  3. Use separate color for marked items
from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import *

myVis = myVis.As[Visualization]()

# 1. Set transparency
myVis.Transparency = 0.5  #50% transparency (0.0 - 1.0 allowed)

# 2. Set X and Y jittering
myVis.XJitter = 0.01  #10% of max - range is 0.0 to 0.10
myVis.YJitter = 0.05  #50% of max - range is 0.0 to 0.10

# 3. Use separate color for marked items
myVis.UseSeparateColorForMarkedItems = False
