize{
\item \code{NULL} for no breaks
\item \code{waiver()} for the default breaks computed by the
transformation object
\item A numeric vector of positions
\item A function that takes the limits as input and returns breaks
as output
\item{minor_breaks}{One of: \itemize{
\item \code{NULL} for no minor breaks
\item \code{waiver()} for the default breaks (one minor break between
each major break)
\item A numeric vector of positions
\item A function that given the limits returns a vector of minor breaks.
\item{labels}{One of: \itemize{
\item \code{NULL} for no labels
\item \code{waiver()} for the default labels computed by the
transformation object
\item A character vector giving labels (must be same length as \code{breaks})
\item A function that takes the breaks as input and returns labels
as output
\item{limits}{A numeric vector of length two providing limits of the scale.
Use \code{NA} to refer to the existing minimum or maximum.}
\item{rescaler}{Used by diverging and n colour gradients
(i.e. \code{\link{scale_colour_gradient2}}, \code{\link{scale_colour_gradientn}}).
A function used to scale the input values to the range [0, 1].}
\item{oob}{Function that handles limits outside of the scale limits
(out of bounds). The default replaces out of bounds values with NA.}
\item{expand}{A numeric vector of length two giving multiplicative and
additive expansion constants. These constants ensure that the data is
placed some distance away from the axes. The defaults are
\code{c(0.05, 0)} for continuous variables, and \code{c(0, 0.6)} for
discrete variables.}
\item{na.value}{Missing values will be replaced with this value.}
\item{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, it's inverse,
and methods for generating breaks and labels. Transformation objects
are defined in the scales package, and are called \code{name_trans}, e.g.
\code{\link[scales]{boxcox_trans}}. You can create your own
transformation with \code{\link[scales]{trans_new}}.}
\item{guide}{Name of guide object, or object itself.}
Continuous scale constructor.
