    I generate a line graph. I do not define the series' color. When the series appears it has a color (presumably just assigned a default/random). I would like to have my series' pointmark be this color.

    I tried:

    series.Appearance.PointMark.FillStyle.MainColor = series.Appearance.LineSeriesAppearance.Color;

    This does not work because the color is still define as ARGB 0,0,0 at the time of PageLoad.

    How would I fix this issue?

    Hello Sean,

     You can execute this logic on BeforeLayout of the chart.

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        RadChart1.BeforeLayout += new EventHandler<EventArgs>(RadChart1_BeforeLayout);
    void RadChart1_BeforeLayout(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Color c = RadChart1.Series[0].Appearance.LineSeriesAppearance.Color;
        RadChart1.Series[1].Appearance.PointMark.FillStyle.MainColor = c;

    Do not hesitate to contact if this does not work out.
