# ContourStyle

 ContourStyleis an option for contour plots that specifies the style in which contour lines or surfaces should be drawn.
• ContourStyle->g specifies that a graphics directive g should be used to draw all contour lines or surfaces.
• ContourStyle->{g1, g2, ...} specifies that successive directives gi should be used to draw successive contours.
• If equations are given as input to ContourPlot or ContourPlot3D, the successive directives in ContourStyle->{g1, g2, ...} are used cyclically to draw contours for the successive equations.
• The directives that can be given include:
 Dashing[{w1,...}] dashing specification Directive[g1,g2,...] composite graphics directive GrayLevel[i] intensity Hue[h] hue Opacity[a] opacity Red, Blue, etc. named colors RGBColor[r,g,b] RGB color Thickness[w] line thickness
• For individual gi, a list of directives is equivalent to Directive[...]. For a single g, a list of directives must be given as {list}.
• specifies that no explicit contour lines or surfaces should be drawn. Contour shading and meshes are not affected.
Contour lines are partially transparent by default:
Use dashed contour lines:
Show only the regions between contours, but not the actual contours:
Use partially transparent contour surfaces in three dimensions:
Give an explicit list of styles for contours:
