    I want to be able to set the backcolor for the chart itself with a gradient.  I can easily set the backcolor property but don't see away to control the gradient.  I see that in the property build under Edit UI Elements there is the RadChartElement.  Not sure how to get to that programmatically?  Please advise or let me know the correct way to accomplish this.

    Thanks

    Hello Joshua,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can use the ChartElement properties to set a gradient background:
    radChartView1.ChartElement.GradientStyle = GradientStyles.Linear;
    radChartView1.ChartElement.NumberOfColors = 4;
    radChartView1.ChartElement.BackColor = Color.Red;
    radChartView1.ChartElement.BackColor2 = Color.Gray;
    radChartView1.ChartElement.BackColor3 = Color.Green;
    radChartView1.ChartElement.BackColor4 = Color.Blue;

    Let me know if I can assist you further.
