I need to reproduce the background (Service Category) that shows sample.jpg, by default is black but I need to use that background. Can I put an image as background? if not, Can I use gradient in the background chartTitle?
Thank you.

Hello Chris Thierry,

You can set whatever you want as ChartTitle's background.
Just add the following style in your resources:
    <Style x:Key="TitleStyle" TargetType="charting:ChartTitle">
        <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Center" />
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Red" />
        <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="#FFB5B5B5" />
        <Setter Property="OuterBorderBrush" Value="Black" />
        <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="1" />
        <Setter Property="OuterBorderThickness" Value="1" />
        <Setter Property="Padding" Value="7" />
        <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="White" />
        <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="11" />
        <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Bold" />
and modify the background property. I am sending you all properties that can be set to something different.

The default value for the ChartTitle's background in the "Office Black" theme is:
<LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.5,1" StartPoint="0.5,0">
    <GradientStop Color="#FF5B5B5B" Offset="1"/>
    <GradientStop Color="#FF868686"/>
    <GradientStop Color="#FF4F4F4F" Offset="0.42"/>
    <GradientStop Color="#FF0E0E0E" Offset="0.43"/>

You need to set your custom style in your code-behind:
RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartTitle.Content = "Service Category";
RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartTitle.Style = this.Resources["TitleStyle"] as Style;

I hope this helps.
