Property Type Description
value Number | String | Boolean

Required. A constant value in visual domain (e.g., "red" / “#0099ff” for color, values between 0 to 1 for opacity).

For example, you can set color and shape of a scatter plot to constant values.

Similarly, value for size channel of bar marks will adjust the bar’s size. By default, there will be 1 pixel offset between bars. The following example sets the size to 10 to add more offset between bars.
