    I have a custom palette I'd like to use for my Rad Chart. The problem is that only one color gets used per bar. I'm assuming this is because I only have one data series. How to get configure the chart to use a different color for each bar?

    Here's my current chart configuration:

    <telerik:RadChart runat="server" ID="rc1" DefaultType="Bar" DataSourceID="sds1"
                   SeriesOrientation="Horizontal" Width="500px" Height="500px">
                     <Appearance Dimensions-AutoSize="false" Dimensions-Width="400px" Dimensions-Height="400px" Dimensions-Margins="50px" FillStyle-MainColor="72, 102, 137" FillStyle-SecondColor="72, 102, 137">
                     <XAxis Appearance-ValueFormat="General" DataLabelsColumn="Company" Visible="True" Appearance-TextAppearance-TextProperties-Color="Black"></XAxis>
                     <YAxis Appearance-TextAppearance-TextProperties-Color="Black"></YAxis>
                    <telerik:ChartSeries DataYColumn="Count">
                                    <Shadow Blur="0" Distance="0"  Color="Transparent"/>
                   <Appearance Dimensions-AutoSize="false" Border-Visible="false">
                      <Shadow Blur="5" Distance="3" />
                    <Legend Visible="false"></Legend>
                    <ChartTitle Visible="true" Appearance-Dimensions-AutoSize="false" Appearance-Dimensions-Width="315px" Appearance-Dimensions-Height="40px"
                      Appearance-Dimensions-Margins="0px" Appearance-Dimensions-Paddings="0px" TextBlock-Text="Chart1" Appearance-Position-Auto="false"
                      Appearance-Position-X="5" Appearance-Position-Y="5" Appearance-Shadow-Color="Transparent"></ChartTitle>

    Hi Alex,

    Chart Palettes colors are applied on series as a whole and not on individual series items. In order to make the chart use different colors for each bar, you will need to manually assign colors on the individual items. Please check this help topic for an example of that. Note that the RadChart.SeriesPalette property should not be set.

    I hope this helps.
