Class breaks renderer


This sample uses a class breaks renderer to symbolize Kansas counties by population density. The code explicitly adds classes and defines a color for each. The classes are defined using the ClassBreaksRenderer.addBreak() method, where the parameters are the minimum and maximum values to be included in the class and the symbol to use for the class.

Notice the use of "Infinity" to denote that the final break does not have a ceiling.
