Hi,

I want to change color of series in radChart Dynamically, but I Cant. I wrote below codes to do  but seri's color didn't change.

1.  RadChart1.Series.GetByName(cmbSeries.SelectedValue).PlotArea.Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = Color.Black
or
2. RadChart1.Series.GetByName(cmbSeries.SelectedValue).SetColors(Color.Black)
or

3. RadChart1.Series.GetByName(cmbSeries.SelectedValue).Appearance.LineSeriesAppearance.Color = Color.Black

is there any way to change it?

Thanks for your help,
Rebecca

Hello Rebecca,

Thanks for writing. After the chart is being displayed, changing some visual property needs a call to
Me.RadChart1.UpdateGraphics() 
for the changes to take effect.

Additionally, you might want to check that the value of the Me.RadChart1.SkinsOverrideStyles property is set to false, as it will otherwise void your changes.

Sincerely yours,

Hello Evtim,

thanks for answering. I set Me.RadChart1.SkinsOverrideStyles=true and RadChart1.SeriesPalette = "" so the chart accepted my change.

Best Regards,
Rebecca
