    Hi,

    I was looking the chart appearance demo and I want to implement something like that, I am using a RadChart with PieSeriesDefinition, a RadRadialGauge and a RadChart with AreaSeriesDefinition, I can't find how to apply the palette, I also have a RadPolarChart and a RadCartesianChart and I have no problem assigning the palette.

    I don't know if for the first 3 charts is not possible assign a palette or it works in a different way.

    Thanks,

    Alberto

    Hi Alberto,

    RadChart, RadChartView(RadCartesianChart, RadPolarChart and RadPieChart) and RadGauge are separate controls with very different internal implementation (they are also from different assemblies). The chart appearance demo uses RadChartView's palette API which is not available with other controls.
    I would recommend using only RadChartView for charting needs (if possible) as this is where the majority of our development efforts goes. This way you will have a single API to learn and use.

    If you really do need use RadChart, you can use its similar mechanism for applying palettes demonstrated in the attached project.

    As for RadGauge - you can find examples of  customizing its appearance in its Theming demo.
