[Paraview] Programatically change "Map Scalars" and "Color By"

It is now. I was setting the activeVectors.

That takes care of the "Color By" drop down but the "Map Scalars" is  
still checked. So either I am misunderstanding what is meant by "Map  
Scalars" or I really _do_ need it unchecked. With it "Checked" the  
colors do NOT match. With it "Unchecked" the colors that the user  
selects for their data does match what is displayed.

Thanks so far for the help.
