ColorFunctionScaling is an option for graphics functions which specifies whether arguments supplied to a color function should be scaled to lie between 0 and 1. =C2 >>

Hi All,

Does anyone know how I can change the "Range" value of a preset
ColorFunction (e.g. "TemperatureMap") in DensityPlot?

I am facing the following problem:

Let's say that the min and max values of your plotting function (not the
color one) are fmin and fmax, respectively. Let's also assume that you set
PlotRange->{pmin,pmax}.
If pmax is lower than fmax then the highest valued color (Red) corresponds
to pmax but if pmax is higher than fmax the highest valued color (Red)
corresponds to fmax. Note that we have similar situation for the minimum
values fmin and pmin.

How can I assign the highest (lowest) valued color of a preser ColorFunction
to the desired value whatever it is.
