    Good Morning,

    I appear to be running into a 6 color limitation for series.  The following jsFiddle highlights the issue: http://jsfiddle.net/sakers85/hn6nZ/

    As you can see the Size "X" has duplicate colors for Grade CUL and WXB.  The same is true for Size "150" which has duplicate colors for Grade PRO and WXF.

    Is my only option to explicitly set the seriesColors property with more colors than needed?  This could be an issue as the datasource is remote and can change at any given time based upon the request.

    Please advise on the best course of action.  Thanks,
    Sean

    Hi Sean,

    I have already answered to the same question in you other thread, however I am pasting my reply here too:

    The observed issue is due to by default are defined only six colors for the Chart series. As another approach for your scenario (except using the seriesColors option) I can suggest you setting colors via theoptions, however keep in mind you should refresh() the chart. I.e.:Copy Code

    //get reference to the chart widget
    var chart = $("#chart").data("kendoChart");
    //get chart series
    var series = chart.options.series;
    //set color to the first series
    series[0].color="red"
    //refresh the chart
    chart.refresh();
